  • Description


    We are a beautiful, popular, eco-friendly backpackers that overlooks the stunning Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve on the Garden Route of South Africa. Only 8km from Natures Valley beach and lagoon, our farm is surrounded by natural forests, wildlife, peace and quiet. We have a private waterfall in the forest and a constant flow of interesting, adventurous, passionate and conscious travellers passing by every single day.

    We encourage a stay of 1 month or longer, but can make exceptions where possible for shorter time-frames.
    We are particularly interested in people with experience or interest in the hospitality industry (reception, bar, cooking), alternative energy, organic gardening and carpentry. However, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have other skills to offer which you think will benefit the space (ie: yoga classes, art, general maintenance, etc). If you have experience with horses then please tell us!

    If you are RELIABLE, enthusiastic, enjoy being sociable and will respect our ethos (environmentally friendly, community living, respecting all people and animals) then we want to hear from you!

    We look forward to hearing from you!
