It was a life-changing experience for me! The staff is amazing and it's a great privilege to be part of an effort for conservation. Living in a reserve is an amazing experience and it made me review my priorities for the better. It was my first time in Africa, but I felt completely at home at Askari and learnt so much. I can't wait to come back.

From the first day I arrived in South Africa coming to Askari, it felt like home. The staff were very welcoming and the group immediately bonded. It is a privilege to have game drives two or three times a day for a whole month. This gives you time to see rare animals and watch special sightings like cheetah cubs for as long as you wish. Askari is not about checking off the big 5 but being one with nature and taking care of the environment. Both the amazing sightings at wildlife and the work carried out on the reserve contribute to this feeling. If your not just looking for a holiday but wish to make a real difference, Askari is the place to be.

I cant believe 3 months at Askari are already gone. What an amazing time I had I can only thank Katie and Robbie for their great hospitality and making us feel at home. Also thanks to them I have insanely improved my knowledge of the bush. I have already volunteered in other projects and I can assure you this is probably the best. I look forward to coming back again.

What a fabulous programme and made all the better by being able to work alongside Katie and Robbie. These two are absolute stars and really know their stuff.
They have so much passion and energy for what they do it can't help but rub off and leave you feeling a whole lot wiser about Animal conservation.
As a complete rookie and a little apprehensive to begin with we were certainly put at ease and no question was too daft! Our month at Askari flew by and we had a blast learning laughing and experiencing some fantastic sightings that were truly magical.

The workload is fun and very manageable, the food is great and Sth African wine is fantastic!

Don't dilly dally, get yourselves there and be prepared for an adventure!

Askari is a truly amazing place were you will foster a love and passion for conservation. You will be surrounded not only by amazing views, but amazing people. These people, Katie, Robbie, Andrew and everyone else will change you... so be prepared. They will fill your mind with knowledge and wonder, and leave you speechless. They are intelligent beyond belief and caring, but also passionate and dedicated people. IF you have a passion for the environment or even the slightest curiosity and feel like going abroad. Trust me, you will make no mistakes travelling too Askari. IF you are reading this I bet you're interested, and I bet there is something telling you to go. Oh.. yah that's me... GO. I didn't regret it, I bet you won't either. I will never forget this experience, and once you get a little taste, even a glimpse you'll want more. So prepare to go back... at least once or twice.
