News letter June 2018

Check out what happened in February!

Our new babies Barney, George and Monty

When a neighbouring farm found a baby klipspringer all alone, they brought him to us. He quickly stole all of our hearts and we named him Barney. He loves running around his enclosure and jumping on the rocks.

Besides Barney we are also raising Monty, a little banded mongoose who was found exploring the world on his own. We took Monty in after the people who found him managed to catch him. He's a little bandit who loves playing with all of the volunteers.

The third baby we have been taking care of is George, a baby squirrel that fell off the roof. He is still very small and we feed him every few hours. Most of his time is spent eating and sleeping, but he's slowly starting to climb around now.

The children help us with raising these babies as much as possible because it shows them that animals are important. It teaches them that we should take care of animals in need and the environment they live in.


Kitchen update

Work has started on our kitchen renovation and a lot of progress has already been made! The workers arrived at the beginning of February and they are working very fast.

As the month is coming to an end, our kitchen is almost brand new. First, the cement was poured for the floor and then the workers started on the new walls. They are currently breaking down all of the original walls so we can slowly start to see how big our new kitchen will actually be. So cool!

Once again we would like to thank all of our sponsors for making this kitchen renovation possible:

▪ Hirsch's
▪ Sephaku cement
▪ Stonebuilt
▪ Buco
▪ Electrolux
▪ Italtile and CTM Hazyview
▪ Transtech Africa Global
▪ Macsteel
▪ and of course everyone who donated on GlobalGiving!

Give Pretty your vote

Pretty the porcupine

Pretty, our office manager, took part in news24's Anthem Project with her beautiful version of the national anthem. If she gets enough votes, she could win funds to support DAKTARI. You can check out her anthem from the bush here and be sure to give her your vote. There's no limit on how many times you can vote, so feel free to tell your friends to do so, too!


A big thank you to Bushbaby River Lodge

Bushbaby River Lodge received the title of best 4 star B&B in 2017 and 2018 and has helped us a lot in the past. It is the perfect place to go and explore Blyde River Canyon or the Kruger Park because it is situated in the beautiful Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate. Thank you Bushbaby River Lodge for all of your support!
