Askari is my first volunteer mission and what a joy it was! These four weeks have passed at high speed as I loved all these moments spent along true enthusiasts – Andrew, Katie, Bronwyn and Stuart. The discovery of this beautiful reserve, the search for the wildlife that composes it… I learnt a lot during my stay and leave with my head, eyes and heart full.

Thank you again for your kindness, your teaching and all the good times spent together. Hope to see you again one day!

I always thought it was a cliché when I heard people talk about overseas trips changing their lives – but that is exactly how I feel! My month at Askari has truly been the best month of my life. This trip has solidified my passion for conservation and animals. Immersing myself in the South African bush has been the ultimate escape from city life. I am looking forward to continuing my conservation work back home in New Zealand and also bringing back a new found love of birds! Katie, Bron and Stuart are a wealth of knowledge. Their passion for conservation is infectious and they’re a whole lot of fun too!

We looked for an ethical and respectful reserve and Askari manages wildlife in that sense. Every day was a discovery, every day could be a surprise, you never know what can be seen while out on the reserve. It’s such an adventure!

Katie, Bronwyn, Stuart and Andrew are an amazing team. Passionate and passing on that passion to all the volunteers. I learnt a lot from them about mammals, birds, plants, trees but also about poaching etc. These four weeks at Askari will be unforgettable!

My wife and I attended the program for 4 weeks and had a great time. My highlights were seeing many animals in their natural setting and the opportunity to educate myself along the lines of a better understanding of conservation challenges in SA but also throughout the world. Greater learning gives me more knowledge to make better decisions about what I can do to help. Highly recommended and doing it with a group from New Zealand was an added bonus!

Askari is an amazing place! All the staff have an immense knowledge and are passionate about wilderness conservation. You can’t help but be ignited by it and it makes you feel good that you have contributed in some small way. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and will do anything they can to assist in anything you may need or want to know. Katie, the manager of the Askari Programme is sensational and the cornerstone of creating a family culture that you know you will always belong to. If you have a passion for wilderness and a thirst for knowledge, I can’t recommend this place enough. I can’t wait to come back!
