Volunteers/Interns that stay 1-3 months will share a room with one more person. If you stay more than 3 months, we do offer a single room. We have various houses that we place our volunteers and interns in. All the houses have wifi, kitchens, bathrooms, cupboard space and bedding. The houses are a great place to meet other volunteers and students doing internships.
For larger groups, we use Observatory Backpackers, which is a beautiful house with everything you need, including a braai area, huge garden, and communal areas.
The only extra cost is that of electricity ( not at the backpackers). The reason it is not included in the price is to make people aware of how much they are using, and in this way, it helps with saving electricity. It will not involve any large sums of money (about 10 euro / month).
You also have the option of booking your own accommodation should you wish, and we then deduct that from the overall price of your package. We do recommend that we help you, if you never been to South Africa before or do not know anyone here.
