About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

J-Bay Zebra Lodge is 4 stars Country House situated on the Garden Route, only 20 minutes from Jeffreys Bay and 30 minutes from Port Elizabeth and 45 from Airport.

The Lodge is perfectly positioned on the top of a hill, with 360° views overlooking the Indian Ocean, the indigenous bush and the mountains.

J-Bay Zebra Lodge offers two outstanding Safari Tents, discretely positioned to ensure privacy and tranquility, also outstanding luxury suites and family room accommodation.

A timeless tranquility emanates from the bush life and the presence of wild animals. You will enjoy magnificent panoramas and nature at its best. We are looking for a person to supervise our house keeping (insure everything is up to Zebra Lodge standard) as well as helping with breakfast and dinner.
