VetAid Kenya is able to arrange volunteer placements for veterinary students as part of their Extra Mural Studies.
This unique experience will give you:
- A chance to work alongside VetAid vets in the Maasai Mara vaccinating goats, sheep and cattle
- Research opportunities and the chance to benefit from the knowledge and experience of vets working in the field
- Insight into the culture and traditions of the Maasai community
- Amazing wildlife in a setting that few others ever have the privilege to see
- The experience of staying in VetAid Kenya’s tented camp in the extraordinarily beautiful Maasai Mara
We can also arrange for you to spend some time working in some of the challenging townships around Nairobi to provide an experience of another side of veterinary work in Kenya.
We try to organise group visits of 5 to 7 students as a time to keep costs at a reasonable level. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more.
The video below, created by volunteers from the Royal Veterinary College in 2016, gives a good insight into what you can expect.
