    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am overseas most of the time, but you will work and assist Rene, my wife and Chris my 13 year old son. Port Elizabeth is about 100km away, and there are many tourist attractions, as well the Addo National game park nearby. You would live in your own cottage with all amenities. But we like to cook and eat together. There is a swimming pool at the house and a river and waterfall, not too far away.
