    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will have some personal contact with the farmowners and can make the experience about farmlife in general under african desert conditions.
    Looking after animals, helping in the vegetable- and succulent gardens and general maintenance.
    Enjoy the remoteness, warm wheather and lots of sunshine.
    This place is more for the adventures nature lover who likes the simplicity !
    Just please keep in mind: although we are white farmers with a huge farm, we are not rich and not privileged. We havent got so much work and the ability that we can provide the food completely ! This has to be negotiated.
