Escape from the ordinary and immerse yourself in a month of personal interaction with some of the most charismatic mammals in Africa, brought to you by this team of passionate and experienced wildlife staff. The program allows up-close experiences with wild lions, elephants, buffalo, rhinos, and possibly the rarely occurring leopards, as well as other South African wildlife – all within malaria-free, private game reserves. You can rest assured that you will be able to get to know the unique wildlife of Africa in a safe, controlled and responsible manner.
This course/experience is designed for people either already qualified as vets, or someone that is in the process of becoming a vet (preferably 3rd year or more into veterinary studies) and veterinary nurses. The course is designed to be a hands-on experience where veterinary volunteers will be involved in all facets of wildlife capture and veterinary procedures.
