  • Description


    We are a family of five and live on a farm in the south of Namibia. We are a German/ Namibian couple with three children. Guido was born in Namibia and Aileen moved from Germany to Namibia in 2009. Our farm is 12.000ha big. We are currently looking for help for our youngest son, for light farm work (garden, etc.) and with training our farm horses. As a workawayer on our farm you get the chance to dip deeper into an authentic Namibian farmlife. During your stay you will become part of the family and we hope you will gain a once-in-a-lifetime experience you will never forget.
