A few months ago DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage applied for the Kudu award, which is an initiative to celebrate the successes and contributions of individuals and groups in conservation management in South Africa. The awards are presented by the South African National Parks as a way of rewarding excellence in conservation by external stakeholders. It is also sponsored by Total SA and FNB.

Joining forces for a brighter future!

On October, DAKTARI and the Anti-Poaching Unit of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) went to three local high schools (Maahlamele, Rakgolokwana and Leoma) to discuss the terrible crime of poaching and to do an anti-poaching demonstration.

Hello. My name is Joshua Hopkins or David as some people called me by my middle name for the first week or so. I am from Scotland and I stayed at DAKTARI for a total of 10 weeks. I really wanted to spend my summer doing something productive and rewarding and as I loved working with children and animals, it seemed that DAKTARI was the best place for me. This was definitely not wrong!

Two new team members at DAKTARI!

We are happy to welcome Pat and Tjaša in our team!

"My name is Marine, I am 18 years old, I come from France and I stayed one month in DAKTARI.

"My name is Maya, I am a 19-year-old French girl and I decided to volunteer at Daktari for three weeks. I decided to come here by myself to improve my English but also because I wanted to discover South Africa. I started thinking about volunteering a few years ago, but I never had a precise idea of what I wanted to do, so when I discovered the organisation on Lea Camilleri’s channel, I signed up immediately."
