  • Description


    A family owned property provides bed and breakfast as well as camping experiences. There are over 10 double beds in 9 rooms plus a hostel that can accommodate about 20 persons. The family spends a substantial amount of the income for tuition of vulnerable children and church work. We are located on a crater lake 30minutes from the new tourism city of Fort Portal, western Uganda. The region has about 52 crater lakes, amazing terrain and vegetation, cool weather and sandwiched between 3 national parks.

    Employees that stay with proprietors include: One watchman for night duty, two housekeepers, three builders, one compound maintenance and three for crop gardens.

    We are seeking services of one/two volunteer(s) to help establish tourists activities (build zipline and kids play park), market the services (use social media and networking skills to invite local and foreign tourists) and improve efficiency (train staff in the reception manners, housekeeping and billing)

    We will learn from his marketing and networking skills and homestead upgrade. Our home conserves nature and we wish it to remain a leading example of a green serene resort that cares for the vulnerable persons in the locality.
