    Sleeping cabin that you might need to share with other workawayers capacity is for 4 persons, outhouse (dry toilet).

    A single tent if you prefer or you can bring your own tent if you want.

    We can provide food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) but you need to help in cooking and washing/cleaning after. If you have specific preference, you are free to prepare your own food and we can take you to the grocery so you can buy your requirements.
