Our rustic-style house is large, bright and fully immersed in nature with a large garden. We often have the pleasure of listening to hyenas and jackals at night and in the mornings we can see the sun rising over the mountains. Our garden contains a small plunge pool and a braai area for cooking around the fire on Sunday evenings. There is also a shady pagoda with hammocks for when the day gets too hot or you just would like to relax.
Volunteers stay in dorm rooms with shared bathrooms. Each room is equipped with four single beds or two bunk beds. The rooms are spacious and we try to keep ladies and gents separated for privacy.
There is one bathroom per room.
Please remember to bring your own towel and sleeping bag as we provide bed sheets, blankets and pillows but no duvet.
A double room with private bathroom is available upon request for a small surcharge and it is subject to availability.
