I spent two weeks at Askari and I enjoyed every minute. Katie, Ed, all the staff and volunteers are amazing and this place (Pidwa) is amazing. The sleep out in the reserve, all the laughs we had and taking care of all the animals will always be in my memories. I will miss the Askari’s good vibes for a very long time.

I spent 4 weeks at Askari and it was not enough, I needed more. I didn’t study anything related to wildlife conservation but I’ve always been interested in it so I decided to do this programme for 4 weeks. During my stay in SA I only stayed at Askari, no beaches, no Cape Town, but I would do it again. It was amazing! In the orientation week I’ve learnt a lot about conservation, animal management and then we put that all into practice. You really feel you are helping and doing a lot for maintaining the correct habitat for the animals. Katie an Ed are wonderful people, with them around you always feel good and they will answer all your questions. It really feels like a family. Living at the bush for 4 weeks was amazing. In the middle of the reserve, surrounded by wild animals. It was an awesome experience. I’m coming home with much more knowledge about wilderness and I want to learn more and more. I hope to see you again Katie and Ed, You truly are special people, Thank you!

If there is a small quote which describes my stay in Askari that would be “Volunesia – The moment you forget you’re volunteering to help change lives, because it’s changing yours”. During my stay in Askari I learned a lot of things. Not only about the bush but about people. Askari gave me the opportunity to appreciate the values of respect, hard work and friendship. Specially working for the animals reminds you how small you are and that you have to stay humble. Spending a month in Askari gives you more as a person than the work you can give to the reserve. Working hard is always paid with awesome sightings and great sunsets. If anyone has the opportunity to volunteer in Askari I would totally recommend it. I really look forward to volunteer again.

Feeling like home is the best way to describe my stay at Askari. Askari, it’s been a pleasure to be part of your family. I will always remember all the experiences, the new knowledge and the people in Askari. I never experienced such a high level of happiness before for such a long period of time. My seven weeks here have been amazing. Every morning you wake up not knowing what’s going to happen, but knowing it’s going to be an unforgettable day. We had the opportunity to experience incredible sightings with the team. I learned more than I ever imagined: tracking animals, birding and capturing amazing pictures. Askari, thank you for everything. I will never forget you!
