  • Help


    We're looking for friendly, outgoing volunteers, who can speak English well, to help with guest check-ins and reception at our boutique backpackers.

    Just 1 km from our gate, you will find the excellent surf beach called Victoria Bay, one of the most consistent surf spots in Africa! We are also close by to hiking routes, kayaking, biking, swimming, canyoning, waterfalls, rivers and beaches.
    The shops are not within walking distance, but a car is available for rent at very affordable price or you can rent a car.

    We host hundreds of international backpackers and guests all year round and invite you to be part of this great place! Off days are left for surfing, exploring the coastal forest, a South African Braai, reading in the hammocks, biking, swimming, campfires, and music.

    Length of stay and working hours are flexible, yet if we both enjoy the experience I would prefer you stay 4 weeks or longer. When contacting me, please use the heading Kwagga. This is mandatory. Preference given to non-smokers and those with a good sense of humor.

    Help required includes:
    • Help with check-in and check-out of our guests.
    Cleaning rooms & serving guests.
    • Assist guests with booking of activities in the area, restaurant recommendations etc.

    What we offer you:
    • A bed in the shared volunteer/guest dorm room which includes linens and a towel
    • Use of all the facilities, including:
    • Laundry
    • WiFi
    • TV’s
    • Braai facilities
    • A quiet, laid back, relaxed atmosphere with plenty of free time and some of the BEST SURF in South Africa!
