Review

Spending three weeks at Daktari was a marvellous volunteer experience. The people here (most) are so friendly and kind. I love the staff members, they all have great hearts. It's very interesting because you learn about so many different animals that live in Africa. Caring for the animals is a nice experience as well. Although cleaning the poop out of the cages might turn off some, I really didn't mind it. The stabling was quite easy, and when the kids are here, its really just teaching and watching them do it. The children also make it really interesting. A new group of 8 children come every week, and it's amazing getting to know every single one of them. Teaching them, you understand why they're at Daktari. The education system in SA is very broken, and the kids are fairly uneducated on basic topics. It made me feel amazing, teaching them this important information that will help them so much throughout their life. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who loves kids, animals and nice weather!
