As mentioned above, you will work Monday until Friday, 8 hours a day, as the Fundraising manager you should be able to organize your hours flexible. Everyday 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


You will be accommodated in a chalet. The accommodations are based on the project site, on a 600 hectares private game reserve. There is no electricity on the farm but we have solar power in the office and in the central camp for the need of the computers, refrigerators, lights, laundry etc.

The rooms/chalets are basic but very comfortable. We try to give as much privacy as possible to long-term volunteers but you might have to share a room with other volunteers. Your laundry is done for you and you will have Internet access at a minimal fee for your private use. The rooms have toilets and shower with hot water.

There are animal’s 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.

Every Monday we welcome a new group of 8 local underprivileged children and 1 youth for a week and give them the opportunity to discover, learn and become passionate about wildlife and conservation, their heritage.
