Our bar has become popular with the locals and I need help to run it at night. I need volunteers who feel that they can manage late night revelers and who will enjoy the bonus of getting tips, normally 10% of take. Duties start at 4-00 pm.. The nature of the position requires a minimum of a 2 month commitment and I am wanting to fill my roster through to December this year.

We are currently recruiting for another super high season! We need hands in most departments, Bartenders, front of house, running the adventure centre, housekeeping and kitchen duties. We are also looking for avid gardeners! (removal of alien vegetation and establishing new veg and herb gardens) In return for your services we offer dorm accommodation, all meals and free use of our adventure equipment like kayaks and stand up paddle boards. You will also have plenty of time to explore our backyard.

We are a family of 5 who lead regular city lives, however we are in the process of trying to convert our home, into an urban farm with food forest / permaculture / organic influences.

We currently have fruit and nut trees, some chickens, ducks and quail, some annual vegetable patches and a small nursery.

With winter here, we are getting into planting and pruning. With a bit of luck you might get to choose your work from the list if I have no preference. In no special order.
Building a ramp to the front of the house.
Setting up our Aquaponics system.
Rain tanks are connected, leaf catchers needed
Building wicking beds, recycled bricks obtained.
Propagating and repotting in the nursery

Antbear Lodge offers visitors a unique opportunity of a volunteer program for those of you who would like to spend a bit more time being a bit closer to the South Africa lifestyle. Andrew used to volunteer all over the world 30 years ago and loved the experience and this is something he has created to give something back.

Volunteers have 2 options.

1. You can either work together with Andrew doing woodwork and alternative building. Andrew will teach you our unique style of woodwork and alternative building. Passion for this is everything but experience will help too. Its difficult to say exactly what you will be doing but we integrate volunteers into our sustainable projects. Its dusty so make sure you bring cloths you don't mind getting dirty. And this is where I think the real opportunities are to be found and the longer you stay the more you will get from the experience. Once you show you are getting a handle on things you will be responsible your own project.

We are located on a hill just across from the Beach. Boasting breathtaking views, purest of air and scenery, nestled slightly in a semi-tropical forest by the sea...this is the place which is known for its one-of-a-kind amazing atmosphere, tantalizingly delicious foods, private self-catering cottages, soulful connections, fresh yet traditional outlooks,and its wide variety of endlessly rejuvinating activities like hiking, swimming in waterfalls, drumming, village excursions.. the list is infinite.

Yes... it is a lot of work living in Paradise, but paradise also needs nourishment, care and respect for indigenous landscapes and the original culture of people whom have made this a home to many generations that have come and will forever go on.. with YOUR HELP...

We took on the management of the family property and guesthouse in 2016. We are currently establishing a mixed enterprise micro farm as well as running the guesthouse. Our vision is to offer retreat style country accommodation as well as fresh organic produce to our community.
We have a strong emphasis on sustainability and becoming as self sufficient as possible. We grow, make and bake as much of our own food as possible.
We are looking for helpers to assist with the day to day operations of the farm and guesthouse. This includes maintenance, building, tree felling, gardening, carpentry, livestock care and management, planting and harvesting on the farm and guest interaction and meal preparation in the guesthouse.

The property is set in the foothills of the Drakensberg, surrounded by mountains and indigenous forest. Because of this, we do not have cellphone reception at the house but have WiFi throughout. We are pretty remote, about 30minutes drive to the nearest shops, resta... more inside

Situated in natural sand forest adjacent to the largest of the lakes in the Kosi Bay Lake system. This is a natural environment that is part of the first World Heritage site proclaimed in South Africa. There is direct walk in access to the lake. From there are extensive tracks to wander in the forest. The local beaches although not close are unspoilt, a visit to Kosi Mouth to snorkel in the sanctuary and ocean is possible even by hiking.
We are looking for volunteers to help out with daily maintenance tasks, construction projects, local park area clean-ups.
Planting of herb spirals and other growing projects are needed. Interaction with the guests is normally interesting and fun. Accommodation will be provided in a lodge style tent and some meals will be provided. If you are volunteering in the North of KwaZulu Natal it would be easy to reach the local town by taxi where you could be collected.
