As you may or may not know Airbnb has this new thing called Social Impact Experiences. Contrary to normal experiences on Airbnb, we don’t get charged a fee to be on the platform. Instead we get 100% of the payment to cover the cost of the experience and some running costs in our camp. Airbnb is using these Social Impact Experiences to give an extra push to NGOs that try to make a difference.
During your day here you’ll be helping our animal manager and assistant with everything they do. That could be cleaning enclosures, making enrichment or even feeding! One thing you do need to know is that this experience focuses on the animal side of DAKTARI. This means you won’t be teaching the children. But we can assure you that a day here will be a day you’ll never forget :)
We’re honoured to be a part of this platform in the first place, but we really hope that we can get more local volunteers this way. It’s a nice way of spreading the word and also giving a chance to local people to come by that would otherwise never really get the chance so see what DAKTARI really is.
So if you’re ever in Hoedspruit and want to come by to help us for a day, be sure to check out our Social Impact Experience on Airbnb! We’d love to have you.
