Small Animal All-Inclusive* Safari Event - 6 Days of Lectures, Practical Sessions & Amazing Wildlife


Nov 15, 2020 to Nov 21, 2020
6:00 AM until 6:30 PM


VetPD has combined an exhilarating week-long safari experience in the Dinokeng Game Reserve, near Johannesburg, South Africa, with a total of 25 hours of safaris, 24 hours of cutting-edge lectures / case discussions and 30 hours of workshops/wetlabs on live dogs and specimens for attendees to choose from. The following internationally renowned speakers will be involved with this event and are aiming their lectures and wetlabs at experienced general and advanced practitioners: Prof. Gilles Dupré (University of Vienna, Austria), Dr. Peter Kronen (Veterinary Anaesthesia Services – International, Switzerland), Prof. Mike Herrtage (University of Cambridge, UK) and Dr. David Senn (Tierklinik Thun, Switzerland).
From Mon – Thu there will be a total of 4-5 hrs per day of sunrise- and sunset safaris and the lectures and practical sessions will be held between 10.15 – 3.30pm. Every day attendees can choose from several streams of highly illustrated lectures (in English) or wetlabs on a wide range of current small animal related topics (see programme for further details).
The 30 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live animals and specimens in small groups, all under the supervision of the specialists.
The evenings will be free for leisurely wining and dining, to meet up with old friends and to make new ones. On Friday there won’t be any lectures or practical sessions, which will allow attendees and their partners/guests to relax at the pool, go fishing or go on a daytrip to explore this beautiful region.
The event fee includes airport transfers, accommodation, all meals (incl. tea/coffee and soft drink), transfers between lodges and the sunrise and sunset safaris from Monday to Friday, extensive event notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to stay in a single room or can share a room with another attendee at a reduced price. Attendees are also welcome to attend the event with a partner/guest (special guest price available). The event fee does not include flights or alcoholic drinks. Rooms are allocated at the discretion of VetPD. Early event registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
