Program Details


Join us for an unforgettable veterinary experience in Chintsa, South Africa!

Weekend destination - Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa

This program has been designed for students who are interested in veterinary medicine to explore a variety of fields: wildlife, large animal, and small animal. Participants gain valuable hands-on experience with African wildlife, practice advanced veterinary skills on large animal species and administer veterinary care to animals in disadvantaged communities.

African Wildlife

Wildlife vets encounter a huge range of species in South Africa. Participants handle a variety of exotic species by participating in game capture, volunteering at the East London Zoo, and handling reptiles at the local sanctuary.

Large Animal

Equine and farm animal medicine are major areas of veterinary medicine; our large animal component was designed from the recommendations and prerequisites of AVMA accredited veterinary institutions. Participants work with a variety of animals in a farm setting and through our community project.

Small Animal

The Eastern Cape is one of the most poverty-stricken areas of South Africa; most of these communities have no access to veterinary care or education about animal welfare. Participants help to treat animals in these communities and teach residents about proper care, handling, and nutrition.
