    latest update on the covid 19 lockdown rules ,our borders are open from the 1st October 2020 for international visitors except from high risk area's. We are wholesale growers for the plant nursery industry located in the pictures Lowveld area situated next to the Kruger National Park. I live and work on a small family farm close to White River Mpumalanga , I'm single but have 5 big Dobermans and a cat that lives in the house with me so you will have to be comfortable with close contact with them but not to worry you won't have to share a room with them ,We are constantly upgrading and expanding our nursery and various other jobs are available. If you love plants and getting your hands dirty and a bronze tan then this is the workaway position for you. Please note that most of the chores are outdoors and in the sun ,if you have a sensitive skin please come with waterproof sunscreen ,we only have mild winters and you will still get sunburned this time of the year!

    You will learn a great deal about propagation ,cultivation of plants while being outdoors in a very beutiful area in south africa. If I can give potential workawayers some advice is to start with a host close to home to get some experience with the whole concept of workaway and then building on some good references

    Accommodation is on the farm where the nursery is located next to a river . You will have a shared room with bathroom hot water and electricity with wifi , we have a maid taking care of the cleaning , washing of clothes and tiding up. You will need to help with preparing the food that I will provide. There's is no maid on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays and cleaning will be required by yourselves. If you like peace and quiet except for the frogs and bird noise then you will enjoy your stay on this farm maybe even spot the Hippo in the river.

    Take travel insurance when traveling to Africa its not called a 3rd world country for no reason. The Lowveld area is well known for its beutiful landscapes and the world famous Kruger national park being close by ,there's some really nice hiking trails and waterfalls, botanical garden , historical towns and fishing on the propery. There is various ways of local transport to most of the places in the lowveld area , collecting and dropping you of for your stay will be arranged in the Nelspruit and White River area. I highly recommend Lowveld Link Travel for means of transport direct from O.R. Thambo International airport to Whiteriver
