  • Description


    I have a little farm with 10 stables and small house and cottage. There are horses, dogs and some other animals on the farm. I need help to take care of the animals, and clean out the paddocks and stables as well as exercising horses and dogs.
    I am looking for someone who have some experience with horses and want to live in a tranquil farm environment and love animals.

    The farm is situated 45 minutes from Cape Town so on off days it is conveniently suited to explore the big city.
    Rides through the vineyards are beautiful and the surrounds are perfect.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Get the opportunity to experience South Africas beautiful nature but still be close to the mother city.
    There will be many different people on the farm and so interesting conversations and new friendship can be made on this interesting and comfortable place.
    We would allow a lot of free time in between work and keep a light work schedule. Allowing a nice book to be read in the sun.
    You will get to learn a lot about animals & wildlife since I am myself working with animals and need help with the ones I have at my home while I am working.
    Possibility to help rearing rehab wildlife if I need to bring home.

    What else ...

    Cape town is great for any activities, shopping, hiking, diving, snorkeling, riding, beach etc.
    There is a lot of things to do.
    I also work at a Game Reserve so I could organize to bring you there at some point during off days and you can book to join a safari.
