Our Veterinary internships will enhance a passion for treating sick and injured animals while gaining valuable work experience abroad. Volunteers who aren’t particularly focused on a career in veterinary science but do have a passion for general animal care are also usually welcome to participate in veterinary work experience. Participants work alongside trained professionals, observing and shadowing them in an effort to learn from what they do. By doing this, volunteers have the opportunity to learn new and exciting techniques not commonly practiced in their own countries and sometimes teach the local staff a few techniques of their own!. In the facility we have Lions, monkeys, cheetahs, giraffes, Rhino,baboons, Zebras, Buffaloes, Hyenas, and many more animals found in our National Parks.

Role:- Assisting professional vets and staff with routine treatments and caring for animals by helping with feeding, cleaning, maintenance, and behavior observation.
