August Students – Introduction

Student Programme

HESC offers people between the ages of 18 and 35 years the opportunity to experience the Centre in an intensive and hands-on 21-day programme.

It is divided into three main sections: Participation, Conservation and Sight Seeing.

The main focus of the programme is on the cheetah, and throughout their stay participants are involved in the everyday care of these magnificent animals. This includes cleaning, feeding, and where required, assisting with or observing any veterinary activities that may occur during their stay. These same activities also apply to other species being cared for at the Centre. Click here to read more.
