Daktari Productions takes its name and inspiration from the remarkable and extraordinary life spanning sixty years in Africa of Sue Hart – the original Daktari. The word “Daktari” comes from a very old African language, Swahili; it means doctor, in its broadest sense: a “healer”. Sue was honoured with the name “Daktari” when she was working as a wildlife vet in east Africa during the sixties and early seventies and was the inspiration for the very popular classic MGM TV series, “Daktari” produced by Ivan Tors.

Daktari Productions is developing media programming and publishing based on “Daktari Sue’s” life, her experiences based on real adventures and original stories. A story waiting to be told!
