Animal Care and Conservation Field Trip
This field trip gives your students the opportunity to gain work experience in both an African animal care and rehabilitation centre and with practical conservation work out in the wild. They will have the chance to work up close with a variety of wildlife, from rhinos and honey badgers to chameleons, that have been injured or orphaned and assist in their daily care.
They will then experience wildlife in its natural environment. The African bush is home to a variety of species, including elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, giraffe, zebra and antelope. They will explore the incredible biodiversity of southern Africa during game drives, bush walks, nights drives and, depending on your bespoke itinerary, a sleep-out under the stars.
Designed to cater for the needs of university, college and school students targeting a career in animal care and husbandry, wildlife management or veterinary nursing, this field trip will give your students a thorough introduction to the diverse wildlife and habitats southern Africa has to offer.
