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.

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.
