Accompanied throughout the safari by a South African wildlife veterinarian, this hands-on African Vet Safari gives guests the chance to learn more about Africa’s wildlife in a unique way, incorporating modern day conservation and the need for hands-on wildlife management. This safari takes guests behind the scenes, affording the opportunity to interact with wildlife vets, researchers and guides, while discovering the fantastic world of wildlife in Southern Africa.
Safari participants will be a part of a procedure where an elephant is knocked down and fit with a satellite collar. This incredible procedure is one that very few get experience. In addition, at least five rhino procedures are scheduled along with Sable antelopes.
Participate in hands-on wildlife veterinary management procedures and in so doing contribute financially to wildlife conservation through your participation. During this safari you will work with antelope, the iconic endangered rhino, and African predators, under the watchful eye of your wildlife veterinarian. The safari starts with an overnight stop in Johannesburg to facilitate arrivals, and then heads into the wild for more traditional wildlife viewing activities, making sure that first time visitors don’t miss out, before heading to a third venue where we will participate in wildlife management procedures on the reserve.
