Left in a trust by a local figure to the municipality, the Backpackers is currently managed by an NGO involved in community outreach with an emphasis on underprivileged schools and tourism promotion in the Eastern Cape. Our current mission is to renovate the facilities while continuing to welcome local schools and groups and backpackers and 100% of the profits earned are reinvested in the property. Once the property will be sufficiently upgraded the proceeds will finance the NGO's projects.

We need help in many areas : hospitality of course but also building, gardening, decoration, cooking, art work... Choose your field of expertise, or where you want to gain skills and there's certainly somewhere you can fit in.

I have a small holding (five hectares) in the mountains of Hogs Back, I am currently building wooden structures. We are busy with gardening and landscaping to accommodate campers. I am a qualified woodworker and Leather Master craftsman and have taught many apprentices in both fields. The work is hard but rewarding in beautiful surroundings.

Many thanks

This is also a guest farm and the volunteers will help to take the guests on trailrides with the horses.

Minimum stay is one month. You must be sporty, love horse, animals and nature.

This is a privately owned ancient indigenous forest situated between Stanford and Gansbaai in the Western Cape. It is a 2 hour drive from Cape Town and set in a beautiful valley. The forest is a short 15 minute drive from Walker Bay where the Southern Right Whales return each year to birth their young. Shops and restaurants are easily accessible.

We are open to guests and offers forest trails, as well as accommodation set beneath the ancient trees. There is a tree nursery of indigenous trees, many of which are grown for rehabilitating parts of the forest that were felled in days past. Thousands of these trees are planted in these rehabilitation sites each year in May when the first winter rains start. The planting takes place during the annual Reforest Festivals that are held at Platbos.

Volunteers can also learn about the Platbos African Tree Essences (see www.africantreeessences.co.za)

We are a working alpaca farm near Paarl in the Western Cape. But there also are some sheep, dromedaries, horses and the usual farmyard crowd. There are also our son Daniel, 4 years, and Amelia, 2 years.
Additionally we do have a coffee shop and weaving studio on the farm.
Volunteer help is needed for a never-ending list of small and big projects:
The coffee shop always benefits from help, and the kids love to be looked after, too. To get a better English-language base for the two kids, we would currently love to have native English speakers who would be interested in spending time with them.
Hands are also welcome for any of the planned extensions - agility course for alpacas, kids party area,... Landscaping will need doing around the coffee shop now towards the end of winter.
Our five dromedaries also always do benefit of more training, be it ground work or riding (horse experience a must for this).
And there's always things like gardening, clearing of alien vegetation, and ... more inside

We are a surf development project based in Muizenberg, Cape Town - South Africa. We use surfing as a building block to uplift and educate at-risk youth in the disadvantaged communities in Cape Town.

We can't accommodate you but perhaps you have skills to offer to help us with our mission and you can join us for some fun in the water.
