Fancy a £12,000 trip for two to Malawi in south-east Africa? Then enter the competition at the 2016 London Vet Show (LVS).

Delegates to the show at the ExCeL London on 17-18 November need to collect a stamp in their LVS passport from each of the participating sponsors’ stands to be in with a chance of winning the trip, in conjunction with the Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS).

The working holiday begins in the city of Blantyre, where WVS has been working for the past two years on a city wide dog rabies vaccination and sterilisation programme.

Education and conservation

In the first week, the winner will be part of the WVS team working with local vets to continue the organisation’s work. They will also help with the ongoing community education campaign.

The winner will then head north to Liwonde National Park, home to elephants, hippos, crocodiles and antelope. Based at the stunning Mvuu Camp, the winner can choose their daily activities from:

  • game drives
  • boat trips
  • walking safaris

The trip will be topped off by a night in a traditional rural Malawian village, which will include traditional dancing, local food and a night around the camp fire.
