  • Help


    We have a wonderful staff of 2 security guys and 3 boys working for us full time and normally dealing with cleaning showers, kitchen and dishes, rooms, helping guests to carry their luggage to the houses, keeping the whole property clean, doing maintenance and helping with new building projects.
    We are looking for people interested to stay in quiet part of the country and helping us with welcoming guests in the office on reception, showing them the rooms, explain about accommodation and the area, advise nearest restaurants or activities to do, etc., help with some maintenance or building if needed (we have stuff to do hard jobs so it will be something not difficult), keep the office neat, sell to guests some ice, brickets for makings barbecue or some cold drinks if they ask for, accept bookings for quad bikes tours that we do as well and help with normal everyday camp duties in order to keep the Complex and develop. Sodwana is an interesting place - it varies from season to season, so sometimes it's extremely full - normally on holidays, public holidays, school holidays, but sometimes it's very quiet and empty - can be or nobody or 3 clients.
    If you love people and to work with people, peace, nature, adventures, ocean, diving and just help us to develop our place - that's the right place for you.
