Tonight at 8pm tune into the new ITV series Safari Vet School.

Filmed and set in one of the world’s toughest vet schools in Amakhala Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, 32 of the UK’s top university students try to learn the skills needed to survive in the bush!

TV vet Steve Leonard mentors the group through their physical and emotional rollercoaster as they face challenges like never before. Working with everything from lions to rhinos, to giraffes and elephants, many have never even seen these exotic species, and none have worked with wild animals before.

The series should make for exciting watching as the first episode follows the young vets pinning down animals barely under sedation, with teeth and claws bigger than the average household pet they must keep their wits about them to stay out of harm’s way.

For more information about Amakhala Game reserve, or planning a safari to South Africa, to see these animals up close and personal, please contact us.

Thanks for reading
