WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN Parents travelling with children would now be requested to provide an unabridged birth certificate (including the fathers and mothers details) of all travelling children.  This applies even when both parents are travelling with their children and it applies to foreigners and South Africans alike. When children are travelling with guardians, these adults are required to produce affidavits from parents proving permission for the children to travel. It is important for parents to note that unabridged birth certificate applications can take anything from six to eight weeks to complete. Following are the new [...]

The knowledge and experience gained during this course should highlight some of the issues [...]

The days preceding the immobilisation allow time for traditional game drives learning about wildlife [...]

As many of you will know there has been a massive increase in poaching of rhino in South Africa over the past 3-4 years. Last year this took a very sad and bizarre twist when several Veterinarians were implicated in being involved in the illicit trade in rhino horn – not necessarily poaching (it is illegal to sell horn derived from dead animals/dehorned animals). Their cases are still pending but needless to say, whether they will be found guilty or not, this was (and still is) very bad publicity for the Veterinary profession. In addition it made the veterinary authorities that [...]
