So our trusty Isuzu ‘steeds”, dubbed Patience and Suzie have officially gotten us safely to Zimbabwe for our first book handover tomorrow morning at 09:15. Surprisingly no issues at the boarder or the 18 road blocks we have so far driven through, we have arrived at the University and the day so far has been an awesome one, having been shown around the veterinary faculty, hospital and the town by our very friendly hosts! We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to the Anderson family for their hospitality last night- the delicious braai and amazing travel snacks! 🙂 Tomorrow after the handover we head straight for Zambia for our next stop.
Stay tuned for more updates 😉
Just less than 24hours left before we leave for our much-anticipated trip! Follow our progress on our Facebook page to see where we are and how the project is going 🙂

Welcome to the official Onderstepoort Vet Books for Africa website! This site functions as a platform through which the public can get a better idea on the work this veterinary student run committee does. It also acts as a gathering point at which students from previous trips can talk and maintain communication between the students, universities and other institutions visited.
