  • Description


    I am a Bedouin, named Ghassab, and I am living in little Petra.
    I was born in a cave in Petra. All my family is born in caves, and nowadays they live in a village, that was built by the government. We are real beduins, still living in the mountains, often staying in tents and caves.

    I have a herd of 60 goats which me and my mother look after, taking them up into the mountains every day. My mother is 85 years old and is a healer with natural medicine, she knows all about medicine from herbs, and until a few years ago assisted with births. She speaks arabic and is very strong and healthy for her age.

    I studied natural medicine and yoga, and I am specialized in physiotherapy (cracking joints).
    Now I have ideas to make a good place for tourists, around my cave, so everybody can enjoy Eco life in nature.

    Here in Jordan I have my own travel organisation and I am also working as a guide. I speak 3 languages which are Arabic, English, German.

    I am looking for volunteers who like to work with animals to help herding the goats up in the mountains, as well as cleaning and feeding them at the stall.

    I look for volunteers with plenty of time and patience, happy to adapt to different situations and learn more about beduin culture. Working hours are flexible and sometimes i like to make nature trips with my guests.

    The work is from one week to three weeks.
    During your free time, you can go hiking, learning Bedouin cooking, enjoying nature, visiting Bedouin families or listening to the silence... and of course visiting Petra.

    Hope to hear from you!! We are accepting volunteers

    Autres infos...

    I am living a sober life in nature, and want to make everything eco.
    I have a jeep for transport.
    I am a really good cook.
    The area where I live is a great place for hiking or outdoor activities in general. Petra is really close, and you can spend your free time discovering the "City of Stone".
    Not too far are also other places worth visiting : Shobak castle, Wadi Ghweir, Wadi Araba and its high sand dunes, Petra mountains and canyons. Further are also Wadi Rum and Aqaba, for a week-end for instance.
