Volunteer Program

Volunteer applications for 2021 are now closed.

This is a call to all those who would like to create change, collaborate, and co-create a new story, seeding a regenerative culture, cultivating the root system of a new paradigm.

The Pachamama volunteer program engages heads, hearts, and hands, sharing skills, knowledge, and experience, and taking practical collective action in service to life and beauty.

A process of restoring the inner and outer landscape.

Contact us for more information, or apply below.

Please note: We do not accept ‘walk in’ volunteers. Anyone wishing to volunteer at Pachamama should complete the application process. This is essential. We don’t make exceptions!


Choose from quiet forest cabins all the way to raw camping… whatever your choice, you shall find rest in the forest bubble.

We have several beautiful wooden, hand-built cabins, an open plan communal kitchen and dining area, a hall for yoga & meditation. Sustainable rainwater systems, composting toilets, fire heated showers, an organic food garden and a fire temple.

Forest Cabins

Walking among tall trees along a short forest path, you find five wooden cabins.  All cabins were built on the property and offer an immersive nest within the forest.

Cabins sleep one or two people and have comfortable single beds with shelves, bedding & extra blankets for the winter. Single or shared occupation is available. Our new cabin is suited for couples, containing a double bed.


We are positioned right next to the indigenous forests of the Garden Route National park, inhabited by ancient trees, diverse plant and animal life, including the mysterious Knysna elephant, vervet monkeys, baboons, the Knysna Lourie, and much more. We are about 30 minutes walk from the Homtini river, which offers opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, swim, or adventure down the river gorge. If you have a vehicle, you can explore the nearby towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Sedgefield over weekends.
