Hello future workawayer. Looking for one traveller or a couple to assist in general going ons around the camp.
It's a new campsite just outside the gate of mburo national park.
There's 10 permanent staff, who are all very good workers and know what they have to do, so your role would be to just to rope in with whatever needs doing on any particular day, from painting, to wiring to chatting with guests to making furniture.
It s a really cool opportunity to learn some random skills and enjoy the nature. Have now had a few successful volunteers. Really open to what you as a volunteer can bring to the camp so the experience depends on your interest, we had a girl who was great at marketing so focused on that side, a guy who was brilliant at handy jobs so he did a lot of painting and sanding furniture- and helped me construct a swinging bed, most recent volunteer was really into yoga so offered it to guests, and also made some amazing signs for the property.
volunteer must be responsible, outgoing and enjoy meeting new people, and happy to spend their time in the middle of the Ugandan Bush. It's really special here and amazing spot for birding, nature walks, safari etc. Ideally volunteer could also drive as im currently the only staff member with liscense and we go to town to get supplies usually once a week.
