Fantastic Experience!!!

This has been a life-changing experience. From the students, to the staff, to the lodging and the leadership, everything has been fantastic. I can't think of a better way to experience the culture and nature of South Africa. The volunteers are amazing. Young or old, individuals with a spirit to serve and experience adventure will feel right at home. You don't need to be a teacher. One week or six months, Daktari provides an experience that will make you a better person. You only need a desire to make a difference. ABSOLUTELY worth the trip.

Pros
  • Great volunteer peers
  • Experiencing the local culture
  • The animals of South Africa!
Cons
  • Not long enough
  • Need more time to explore the community
  • Program needs more exposure. This is a must-do!

Thank you so much, DAKTARI

I spent two weeks at DAKTARI that I will never forget. My dream for 7 years was to become a volunteer to help other people und animals. Here in DAKTARI I could live this dream. It was always funny with the kids, the animals and the other volunteers and I always enjoyed this time. The excursions in the Kruger National Park and in the Oaks were incredible. I didn't expect that I will gain so many and wonderful experiences in only two weeks. The other volunteers and all the other people were always very kind. Everything was clean and I felt always comfortable. My entire stay was below my expectations. I can recommend DAKTARI to everyone who loves children, animals and wants to do something good.
