  • Description


    Hi There
    We are a family of 4. A single mum with 3 amazing young adult children who keep me in touch with everything exciting and up to-date. We would love someone old or young to come and spend time with us in Cape Town and experience this wonderful city in at the most southern part of Africa. You can experience Table Mountain, Safaris showing the big 5 and much more. We will only need you a maximum of 4-5 hours per day for 5 days of the week.
    I am now planning some kind of building type work; maybe painting, construction, laying of tiles, paving, wooden structures. First, however, is the painting of my apartment in the centre of Cape Town just at the foot of Table Mountain. Perhaps we can talk.
    I would appreciate someone who has experience in these fields, but perhaps the painting we can learn together.
    If you're Spanish, language exchange would be nice but someone from another culture is welcome too.

    You will have a chance to visit Africa from the safety of our home at the foot of Table Mountain right in the centre of Cape Town. Experience the culture and beautiful sites like Table Mountain and the wild animals like lions, rhinos, buffaloes, elephants etc in their natural habitat. We live in the city centre so everything is very close to us.
