Farewell, Lily

The end of May was quite rough here at DAKTARI.

Those of you who came to volunteer with us in the last couple of years will definitely know Lily.

We're on Airbnb!

You can now find us on Airbnb!

My name is Marjo Kommeren, aged 55 years and I’m Dutch. I stayed at DAKTARI for 4 weeks.

 

I always wanted to come to South Africa, to work as a nurse, but it never happened because I got married, got kids etc. Now my kids are grown up en independent, I decided to go traveling to places I always wanted to go. But when I researched travel arrangements I did not like them, I wanted to do something more active. My son then said: do volunteer work! He showed me DAKTARI's website and I was exited immediately. It gives me the opportunity to contribute to education and nature conservation at the same time.

A happy ending for this little bush baby

Here at DAKTARI, we are always saving baby animals… some we find and some are brought to us. A few of the most common animals include; squirrels, bats, mongooses, bushbucks, klipspringers and bush babies. Bush babies are my personal favorite. Who wouldn’t love that little face with the big eyes?

Animals are the best teachers

January has been a busy month again for our wildlife orphanage! We welcomed 5 new babies, four squirrels and one klipspringer.

Hi there!

 

My name is Silke, I’m 22 years young and live in Belgium. Normally, I was supposed to stay at DAKTARI for 4 weeks. However, after living my dream for 3 weeks, I realised I wasn’t ready to say goodbye yet and decided to add another 2. I’m sad to say that my adventure has come to an end, but I can gladly say that these past 6 weeks were the best ones of my life.
