External Link: Official WebsiteThirty-two vet students – the cream of UK universities – are at one of the toughest vet schools in the world. At the Amakhala Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, the students are there to learn valuable wildlife skills. Under the guiding hand of Chief Vet, Dr Will Fowlds, the students will tackle everything from lions to rhinos to giraffes and elephants. For some it’s the first time they’ve seen these exotic beasts and for all of them it’s the first time they’ve had to treat wild animals. From the classroom to the bush is a physical as well as an emotional journey as they face fear, danger and drama and are challenged beyond anything they have experienced before. Presented by vet, Steve Leonard, he acts as guide and mentor as students cope with the tears and terror of being a wildlife vet.
