  • Description


    I currently own and run a small guest lodge and would appreciate additional assistance.
    Offering 5 ensuite-rooms supplied for international visitors during their vacation in South Africa and is located in the scenic village of Montagu, Western Cape.
    Originally I am from the UK but have lived in South Africa permanently for 13 years, having visited on holiday and decided to emigrate to the wonderful country.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The accommodation is a short walk to shops and restaurants within the village and close to famous wineries, various hiking trails, rock climbing and mountain biking. The cultural exchange offered is direct contact with tourists from all over the world and an insight into running a small business. Montagu offers all necessary facilities for the discerning tourist and has lots of sunshine! The quiet lifestyle is more suited for the mature volunteer as a vibrant nightlife doesn't exist. The village is small where you can walk to all facilities or hire a bicycle, but be aware there is no Uber!

  • Help


    Volunteer help is sought for 4 hours per day, 5 days per week by mutual agreement.
    Tasks will be assisting with watering garden and plants, shopping, welcoming guests and handing out of keys and local area information. Work is uncomplicated and gives sufficient free time during the day, but a friendly, reliable person willing to interact with visitors is a must! Involvement with small maintenance jobs would also be appreciated!

  • Accommodation


    In return for work completed at the guesthouse helpers will be offered a free ensuite room with WiFi facility & food will be supplied so the volunteer can prepare for themselves 2 meals per day. An example of the accommodation is one of the pictures supplied.

    Montagu is located around 180km from Capetown (famous Route 62 starts from here). The Translux Bus service links Capetown with the city of Ashton, where the host will meet you. Montagu is a particularly friendly, safe and picturesque village environment where you can encounter many local sights.
