COVID Restrictions have been lifted in South Africa


Even if the COVID is not yet gone, the recent numbers have encouraged the government to lift the last restrictions that were put in place in March 2020.

Face masks are no longer needed and you can enter the country without any test or vaccination proof.

To celebrate, we decided to offer you a special 25% discount for any volunteer booking from the 23rd of July to the 3rd of September 2022!

Come and join the team of volunteers now!

Our Results for this First Half of the Year

Group Picture

The beginning of the year was a bit tough, we had no volunteers so no children, but from late February on, we have been working hard to educate local children about the environment.

So far, we are very proud to have welcomed 136 students from Lepono, Maatla, and Maahlamele schools.

At the beginning of the children’s stay at DAKTARI, they each fill in a general survey that works as a level indicator. The questions are based on crucial points of their education that they may or may not have learnt in school or in life, as of yet. It is also used as a progression sheet throughout their week, as they are asked to fill out the same questions at the end of their stay. DAKTARI also uses this survey as an indicator as to what might need to be improved on their program.

The project has so far remarked an extensive progression in all subjects, between the beginning and end of the week.

DAKTARI has started on NFTs


Example of our NFTs

For one month, we have been in contact with Maxitio.io, an NFT (Non Fungible Token) marketplace for Non-Profit Organisation. Maxity helps projects like DAKTARI to sell NFTs to raise more funds.

This new trend of NFTs is still uncertain but it seems to work for now. We have been selling pictures of our animals and life at the camp to people in the cryptocurrency world.
Thank you to those who bought one!
