Great Experience
Age: 20
Country: South Africa

It definitely felt like I made a new family.

I enjoyed everything we did.

Taking care of the animals was fun for me and teaching the children was new to me but an awesome experience.

Everybody was respectful and polite to everyone.

Even though I did not always understand what they are talking, it was interesting to listen to a new language other than my own.

I would come back with no hesitation and recommend to my friends.

Thank you DAKTARI.

it was a bit quiet being the only volunteer, and a bit lonely when people were not speaking english and i was sat by myself, but apart from the couple of times that happened everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

i did expect the children to have more animal interactions especially being so close to other organisations.

the accommodation was nice but a bit lonely when everyone went to bed at 19:30 that was a-little early for me so had to chill in my room alone for a few hours.

the food was absolutely amazing i absolutely love Milli-pap!!

patience the volunteer coordinator was lovely and helped me settle in.

if i return i will make sure theres other volunteers maybe when corona is over.

I spent 2 week in DAKTARI and it was a wonderful experience! It's a very quiet place with super nice people. I strongly advise you to live this experience if you have the opportunity. Thank you DAKTARI

The 10 weeks I have bin here, have bin special!
I would recommend Daktari to everyone who want to make a difference in the life of children and who are looking to work with animals as well. When you stay here for a long time you will become part of a family that takes care off each other. I believe and love what they are doing. Volunteering at Daktari has bin one of the best decisions I ever took.

See you soon Daktari!

Great cultural experience
Age: 30
Country: Canada

I would recommend this program to everyone who wants to work with kids and make a difference in their life. You have a great opportunity to learn more about the culture and the traditions of the local communities. These kids are very underprivileged, and therefore, your lessons will have a great impact in their life. You will also take care of injured and/or hand raised animals that cannot be released into the wild. FYI : most volunteers are between 18 and 30 years old.

the return
Age: 27
Country: France

It is my second time at Daktari. I went first 7 years ago. When I talked about my experience, I coudn t know if it had been a dream or not, so I decided to come back.
The daily life here is just so amazing. Humans, squirrels, antilopes, dogs freely share the camp.
Teaching to the children makes us understand so much about our lives...
This is kind of holidays we will never forget.
