Brothers Safaris offers tailor-made safaris throughout Southern Africa, specialising in wildlife and wildlife immobilisation and behind-the-scenes participation safaris (African Vet Safaris), but also offering conventional safaris and sightseeing tours - guided or self-drive (Traditional Tours & Safaris), and services to the corporate market.

Currently still working in the wildlife industry as a vet, Dr Brothers offers a unique insight into the world of wildlife, and aims to share this with colleagues and interested people from abroad, educating visitors in an interactive manner on a wide range of aspects pertaining to wildlife in Southern Africa. All aspects, from the most basic knowledge pertaining to a species, to more detailed aspects of wildlife management and Veterinary involvement, are covered in relation to your chosen safari and interests.

Generally African Vet Safaris only cater for small groups, ensuring a well-managed and safe environment, for both man and beast. Within the realm of what is safe, ethical and possible from the wildlife perspective, all safaris can be tailor-made to suit your individual needs.

Participation in an African Vet Safari also ensures a sizeable financial contribution to wildlife conservation, thus directly helping to preserve this precious natural heritage.

Specialist Veterinary Safaris are our more technical safaris, and are aimed at Veterinarians, Vet Nurses/Technicians and Vet Students. Tailor-make an itinerary with Dr Brothers guiding you all the way, or join a "Conservation and Immobilisation Safari", the options are endless.

Immobilisation Safaris incorporate wildlife immobilisations that are carried out for conservation based research or management procedures, on a host of species. Get your hands dirty assisting, or simply watch from up close. Either way, you will have an unforgettable encounter with Africa's wildlife!

Species Specific Interactive Safaris sometimes incorporate immobilisation procedures, but also offer other unusual activities involving your chosen species of wildlife, as well as general game viewing. Work with Vets, researchers and field officers, and gain an insight into the magical world of wildlife. Use telemetry to track your chosen species in the bush, the continuous beep from the tracking collar bringing you slowly closer...

Since the first group of students were admitted in October 1949, the school has seen more than 5,000 veterinary students graduate.

Professor Jeremy Tavare, pro vice-chancellor and executive dean for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, said: "I'm delighted to be celebrating Bristol Veterinary School's 75 years.

"Its excellence in teaching and research has resulted in greater understanding and some real-world changes benefiting the health and welfare of both animals and humans, which is testament to the school's remarkable staff, students and graduates."

RCVS HQ to temporarily relocate

The headquarters of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is to move temporarily, ahead of its permanent relocation later in the year.

From Monday, 26 February 2024, RCVS' temporary headquarters will be at 2 Waterhouse Square, Holborn, London. This is within walking distance of its current rented offices at The Cursitor, Chancery Lane.

RCVS have been based at The Cursitor since February 2022, following the sale of its Westminster premises the previous March.

However, unforeseen circumstances relating to workspace rental company WeWork filing for bankruptcy means The Cursitor will no longer operate as a WeWork space. The new temporary location is still owned by WeWork.

RCVS anticipates that it will move into its permanent location at Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell, later on in the year.
