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!

The 12 weeks I spent in Askari were awesome! I met great people, learnt a lot about wildlife and how to conserve it and had a lot of fun at the same time! Pidwa and the animals living in the reserve are gorgeous, volunteering there is a real pleasure; everyday is different and you really feel like you're helping making a difference. Ed and Katie are great and very welcoming, they're always happy to share their knowledge about the bush and will make you want to stay longer!

I have had the best experience here at Askari which I will never forget. During my 12 weeks there I learnt so much about the bush and everything that is needed to be done to protect this incredible environment and all the flora and fauna within it. I have really felt that I have made a small difference in this short period of time and that wouldn’t have happened without all the hard work completed by Katie and Ed to make this experience possible. As soon you arrive you already feel like part of this family and this is what allowed me to enjoy my time here as much as I could. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to volunteer and better people to spend 12 weeks with! Well done Katie and Ed, keep up the amazing work and I hope to come back again in the future!

It was the most amazing experience of my life. Fell in love with the bush and Africa. I’ve learned here a lot and become one with nature. It is really fun living with a group so diverse and surrounded by all the animals. I will defenitely come back!

I had been thinking about doing such project for a long time, I am really glad that I picked Askari. I stayed there for 6 weeks and time flew by so fast, I really wish I had stayed longer. Katie and Ed are awesome people, they have so much knowledge but they can also be really fun. The volunteer's house is in the middle of the bush, during your free time there are quite a few things to do in the garden such as having a dip in the pool, playing volleyball, having a nap in the hammock or even admiring the view on the sable station. An electric fence surrounds the house so it is safe to go about your business outside.
A special bond was created with the other volunteers, even after 1 month we still speak to each other everyday and we have planned to meet up in the next few months.
Overall I would definitely recommend Askari, it is a life changing experience. If you hesitate don't, you won't regret it!
