About This Program

Become a volunteer now and work with our fantastic team as we continue to develop one of Guyana’s premier Eco-Lodges. In Karanambu, you will create bonds that go beyond friendship while having the opportunity to share and develop skills in the areas of tourism, hospitality, conservation, ranching, construction, and carpentry.

At Karanambu, we are always so eager to share the experience of the untouched natural beauty in this remote corner of South America. Volunteers can expect to work within all the fields offered at this project, though some of these may overlap due to the specific needs of the different components that make up Karanambu. There are also opportunities to visit and do outreach work in the neighboring Macusi villages of Kwaimatta, Yupukari, Massara, Toka and Simuni.

Most times volunteers have to prepare their breakfast. Because it’s an eco-lodge/ranch and conservation set up everyday tasks varies.
