It was a special honour to be able to experience Askari even if only for a brief slice of time. Two weeks isn’t long enough….
The thing that stands out most, aside from seeing some of the coolest creatures I have seen in my life, is the people: passionate and knowledgeable staff/guides and volunteers from all over the world who have come for the same reason – to experience the South African bush but more than that, to contribute to the restoration and conservation of it. That is what sets Askari apart from anything else I have done. That is what gives travel here a deeper significance. And the fact that we have over 17,000 hectares of wild space to ourselves is the best! There are no tourist crowds. No other game viewers full of people driving the same roads, blocking views…It is just us (whilst we are here) to appreciate, enjoy and help conserve. Wide open natural spaces full of serene beauty and magnificent creatures from the tiny termites with their monstrous mounds to the majestic lions and everything in between. And the deep red sunsets and sunrises are pretty spectacular too.
I love that anything can happen at any time and indeed it often does! You have to be ready and prepared or else you’ll miss it. Hope I can return someday…

Amazing to be part of such a wonderful group and programme. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The level of enthusiasm is unbeatable. Askari has been the most amazing trip and I have learnt so much. They really teach and show the importance of conservation. I am super excited knowing I’ll return next year. It was so incredible that I couldn’t leave without knowing when I would return. Katie and Ed – you guys are just incredible and I feel privileged to have spent time with you both, thank you for everything!"

the eight weeks who I was at Askari were awesome!!!
you live in a beautiful setting surrounded by nature.
when I arrived at Askari you immediately feel that you are part of a large Askari family.
What makes it very easy to make new friends.
in my time at Askari have I learned a lot about wildlife, conservation and the African bush. the great thing is that no day is the same. you can see wildlife at any time of the day. the most fun of my time at Askari I found the release of wild animals such as the Pangolin, impala, buffalo, zebra, and the wildebeest.
Finally, I would like to thank Ed and Katie for the great time who I've had at Askari and the warm welcome at Askari

Askari is the best programme I could imagine. This is one of the few programmes what really include the whole animal kingdom. Not only driving around, but it is all about helping the animals and with this helping the environment. The guides teach you how everything is linked up with each other and that link is needed in the chain to make it work from the start of the food chain to the end. If you want to learn about real nature then you are at the right place here at Askari.

When I first arrived at Askari I was a little bit afraid and wondering if everything was going to work out, but when I got to know the people and the work that is being done at Askari I can safely say that it has been the best time I have ever had!
