Here’s an exciting opportunity for animal lovers and those thinking of a veterinary career to experience real-life veterinary work. Working alongside trained professionals, volunteers will participate in three main learning areas, including African Wildlife, Agricultural Livestock, and Domestic Animals.
The objectives of the program require volunteers to interact with wildlife in game reserves, farms and small villages, where many animals live in impoverished conditions. Volunteers have the chance to work with rhinos, giraffes, buffalo, lions, antelopes, cows, sheep, chickens, goats, dogs and cats, among others!
As part of this 2-week program, volunteers make a big contribution to the wildlife and animals, while vastly improving their own knowledge of veterinary practices. Working hands-on with the animals is an amazing experience, and unlike anything you could do at home. Learning first-hand from a professional veterinarian, volunteers gain a wealth of knowledge and skills that they can take forward with them into their chosen career!
