    News from Daktari
    By - Ian and Michele Merrifield - Directors
    Dear Friends of Daktari,  You haven’t heard from us for quite a while. It is because we have been very busy the last 3 months and every single minute was worth it for working hard on Daktari’s goals.  First we had the GlobalGiving Bonus Days Campaign. Thanks to you, Daktari has been able to raise R...

    GlobalGiving Visits Daktari
    By - Jennifer Sigler - GlobalGiving Staff
    I had an opportunity to spend a day and night at Daktari, visiting with Michelle Merrifield and her husband and counterpart Ian.  This was truly an eye-opening experience for me, because I did not grow up with animals in my house.  The closest thing I had to a pet was a goldfish in a tank that my brother, sister,...

    DAKTARI and the local community
    By - Ian and Michele Merrifield - Directors
      The year has been very busy for Daktari. We started the year welcoming the grade 8 children from two local schools. There were no school holidays for Daktari Bush School and we decided to work non stop, even during the soccer world cup event and the building of our new predator camp. We are, and have been, very...

    The children visit Makalali game reserve
    By - Ian and Michele Merrifield - Directors
    We are sure that many of you were very excited to follow the soccer world cup that was held in South Africa. It didn’t perturb Daktari’s work as we are too far from the places where the events took places and no children missed the Daktari Bush School programme. Every Wednesday, the Daktari children are invited by our...

    A great vehicle to transport the children
    By - Ian and Michele Merrifield - Directors
    Dear Supporters, It’s now 5 months that we have been using our Toyota Quantum to carry the underprivileged children from the village to the Bush School. We can’t tell you how much difference it makes in term of safety to have such a car to carry our little students. When fetching the children at the village they are...

    Safety has a price
    By - Ian and Michele Merrifield - A great vehicle to transport the children
    Dear All, You’ve all heard about our urgent need of a vehicle to safely transport the underprivileged children from their home to Daktari. As we couldn’t carry on the project without a safe and legal vehicle to pick up and drop off the children we had to make numerous plans to purchase a vehicle on a loan. This...
