Volunteer with Children and Wild Animals in South Africa
Daktari is a registered non-profit company located in the Limpopo Province of South Africa near the Kruger National Park.
The mission of Daktari is to educate and inspire underprivileged children to care for their environment through the medium of a wildlife orphanage.
Join us for an unforgettable volunteer experience where you will help with the education of children and care of wild animals.
Every Monday we welcome a
new group of 8 to 10 local underprivileged children for a week and give them
the opportunity to discover, learn and become passionate about wildlife and
conservation, their heritage. We also supplement their school curriculum in
English, maths, environmental job opportunities, life skills and social issues.
Our goal is to enable
today’s local underprivileged children to eventually be able to secure good
employment in nature reserves, thereby improving their future quality of life.
While at Daktari, many
children developed a passion for the environment and created wildlife clubs at
their schools. DAKTARI has now developed its OUTREACH programme to support
these groups. DAKTARI OUTREACH mentors these children and guide them in the protection of the environment,
further nature conservation education and in obtaining careers within the
ecotourism industry. By working every week with children in the village, we extend Daktari’s impact to a wider population, and empower the children to
be role models in their community. This is creating a positive impact in the villages and
The children want to make a difference, let’s help them!!! Volunteer at Daktari or Donate. DAKTARI will change your life
