    Nameste workawayers, I hope this finds you well.

    My name is Dhanraj and together with my family, we run an eco-lodge offering customizable safari tours in the Little Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. The eco-lodge is located next to a lake and the property attracts over 70 species of birds and is nestled in a green and very quiet environment.

    The accommodation here is in the form of eco-friendly cottages that each has a private bathroom. In total, we have 17 cottages and around 20 local staff members.
    We also have a number of side projects working to improve the lives of those living in the local communities.

    Due to the nature of our work, we ideally prefer long-term volunteers (many of our past workawayers have stayed months longer than intended), however, we can absolutely accommodate shorter stays as well (minimum stay: two weeks).

    It is of huge benefit if you have good knowledge of birds as many guests come to this region specifically for birdwatching. Otherwise, an interest in wildlife and the ability to pick up bird species quickly will be satisfactory. This will allow you to accompany guests on safaris enhancing their experience as our staff members are not fluent in English. However, we do need help with a variety of tasks, so in case nature and wildlife do not have your biggest interest, it is not a problem :)

    As the eco-lodge is located nearby the Indian Wild Ass Sanctuary you will have the opportunity to visit the park regularly. A great opportunity to visit and photograph wildlife and explore the real authentic life in Gujarat. There are also tours to visit the fascinating nomadic tribes which are famous in this area of Gujarat. As the lodge supports a school for children from the age of 14 to 18 years you have the opportunity to experience a local village school. You could visit the school to teach them English, computer skills, etc., and in exchange learn Hindi.
    The lodge also has its own horses. If you are interested in horses, you could learn about the local breed and help in horse riding safaris. As we are closely connected with the local artisans you have the opportunity to see, learn and photograph local bead jewelry-making, basket weavers, and textile producers.
    Gujarat is famous for its embroidery and we have many women doing this in our region.
