We are glad to welcome two new babies at DAKTARI, including our first Big Five!
A few weeks ago, we welcomed a baby sable antelope called Tango given to us by a nearby farm. We took in Tango when he was only 2 days old because his mother could not produce milk to feed him.
We recently welcomed Chimoya, a baby buffalo, given to us by a local farmer. We are taking care of her because her mum rejected her. She is now settled into her new enclosure with Tango, who is very happy to have a new friend!
Our volunteers are doing an amazing job of providing food and care for our two new babies! They are feeding them every few hours, making sure they receive all the attention they need.
When Tango and Chimoya grow enough to go by themselves they will be released in a neighboring reserve where they are free to enjoy the bush.
