My time at Askari was an amazing experience. Every day provided something new and exciting to do. Katie and Joe were an amazing team. Their passion towards conservation, the environment and animal welfare showed through their vast knowledge and time with me. While actively participating in their conservation programme, you will be able to see some of the most beautiful scenery and wildlife. I plan on coming back and would recommend this program to anyone that would like to experience (I think) one of the best wildlife reserves in South Africa.
