After a very warm and rainy summer, our lovely Shiloweni found his happiness through the long grass. While he spends his time hiding we try to see him from the top of our perch. When suddenly you see a piece of tail, ear and orange spots, what a joy! Our leopard is still here with us! We would like to refresh his enclosure from its long grass but I think Shiloweni prefers it like it is now. Currently, few big pieces of meat compose his favourite meal, he really love that. Click here to watch him eat.
What else at Daktari?
Here are the results: babies, rehabilitation and happiness of the animals. All of these good news are possible thanks to you. All DAKTARI are very grateful for your support.

Dear supporters, is it really March already?!
The first quarter of the New Year is almost finished and it seems to have gone by in a flash. That's not to say we haven't been super busy at DAKTARI - time flies when you're having fun!
In this report I am going to share a summary of how DAKTARI's educational programme impacted the underpriviledged children in our surrounding villages during 2013.
On Monday of every week, each child was asked the same set of questions in 5 areas of knowledge. On the Friday, after receiveing DAKTARI's educational sylabus, each child was asked the same set of questions again and the scores were recorded.
The percentages shown below are the amount of correct answers given on Mondays and the amount of correct answers given on Fridays - with the percentage increase highlighted.
1. The importance of a good education:
Monday - 81.65% | Friday - 89.30% | Increase - 07.65%
2. The importance of the eco-tourism industry:
Monday - 09.79% | Friday - 45.57% | Increase - 35.78%
3. Awareness of job opportunities:
Monday - 13.76% | Friday - 81.65% | Increase - 67.89%
4. Environmental awareness:
Monday - 26.30% | Friday - 59.02% | Increase - 32.72%
5. Life skills - HIV awareness:
Monday - 18.04% | Friday - 37.31% | Increase - 19.27%
"Thank you Daktari for choosing my child on January 2013. She experienced more things and she is now respecting people and caring for people, animals and trees. I want to give the organisation word of thanks from the mother of Tiisetso Patricia Maanaso of Ramatau High School. I wish you all the best."
We are extremely proud of what we achieved last year and we want you to be proud of the amazing contributions that you made towards our work - for which we are more than grateful.
This year we are already off to a great start and with your continued support, this year will be even better! Don't forget to stay up to date with all our news throughout the year on our website and on facebook.
Many thanks and all the best,
Amy Hulme - Marketing Manager.
We started the new year off with a bang! Our number of learners has noticeably increased and we got great results with the career guidance.
We still go to Ramatau school and to the Oaks village every week to teach some kids about nature conservation. We work at the moment with more than 60 students in the first school and 20 kids in the second one. Your donation has a huge impact on their education and we all know that it is the most powerful weapon to improve the world.
We organized a game-drive in December with 8 learners from Maahlamele. We were very spoiled as we saw more than twenty different species! The kids were delighted and had a really great time in the bush!
In our previous report, we told you that Portia wanted to work as a receptionist. Thanks to our network, we managed to find her a 3-month-placement in a lodge, for her to get more work experience. When we visited her, she was very happy and proud to tell us what she learnt and how great it is to work with tourists in a game reserve!
We are very proud as well to announce to you that Kutullo passed his FGASA assessment. He worked very hard for it. The next step now to become a field guide is his driving license and his PDP. Well done Kutullo!
For more info, don’t forget that you can still follow us on Facebook or on our website.
The Daktari team and the learners will never thank you enough for your support!
