My two weeks flew by so quickly – the days were long but very eventful and fulfilling. The trip was really well organized and I got to do a wide variety of activities on the reserve and when we went out. During my time at Askari I was able to learn a lot about wildlife conservation, do practical work, enjoy the beautiful landscape and animals on the reserve. We had a great sleep out in the African bush and got close to plenty of animals over the 2 weeks. The staff was very kind and friendly, so was everyone else that participated – I had a great time!
