We are a backpackers on the rural Wild Coast of Eastern Cape. We are 500 meters from the beach and great surf. The business is part community owned, and everyone's input is needed to keep on making this the awesome place it is. We get visitors year round and they come here for the nature and quiet. We are far from town and busy city lives.

You will be living in a Xhosa community and are welcome to get involved with projects happening or just go for walks in the village and meet the friendly locals.
The volunteer position is primarily to assist us with afternoon/evening office shifts - serving dinner, creating a good vibe for the guests ie by playing music, lighting candles, welcoming people. Office work includes dealing with guest queries; communications via phone, email, whatsapp; checking guests into the facility and assisting them with payments and checkouts; making bookings on the system.
During your free time, depending on your skills, you are welcome to help with carpentry, painting or gardening.
The volunteer accommodation is either a caravan or a small rondavel with a single bed.
In your free time you can hike the coastline, go kayaking on the Mdumbi River, or surf the Mdumbi Point break. During our winter months the ocean life gets really amazing and many whales and dolphins can be spotted daily.
Our closest grocery shop is about a 45 min drive away however you will always be able to make a plan to jump in when someone else is driving there. You will eat every dinner with us, so just breakfasts and lunches will be self catered.
We are all laid back, relaxed people but take the business and tourism seriously. Living at Mdumbi is great but can get busy and demanding. We expect others who share in this beautiful spot to bring their part, bring something fresh, and have a good time, learning and growing with us on this awesome little journey we are privileged to share in.
