The program is based in the middle of the bush. There is no electricity in the camp but we have solar power and Internet for computers. You will live in a family atmosphere and a beautiful area. You must be able to adapt to group life and to be away from the city. 

You will work from Monday until Friday, 8 hours a day, as the Communication and Media Manager; you should be able to organize your hours and be flexible. We are looking for someone who is eager to tell our story to the world, someone who loves to wordsmith, and someone with an eye for graphic design. The marketing manager is the voice of DAKTARI and we are looking for someone excited to take on the challenge of describing our work to a big and variable audience in a fun and engaging way.

Every Saturday, any volunteer can go to town to do shopping, enjoy a lunch in a restaurant or do an excursion. DAKTARI also proposes extra-mural trips as visiting the famous Kruger National Park, the Blyde River Canyon etc.


Actividades de tiempo libre

If you want to go out you can either rent a car and ask fellow volunteers to join you to split the cost or we also have a list of excursions that can be arranged by the Office staff. Please ask the volunteer coordinator, as the DAKTARI cars are not available for personal use.

Interesting things to do in Limpopo Province:

  • Visit Kruger Park. DAKTARI is situated between two gates, Phalaborwa and Orpen. Time to Kruger is about 90 minutes. The entrance fee at the time of writing is ± R220 per day.

  • Moholoholo is a rehabilitation centre roughly an hour from DAKTARI. You can see raptors, honey badgers, cheetahs, lions, wild dogs, a hippo and other animals. The entrance fee is ± R 100 per person. Tours start at 9.30 am and 3 pm that last for 2 1/2 hours. Tours are the only way to visit this facility. It’s not necessary to book ahead.

  • Khamai Reptile Park has snakes, iguana, crocodiles and terrapins.

  • The Blyde River Canyon is also nearby, nestled in the Drakensberg Mountains. There is a panorama route, which takes in the Three Rondavels (mountains that look like huts), waterfalls, great viewpoints and some picturesque villages.

  • White water rafting is available on the Blyde River or on the Olifants River.

  • Other more expensive activities include micro lighting; private game reserve walks/drives, hot air balloon trips and the elephant sanctuary in Hazyview, which is fantastic. 

  • Hoedspruit has shopping, an Internet café, and many bars and restaurants with pool tables.

  • Sundowners (drinks) at “The Leopard Rock” (an outcrop at DAKTARI with great views of the Lowveld and Drakensberg mountains) are another popular evening activity. If you want to go to the “rock”, discuss with Ian and/or Michèle. Obviously this activity takes place after the children have left!

Recogida en el aeropuerto Hoedspruit Airport

Once you have booked your flight to Johannesburg, you have two options to get to Hoedspruit where we will pick you up:

  • Book a flight to Hoedspruit Airport
    • It takes about an hour to get from JHB to Hoedspruit
    • From Hoedspruit Airport it will take about an hour and a half to get to camp

  • Book a shuttle with Safari Link if your international flight arrives early enough (before 6 am) at Johannesburg airport. We have negotiated a special rate for our volunteers per transfer between JHB airport and Hoedspruit Kamogelo Center.
    • This trip takes about 5-6 hours from JHB to Hoedspruit

Alojamiento

You will be accommodated in a chalet or in a private room. The accommodations are based at the project site, on a 600 hectares private game reserve. There is no electricity on the farm but we have solar power. 

The rooms/chalets are basic but very comfortable. We try to give as much privacy as possible to long-term volunteers. Your toilet, room and laundry is done daily and you will have Internet access. The rooms have toilets with either a gas geyser or a “donkey” for hot water. If you have a donkey, a fire will usually be lit for you by 4 pm.

There are animal camps around the camp and you must be prepared to be in contact with them. There are also wild animals in the private game reserve so we do not recommend that you go out for walks.


Comida y bebida

We have employed enough staff to make your stay comfortable so you can focus on your work, however, you are more than welcome to help. On weekends there is usually only one lady working in the kitchen and you will be asked by the volunteer coordinator to help out.

If you have any special requirements, e.g. vegetarian or vegan please speak to your volunteer coordinator or office manager so we can make the necessary arrangements with the kitchen. Food, tea, coffee and juices are included.

OUR STORY: A LOVE STORY THAT BECAME DAKTARI

Ian and Michele Merrifield officially opened DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage in 2006 but it was a long road to make it happen. Ian and Michele met while Ian was working as a game ranger at Tshukudu Game Lodge and Michele was volunteering there as well. While hand-raising injured zebras, wildebeest, and warthogs, Ian and Michele fell in love.

Michele had long dreamed about living in Africa and taking care of the wildlife. When she met Ian, she was able to realise that dream. They left Tshukudu after getting married and opened a restaurant in Hoedspruit to start raising capital for their own wildlife orphanage. While there, Ian and Michele helped raise a local boy from the village named Thabo. He had almost no knowledge or understanding of his native wildlife and environment, so Ian and Michele began using the animals in their care to teach him. Thabo's understanding of conservation was typical of children in Limpopo and the idea of adding a bush school was born.

So where did the name DAKTARI come from? Michele says, "When we were younger, there was a TV program called Daktari. It was about a family in Africa, who looked after and raised many different types of orphaned wild animals. As kids we loved it and we remember getting deeply emotionally attached to the different animals." Sounds familiar right? Michele and Ian adopted the name and so DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage was born.

OUR MISSION

The Mission of DAKTARI is to educate and inspire local children to value their environment and stimulate community development.

Through the combination of the bush school and the wildlife orphanage, DAKTARI has developed an immersive educational experience for local children to learn about the wildlife around them, the environment, anti-poaching, and a wide variety of other issues, right in the middle of the bush. Our work extends into their communities through Eco Clubs at the secondary schools, career guidance for the youth, and community development projects.

The experience was great, lovely people. I like to know all of the stafs, kids, and employees. The experience with the animals is good, but could be better, than just clean it all day. There was not much contact with animals, other cleaning the areas.. for that reason i think could have been better. ..
