This is a week-long course. A portion of the South African veterinarians CICs fee are subsidized by Wildlife Pharmaceuticals South Africa, in order to promote local veterinary skills in Wildlife Management. This subsidy is not applicable to international participants. Neighboring states (Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe & Mozambique) participants may contact Michelle for the subsidy to be applied, due to economic reasons. All course fees must be paid in advance to confirm your seat. Reservations are based on a first come, first serve basis. R500 surcharge for vegetarians. Vegans need not apply, as our facilities can simply not prepare meals for vegans as the vegan dietary requirements are beyond our abilities. We are remotely located and our suppliers do not stock all the necessary meal replacements a vegan diet would require.
