Tambor del Llano Eco Lodge Natural Park

If you like the countryside, animals, well-preserved nature, dark skies to see the stars, and meet people from all over the world, in one of the most beautiful corners of Andalusia this is your place. You can help us develop our project, while you take the opportunity to learn Spanish, and get to know the white towns of Cádiz and Málaga. We are in one of the most beautiful cultural and natural landscapes in Spain. With an excellent climate. Our project is a challenge, we are trying to develop a KM0 ecological farm, which can be self-sufficient, and demonstrate that it is possible to live in a remote rural area, taking advantage of the natural and cultural resources of the territory, and leaving the smallest possible footprint. Respecting the environment, and creating a sustainable exploitation, compatible with the wild fauna and flora of the Natural Park where we are, while employing local people, so that Grazalema continues to be a living space. Help us make it possible. Come be part of our family, and if you like horse riding, come and listen to that drum…. The sunsets in our stellarium (ancient era), the paths that start from the farm itself, and that allow you to enter the wildest mountain ranges of the Grazalema Natural Park, if you like to walk and discover flora, fauna and a exceptional vegetation, you will be in the right place.

We are a family to which various professionals have gradually joined to offer the best services to our clients and hosts. We like nature, walking, horses, the stars, producing the food that we eat directly, meeting people from all over the world. We like to be hosts, and share this beautiful corner in which we have been fortunate to settle with all of you. We are a small enthusiastic team that is determined to move the project forward. Raul, Nano and Ernesto have joined our family to tend the horses, the flock of sheep, the orchard, and our visitors. Beli and Ani, they take care that everything is clean and tidy, Ana Belén and Isa cook and serve an exceptional homemade meal, using whenever we can products from the farm itself, or nearby premises, Carmen helps us organize the whole team , and takes care of the reception and administration. You will help us mainly to welcome visitors with hospitality, to dedicate time to them, to show them the farm, the facilities of the farm, the trails they can do, or the places they can visit, to discover the stars at night, since they feel at home. If you also want to help in the garden, water the plants, or feed the animals, we will be delighted that you help us, and teach you the experience that we have gradually acquired on the farm. You will be part of this family, as one more. Our place takes its name from the poem Luna Luna by Spanish poet García Lorca. The quartet goes: The horserider approached, beating the drum of the plains This is a beautiful literary figure to describe the sound made by galloping horses over the Grazalema plains, which karstic hollow rocks filled with caves. A sound you will often hear in our place!

My experience in Tambor del llano was the best volunteering I've ever done, the entire team were very welcoming, the facilities are excellent, the job is easy and can be of great variety. You really are part of the team and have a lot of free time to enjoy the nature around,perfect for hiking and sightseeing. I recommend this to all volunteers that seek tranquility. It's far from the cities but if you need you can take a bus and go to Grazalema, Ronda or even Seville. If you love nature, peace and amazing landscapes here's the place!!!

Mi experiencia en Tambor del Llano fue la mejor. El lugar es hermoso y la gente es encantadora. Recomiendo este lugar a cualquiera que ame la naturaleza, los animales y busque un lugar de tranquilidad. Durante el tiempo que estuve aquí logré mejorar mi español y practicar un poco de inglés. Las tareas eran variadas, desde trabajar en la cocina, lavar los platos, ayudar con el desayuno y servir la cena, y recibir a los invitados cuando fuera necesario. Me gustaría agradecer enormemente a todos en Tambor por su amabilidad. No podía olvidar decir que extrañaré mucho la comida de Ana.

Fue mi primer voluntariado y una experiencia increíble! Me sentí como en mi casa en todo momento y muy cuidada, ofreciéndome lo mejor siempre. Todo el personal del "Tambor del llano" es muy cálido y familiar. Estar en este lugar sin duda es un privilegio y estoy muy muy agradecida!! Todos aportando su granito de arena hicieron de mi estadía una hermosa anécdota. Pude disfrutar muchísimo de la naturaleza, los animales y aprender sobre la sierra de Grazalema, que sin duda volveré a visitar! Gracias a todos por hacerme conocer más sobre España 🧡 Espero verlos pronto!!

Tambor del Llano is a literal paradise! ☀️ I had such a great time here; the place is beautiful and the people are so lovely. 100% recommend to anyone who loves nature, animals and wants to stay in a calm space where there's not much to do (pretty isolated from everything). During my time here my Spanish improved a lot as it's primarily spoken by most of the staff :) The tasks were very diverse: from working in the vegetable garden and painting hotel rooms to helping out at breakfast and serving dinner, as well as welcoming guests in the afternoon...
Gracias a todos, can't wait to come back!
