Veterinary Nurse Kim Houghton has launched Wild Inside Adventures, an opportunity to take part in a programme which offers hands-on experience with some very exotic species whilst at the same time helping communities that normally have no access to veterinary care.

Participants travel around South Africa working on game reserves, commercial farms and in poor communities, getting experience of game capture, providing veterinary care in townships and rural areas, working in a private clinic and handling and treating large farm animals.

There are also a range of weekend activities, including kayaking, quad biking, game drives, horse riding, surfing, beach walking, bars and restaurants.

Kim said: “We’ve designed the programme so that it’s suitable for people with a wide range of experience, including veterinary and veterinary nursing students, young people considering a career in the veterinary profession and animal lovers.”
