Askari truly is a magical place. The sights and experiences offered here are second to none complemented by very knowledgeable and friendly staff. The trip of a lifetime awaits you at Askari where magic is everywhere you look. Just be sure not to blink....

You won’t find any experience in South Africa quite like that provided by Askari. You are well taken care of and you will leave with a wealth of knowledge that you will impress the world with whether it’s birds, insects, reptiles or mammals. A whole world awaits you at Askari....

My 4 weeks here at Askari have been the best month of my life. Going to Africa and seeing animals such as lions, elephants and so on has been a “bucket list” dream of mine. Here at Askari I have seen everything, and not only that, I’ve gained appreciation and awe for so many aspects of conservation and bush life. Katie, Robbie, Cas and Andrew all did an amazing job welcoming us and guiding us through experiences I could never have even imagined! The Askari staff are so knowledgeable. I know I’ve only glimpsed a tip of the iceberg yet I’ve gained so much. Their passion is contagious, even after years in the bush, they are still just as excited...

This was my second time to Askari and I would come back 6 more times if I could. The projects we are involved in are once in a lifetime opportunities. Askari is more than game drives and cool sightings. It’s a selfless volunteer project to help the ecosystem. We all leave caring about the trees, ants and with a different perspective. The worst part about Askari is that your second home is 18 hours away!...

This place feels like home with the staff and family vibes. But your backyard is a playground like no other. I came to Askari with no animal, tree or bird knowledge and am amazed that I am leaving being able to pick out almost everything that is running around in the bush! Askari allows you to get hands-on wilderness experience with photos and memories that will last forever. Eternally grateful!...

Spending a month at Askari was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever lived. It was eye opening and it has helped me choose a new career path I wasn’t aware I would enjoy so much. I appreciate and cherish every lecture, story, fun fact I learned during my stay. I’m very grateful....

I had an amazing time at Askari. I have learned a lot during my stay at Askari, not only about wildlife, but also about myself. I’m so glad that I participated in trying to make the Pidwa dream come true. Thank you very very much....

I chose to volunteer at Askari as a fun way to see South Africa again. I do not regret it. Robbie and Katie are extremely knowledgeable and share their knowledge in a fun and interesting way. During my 2 month stay I learned a lot about not only South African wildlife and conservation, but myself as well. It was truly the experience of a lifetime and I made some truly wonderful friends that I will share this experience with forever....

I’ve been here for just two weeks but I’m so happy of the experience that I’ve lived. Getting to know a lot of new knowledge about the wildlife and the importance to keep as “wild” as possible the environment around. The sleep out night and the visit to Kruger Park Were just so beautiful. I have really enjoyed the information the Katie and Robbie Shared with us every time we were looking at some animal or working into the bush, those informations were just so interesting and useful....

I have loved my time at Askari, learnt so many new things, made some amazing friends and seen some unbelievable animal sightings my passion for conservation has just increased tenfold by being here and it is something I won’t ever forget. Also never imagined I’d come away after 2 weeks liking birds so much!...
