Elephant Peace Project recommends a minimum stay of 1 week.
Based on the personal interests and qualities of the potential volunteer (studies, working experiences and own preferences), we will make up a personal program so the volunteer can give everything of himself.
Of course, the most important requirement to come volunteering with us, is to be a goodhearted, enthusiastic and a little bit crazy.
The volunteer will also have free time to explore the region on his own, with motorbike or bicycle, visit the local temples, the beautiful waterfalls or go mountain biking between forest and rice fields.
The price for the volunteering program only covers for accommodation, food and general expenses (see it as a donation). EPT affirms that the prices are fairly calculated and kept as low as possible.
If you require an adapted lunch (vegetarian, vegan of certain allergies), please inform us in advance.
