    Descripción

    We are a mixed (Belgian-Xhosa) family of 4 who started a backpackers in Sept. 2012 in a remote Xhosa village just 20 minutes outside Hogsback in the Eastern cape. We are an eco-conscious backpackers. All our water is collected from the roof and harvested in water tanks. Water is heated by our solar boilers or with our hot water donkey. We don't use flushing toilets but use compost toilets instead. We are partly of the grid and generate electricity mostly from solar panels.
    We are very involved in our community and have set up a number of social programs to create jobs or to generally improve peoples live.

    Due to Covid19 we had to close business, but are looking for an ethousiastic and responsible couple to continue with our dream while we are overseas. Minimum agreement for 1 year. Food, accommodation + salary included.
