We are a couple running a boutique resort in Southern India in Kabini, Karnataka. Our property attracts a global set of clientele. We are completely into sustainable & sensitive tourism & try to sensitise our guests on the flora, fauna, culture of our area. We look forward to volunteers who could give us a minimum of 1 month in the following areas of work ... Chefs, gardeners, website designers, naturalists.
Rachel & Ravi
Creating/ Cooking family meals
We have 10 acres of property where we have extensively planted spices, fruits & other plants/trees.
98% of our staff are from the local villages & tribes. We live very close to a tiger reserve and on the banks of a beautiful river. We attract a lot of bird life Communication is a major issue with guest interaction. I would be glad to have volunteers who love nature, know their birds, enjoy photography to document their work and interact with guests.
We constantly try to upgrade our skills and a volunteer who could teach us western cuisine as well as a good baker, would be appreciated.
A basic Guest room with queen sized bed with attached toilet & hot water. We would be happy to provide accommodation and food.
With their time off, Volunteers can go for safaris conducted by the forest department, at a nominal cost. They can use our geared bicycles to explore the countryside, the nearest city is Mysore, a royal city of palaces & temples. Mysore Is 1 hour away from Kabini. There are numerous buses & vehicles from the property, plying to Mysore. The property has a swimming pool & billiards table that Volunteers can use. Volunteers who are keen on birds would find it a paradise.
