Because some are a bit skeptical about making charitable donations we thought you’d like to hear what others like you have to say.
Where do your wildlife donations go? 100% of your charitable donations online are considered tax deductions and go to help save African animals. Read our reviews from some of our donors, fans and volunteers.
Nikela is about helping people saving wildlife. Not the big organizations, but the little guys and gals who rescue, protect and give so many African animals another chance to live free. They are our heroes. It is our privilege to personally travel to meet each one of them.

It is people like you that enable others like myself to find a home for our modest contributions. I can’t read a story like POACHED! and do nothing.

I donated because I want to help people who are working hard to and directly to save African wildlife…
