Southern Africa is a fantastic destination of choice for anyone with a passion for animals and their care. We believe there is nowhere better in the world to gain extremely useful skills and animal management experience than in the heart of the African bush.
Our innovative projects will give you hands-on experience in the care of domesticated or rehabilitated animals in need of veterinary assistance in game reserves, sanctuaries and animal shelters. You will have the chance to get up-close-and-personal with some of Africa’s most exquisite animals, while developing a deeper understanding for conservation and animal care.
