“This trip has been absolutely amazing! It went beyond my expectations as well. To be so close to so many animals, actually getting to work on them was the most amazing experience. I learned so much that we don’t get to learn in regular classes. The rangers were phenomenal and the tents were amazing as far as tents go!:) Thank you so much for this experience! I hope to come back next year!”

“A real adventure! Up close and personal with such amazing animals. Most importantly everything appeared to be done in a professional and ethical way with regards to the animals. Great to meet the researchers and others who were also passionate about the animals and environment. An excellent experience”
Rita Lewis, vet from the UK on the Big Cat Safari, May 2009.
“A fantastic trip even better than I anticipated. I learned so much more about the wildlife than a “normal” safari, especially about the Elephants. The 20 hour day was great! The discomfort and cold forgotten now, as for the experiences with the dogs & lions is such a wonderful memory. I feel so lucky to have been able to play a part in hopefully helping their future. Thank you so much”

“Well – what a week! Way above in everything i expected. What touched us most was feeling the passion and love you and William have for your profession, and the the kindness and care you had for us. Thank you so much, we will be back!”
Cissy & Dai Lloyd-Jones, Wales, UK, Vets on the Veterinary Science in Wildlife Management and Conservation, April 2009.
“Thanks Peter, I’ve had a fantastic time. It’s been an amazing experience and I’ve loved seeing all the animals. This has really helped me with the certificate and I can now complete my B module with lots of cases to write about. I will definitely be back, hopefully next year to do the advanced course. I loved the work at De Wildt and it was lovely to be able to see Ukuthula the cheetah we have sponsored. Thank you once again – see you next year”.
Sarah Pellet, Manchester, UK, Vet on Standard Wildlife Immobilisation & Conservation course, January/February 2009.
“Thank you for everything. The course was fantastic. I really loved it. I’ve learnt heaps & met lots of really cool people. I really want to come back and do the advanced course. Hopefully when I come back our cricket team will be back on form:) Good luck everything in the East Cape. I’m totally jealous. Hope to see you again soon”.
Claire Phillips, NSW, AUS, vet student on Standard Wildlife Immobilisation & Conservation course, January/February 2009.
“Dr Brothers is the best course leader I could have asked for. He is extremely fun to be around and teaches the material in a very unique way. Lectures and practicals made it very easy to learn, especially with no wildlife or pharmacology experience. Peter, Becky & Will are wonderful people. I definitely want to come back in the future.
