Are you a vet student and in search of project to further gain some experience? Then your search is over as we have the right opportunity for you! Apply now and be part of our amazing vet program done at a wildlife conservation project based in Namibia!

 

This program is designed for volunteers studying or wanting to study as veterinarians or vet nurses/technicians. The program will be overseen by a registered vet residing in Gobabis and will encompass all aspects of wildlife veterinary care and treatment should the need arise. The care of injured or sick animals will be the responsibility of the vet volunteer as primary caretaker. It is important to note that the volunteer will also partake in the wildlife program should time allow. You will be able to engage with a diverse range of animal species, from warthogs to meerkats, cheetahs and impala while being immersed in the life of a working animal sanctuary in the heart of the Kalahari. You will find yourself putting hard-won skills to work in a unique environment whilst enjoying a true working holiday experience.

Volunteers will be required to commit to a minimum of 2 weeks! The work with the wildlife at the project is physically demanding, yet very rewarding. Come be a part of something worthwhile!

Dagelijkse activiteiten

As a volunteer/intern you’ll be gaining lots of experience through your daily tasks and this will include:

  • Wildlife diagnostics and treatment.
  • Feeding Big Carnivores and Animal Walks.
  • Part of darting team regarding animal releases, treatment or biological check- ups.
  • Retrieving blood samples for analysis or DNA testing.
  • Back – up for research projects.
  • Periodical de- worming, de-ticking and treatment for parasites.
  • Treatment of injured and sick animals

Medical & health

 

You are responsible to ensure you have adequate health insurance along with any necessary vaccinations needed for your trip. Please seek advice from your local doctor or travel clinic for any requirements. The project has an on-site clinic stocked with extensive first-aid supplies, as well as other basic necessities such as antibiotics etc. They recently installed a defibrillator and a nebulizer. Volunteer Coordinators and other staff are trained in First Aid and CPR. There is a hospital with full facilities just one hour away. There are also physicians available in town for less urgent concerns. Should a volunteer require a visit to the doctor for any reason, the project can coordinate transport for that volunteer into town to obtain care. We urge volunteers to please inform us of any medical information/condition they might have such as: allergies, prescribed medication and any known medical conditions.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

There may not be much time for any leisure time activity. The volunteers work every day, because the animals need feeding and caretaking every day, this means 8-9 hours per day. But Saturdays and Sunday are a bit slower and on Sundays there are no activities besides feeding. That way the volunteers can get some time to rest and recharge. Any activities you'd like to do such as hiking, sightseeing, etc. we recommend doing so before or after completing the project.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Hosea Kutako International Airport

The programs start on a Friday and end on a Thursday. If you are flying into Namibia, please arrange for a flight to Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek. As our transport leaves very early Friday morning, we ask volunteers to arrive in Windhoek on the Thursday. You are responsible for arranging your own accommodation for that night. The project’s shuttle bus will pick you up at your accommodation establishment strictly at 09h00. Please remain at your accommodation establishment. Please ensure that we have received the necessary information about your pick-up spot at least 2 weeks prior to your arrival in Namibia.

Accomodatie

Volunteers will be placed in the project’s volunteer village. There are several wooden cabins, communal showers, toilet facilities, and a bar/eating area where you will have all your meals. There is also a small swimming pool. You will share a cabin with up to three other volunteers of the same gender. Bed linen is provided as well as a towel. You will have a shelving unit for your clothes and other stuff. Toilet and showering facilities are located in the middle of the cabin area.

Guesthouse
Eten & Drank

You will receive three meals per day which include breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meals are generally basic but tasty and filling. Breakfast can be porridge, cereal, eggs or pancakes. Common dishes for lunch and dinner include burgers, goulash, pasta with meat sauces, rice, sauce and potatoes. Namibia is a meat-eating country and this you will notice as many of your meals will contain meat. However, we can accommodate vegetarians, as well as other dietary requirements. We have experience catering for lactose-free and gluten-free diets, as well as for other intolerances. Please be aware though that the project is located in a relatively remote part of Namibia. If you have extensive dietary requirements, please coordinate with us in advance to ensure that we are prepared for your arrival and we are aware

of exactly what you require.

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) in Windhoek. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Namibië.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Namibië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Namibië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Namibië.

Gegevens over jouw aankomst

The project prefers applicants starting on Fridays so they would need volunteers to arrive a day before as pick ups are done early Friday morning, do keep in mind that we would not be arranging your stay for the night in Windhoek. The airport that volunteers would need to fly to is in Namibia, Windhoek. The airport is called Hosea Kutako. We will arrange pickup and drop off from the airport or from the accommodation in Windhoek to the project. Contact us for recommendations!
