  • Description

    Description

    We are an eco-lodge offering customisable tours in the Little Rann of Kutch. We also have a number of side projects working to improve the lives of those in the community.

    We are looking for volunteers for a minimum of 3 weeks who are flexible and have good interpersonal skills. Ideally this position is suited to a couple or friends as it can involve a certain amount of collaboration and multitasking. However we are of course open to single travelers.

    It is of huge benefit to have at least one person with a good knowledge of the bird life here as many travelers come to this region specifically for birding. Otherwise, a keen interest in wildlife and ability to pick up species quickly will be satisfactory. This will allow you to accompany guests on safari enhancing their experience as our staff members are not fluent in English.
