Botswana Science and Veterinary Safaris
An exhilarating introduction to Africa's eco tourism market is veterinary and wildlife science safaris -- tourists get a rare and unique hands-on opportunity to become involved in conservation, while having a once in a lifetime experience not normally commercially available! Tourists can participate in wildlife immobilisation procedures, or a species specific interactive safari that takes you behind the scenes look into the world of Veterinary Science and Wildlife Science.
Science and Veterinary Safaris are available at many of Botswana's national and private game and nature reserves
Immobilisation Safaris incorporate wildlife immobilisations that are carried out for conservation based research or management procedures, on a host of species. You can get your hands dirty while assisting the wildlife scientist, researcher or veterinarian, or simply watch the procedures from up close.
As an alternative to immobilisation safaris, you can participate in conservation activities involving your chosen species of wildlife, as well as general game viewing. You can work closely with wildlife Veterinarians, wildlife science researchers, field officers and game rangers. With a scientific safari you can gain an insight into the magical world of wildlife.
For example: you can track lion from the air in a micro-light aircraft, or monitor wild dogs around their den or use telemetry to track your chosen species in the bush, the continuous beep from the tracking collar bringing you slowly closer... an exhilarating adventure that will remain with you for life!
