DAKTARI volunteers pay a fee in order to cover the cost of their stay and to contribute to DAKTARI’s programs. Your fee will feed a cheetah, get someone a job, and educate an underprivileged child. It helps us make an impact in the community and provides you with an amazing South African experience!

Prices for 2022

Please note your final volunteer rate will be confirmed by the DAKTARI staff when your booking is confirmed. Prices may vary based on currency values on that day.
