“Thank you for letting me ride in the pick-up with two sleepy although crank Cheetahs! By some miracle, they didn’t wake up (until the next cheetah incident, that is!) I never thought I’d be able to touch a Black Rhino, let alone take its heart/pulse rate rate!! Thank you!

“Well!!! What can I say – not sure where to begin, this has been an amazing opportunity and i feel like have learnt so much but at the same time that I am leaking in so much knowledge and experience. Special thanks to Jandre and Justin who have put up with my craziness with such patience’s & never ending smile. You two are awesome and your knowledge is outstanding. Thanks so much for everything. Also a big thanks to Peter for cramming so much information & detail into such a short period of time, it is very much appreciated. I hope I get the opportunity to work with all of you again in the future it’s been absolutely out of this world.”
