Shamwari is a well managed and highly ethical wildlife reserve where everyone has a smile and are willing to share their expertise and love for the natural world with you. I highly recommend their conservation programmes for a fun, educational and rewarding adventure. - Marie Misso from Australia

It's the best programme I have ever done. We not only did what was on the website, but much much more. It completely exceeded my expectations. We were given so much freedom and were able to get really hands on. First class experience for a vet student. - Hannah Steel from Australia

If anyone is studying vet med and reading about the project, stop now and sign up! You will have the most amazing experience of your life and learn so much. The staff are amazing and the animals too, honestly you won't want to come home. Working so closely as a group also enables you to develop lifelong friends from all over the world with common interests. - Charlotte Good from the UK

Shamwari Conservation Experience was hands down one of the best fortnights of my life. The vet eco experience gave me opportunities I would never have experienced anywhere else, and the team took the time to get to know each individual on a personal level and to cater to each person's needs. 100% recommend. - Annabel Travers from the UK

I had an amazing time working with the team at Shamwari. It was so beneficial working with Johan and I now have a much better understanding of what wildlife medicine involves. It was a great opportunity to experience this field of vet med as well as learning from game drives and the conservation aspects of a game reserve. The whole stay was great fun and I would highly recommend this programme to all vet students. - Erin Thomson from the UK

By far one of the best experiences I’ve had. Everyone was absolutely lovely and we got so involved in so much. I would recommend this experience to everyone! – Kassandra from Canada

I loved my time here. Every day was different and exciting. I was involved in so many vet activities which were surprises to me. I feel very lucky to be given the opportunities I have been given here and would love to come back again – Angharad from England

An unbelievable 2 weeks spent with the Shamwari staff and wildlife on the Vet Eco programme - an experience that will stay with me for life. A massive thank you to everyone involved and gave me what I wished for and more! – Tomas Homer UK

Weeks later and I still can’t believe how fortunate I am to have been part of the Vet Eco program. The activities and staff, paired with the spontaneity of wildlife, made for a unique two weeks. Take me back! - Emily from Canada
