Selati is in the Limpopo province of South Africa near to the Kruger Park and the towns of Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa.
Selati has antelope, giraffe, zebras, wildebeest, rhinoceros and much other game roaming free which can be seen driving in and out of Selati and also from your accommodation.
Selati provides an intensive course working alongside a qualified wildlife vet.
Selati uses various local wildlife vets for their veterinary work. Students will shadow the wildlife vet and assist with vaccinations, game relocation, treating animals and anything the vet must do in his day to day work. Students will get a practical darting session from the helicopter and lectures. This is a hands-on project and students are expected to be fit, flexible in their approach and to work hard and maybe long hours.
Students will have a horse safari, game drives and night drives included in their project on a weekend. On the game drives students will see the game that lives on the reserve. Horse riding, whilst provided, are also optional.
Game drives will take place outside working hours around the Game reserve in Selati’s own game drive vehicles. This is all included as part of your project.
This will usually be in the Lodge for breakfast and evening meal.
Lunch will be a packed lunch and taken with you to eat in the daytime.
Laundry will be done several times a week and is included in the cost of your project. Wi-Fi is available in all rooms at no cost.
