Our group of Dassie have an amazing time here at DAKTARI, you can see them soaking up the South African sun, getting a nice tan and socialising with each other. Michele the mother of DAKTARI will be seen at 6AM every morning cuddling them under her coat to keep them warm as they struggle to regulate their own temperature. This project is to keep them fed and cared for. We love our Dassies and we want to give you the opportunity to love them too.

It costs DAKTARI a lot to keep the Dassies but we get paid back in love from them. Unfortunately love can not pay the bills. John Lennon never tried to pay for a years supply of Dassie food when he sang "all you need is love". We are looking for support from the GlobalGiving community to help our little friends.


With these donations we can provide food, medical treatment and enrichment through toys and items to keep these guys entertained. We like to provide a balanced diet to keep them healthy and happy.

Long-Term Impact

- We are educating children through DAKTARI Bush School & Orphanage each week, our animals help provide an education through wildlife. - Providing donations for our Dassie will give them a long and fruitful life.
