  • Description


    Ray moved to Africa 11 years ago, to follow his dreams: to open up a hostel/motel/hotel for the flashpacker (backpacker with creditcard). He has been around the world several times and full with his experiences he thought: “this could be better!” Quality runs high on our standards. We would like to have sufficient stock and all should be functioning and well maintained. We do not like to sell a “no”. This isn’t the African way of doing business for most ;-) It is with reason we receive the Tripadvisor “certificate of excellence” ever since we’ve opened up. It still is and will be hard work to entertain our guests, coming up with new ideas. It is something that must not be underestimated and takes a lot of energy and flexibility.
    We have 6 funky private cabins, 3 rooms (suites), 1 dormitory and 4 pre pitched tents (with light and power). We can host a maximum of 48 people. In high season (December) we also do camping, we have an ablution block with 2 showers/toilets and 1 more “outdoor” shower.

    Everything is based on music! Or as we say our self “we provide your soundtrack to make life just that little bit sweeter” Our cabins have been named after “influential” artists and we have several playlists for every moment of the day. Often we have events such as live bands, DJ’s, Karaoke or a pubquiz.

    At the end of the year we organize a festival and here your help comes in!

    We have 14 employees running around:
    4 barmen
    4 kitchen staff
    2 maintenance
    1 gardener
    1 cleaning ladies
    2 security guards

    You will learn how to work in an African environment, with local people and limited sources available. We cannot just simply order online and receive it by post, that does not exist here! You will learn how to set up a festival in African environment.

    We are looking for someone that can help us come up with ideas and create decoration for our annual festival.

    This is our end of year festival that consists of several night time parties, day parties centered around our pool and our very famous 1st of January day time pool party or the after of the NY eve night as we open at 6AM already for a 20hr marathon with various national and international DJ’s. The events pulls up to 500 persons on a daily basis.

    Are you the creative genius that can turn some left over fabric and wood into art and deco for our festival? Or are you a musical genius with an excellent taste of music. The one that can create the vibe with his wide range of music….from funky disco to tech house with a bit of Afro…Have some basic knowledge on how to set up a sound system, we are not looking for a master decree in sound engineering but someone with a good feel for a party and preferably also a DJ that can turn the place upside down?
    We are looking for creative persons with a big feel for House music, art and décor and good taste then come and join our electronic circus.

    About Tofo:
    Think about paradise.... Captured it? Yes, that's Tofo! It is very tropical, Tofo is laying at the azure Indian Ocean. It still isn’t discovered by mass tourism and reasonably unexplored. The actual village of Tofo is very small, just a few streets. Due to its popular tourist activities (diving, surfing and beachlife) there’s quiet a few expats living here (approx 100). There are 4 diving schools, several hotels, backpackers and restaurants. The higher part/dune area of Tofo is called Tofinho, this a more spacious, less “hectic” and a lot greener than Tofo. This is where we are located, a 15min walk from Tofo market and a 5min walk from Tofinho beach. Which recently got voted as one of the top 10 best surfing spots of the world!
It is safe here, much safer than SA and as a woman you can walk here at night on the streets.
 Tofo is world renowned for its diving: Whale sharks, manta Rays, dolphins and whales in season. You’ll all find it here. Almost all of our guests come to dive or surf.
