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...

The 2021 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines has been published.

Published annually by NOAH, this book is sent to every veterinary practice in the UK for free. The 2021 edition includes an even larger range of products than previous years.

Chief executive Dawn Howard stated that NOAH will shortly be launching a survey for practices on the Compendiums effectiveness.

She added: "Our survey will give users of the Compendium the opportunity to say how they think we can improve it to assist them in prescribing veterinary medicines and advising animal keepers on their use. We look forward to getting your views."
