We are a backpackers on the rural Wild Coast of Eastern Cape. We are 500 meters from the beach and great surf. The business is part community owned, and everyone's input is needed to keep on making this the awesome place it is. We get visitors year round and they come here for the nature and quiet. We are far from town and busy city lives.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Computers/ Internet
The volunteer position is primarily to assist us with our evening shifts - serving with dinner, creating ambiance, choosing music and answering guest questions and general socializing as well as answering of phone, receiving and checking in guests. During the days, if you are up to it, it be great if you can help with carpentry or gardening, depending on what you are into. Interaction with local employees and English practice is important.
Depending on how you long you staying and availability at the time, either shared dormitory or a private cd. Ablution and kitchen facilities are shared.
In your free time you can hike the endless coastline, go kayaking on the Mdumbi River, or surf the Mdumbi Point break - world class surf on your doorstep. Or just sit back, laze on the beach and enjoy an ocean safari and loose count of how many whales you spot. Transport is difficult, and getting to town and cities has to be finely planned. A 2 hour hike gets you to Coffee Bay, where you can get some night life in.
We are all laid back relaxed people who take our tourism seriously, and we want you to be a part of that. We live great lives, and at times things can get demanding, but we have awesome resources to unwind in. We share and care, but we are human and have our off days and busy days and lazy days.
We expect others to bring their part, bring new things to the table within reason, and to be independent and have a good time, learning and growing with us on this awesome little journey we are privileged to share in.
