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.

Group Experiences

At Umkhondo you will experience what it’s like to work on, and run a Big-Five game reserve.
Each day brings a new adventure...

We take in five to ten volunteers at a time who work with the farm and wildlife teams where day-to-day tasks vary.

GETTING your hands dirty is part of the job!
