DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage is a registered non-profit organisation located on the outskirts of the world famous the Kruger Park in South Africa. The mission is to inspire and educate local underprivileged children to care for their environment through the medium of a wildlife orphanage. Every Monday we welcome a new group of 8 local underprivileged children for 5 day 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, 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. The DAKTARI reserve itself is home to a variety of rescued birds, animals and reptiles all of which are used to educate and inspire the children and international volunteers who stay with us.
