    We are one of CNN's top 10 world road trip destinations. As being said we need Volunteers for a good cultural exchange and extra working hands around the estate. You may be involved in many farm work duties from working in the river to hiking mountains to tending to our horses. We have beautiful hiking trails up the Swartberg Mountains which is the second highest mountain range in South Africa. Our estate is situated deep within the valleys outside Calitzdorp(Town famous for their Wine and Port)
