As a student you can expect to participate in different styles of capture with a specialised veterinarian and capture team, whilst working with different species of antelope and other Southern African animals. You will have a Safari4u staff member with you at all times to guide you through the process and answer any questions you might have during your stay.
You will work hands-on with these animals helping with their immediate handling as well as treating the individuals with appropriate medications and monitoring them during their recovery period prior to transportation. You will also visit the release sites of the animals in most cases as well.
Please note that this programme involves not only the captures themselves but also the preparation for captures and as such the work can be physically demanding so a medium level of fitness is required and everyone will be required to dig in and help as much as possible!
