There was nothing but nature when our family, half German, half Venezuelan, began to build up this camp 34 years ago on a place just beside a waterfall and natural pool full of pure, clean drinkable water, far away from civilization,in the south of Venezuela, The GRAN SABANA, near the frontier to Brasil.A tourist camp for adventurers emerged, built by our own hands mostly with original material from surrounding nature. It is now time to renovate all buildings and our vision is to turn it into a wellness retreat centre using, among others, the power of the everywhere present water.

It would be wonderful if the helper had some notion of construction, be it in the carpinter´s realm or welding or masonry, but we welcome any kind of assistance. The most important tool is an open mind and the willingness to help .There is plenty to do maintaining houses and garden as well as growing vegetables, cooking and cleaning.
We offer accomodation in rooms with 2 -4 beds, bathroom apart, and all meals. A bath in the natural pool, only a few meters away ,is a refreshing and renewing reward after the work or in between. Our climate here has the ideal temperature of 18 to 29 degrees celsius, the altitude of 850 meters makes the air specially healthy.
For those who want to improve their spanish, german or english- knowledge and practise we can come to an open agreement sparing some time for formal lessons,teached by me, Sabine .I, had been studying languages before I came to this place,and I had been doing home-schooling with my children until their final graduation.
In your free time you can explore the nature all around the place, make a trip to the edge of the table-mountain, called “abismo”, enjoying the amazing view over the green ocean of the Amazonian jungle, get a massage under different waterfalls, or even try to find some gold or diamonds. If, in addition, you want to do something for your health you can regenerate your body with relaxing activities from mud baths up to yoga-exercises.which are part of Sabine`s regular activities.
