Askari provides a unique experience for volunteers to become part of the full time management and conservation team on a game reserve in South Africa. It is your chance to make a genuine and hands on contribution to the conservation of both ecosystems and wildlife in this stunning country.

The goal of the reserve is to create a wilderness area which restores this beautiful part of Africa back to its former glory; how it was before the effects of farming, hunting and other human activities. You will assist with varied management projects from alien plant eradication to erosion control and also carry out monitoring and research on the many wildlife species that call the reserve home.

Askari Conservation 10.0

Askari is one of those stand out experiences you never forget. My hopes for the trip were to see the South African mammals and contribute to their management and conservation. Thanks to the Askari team, especially Joe and Katie for making this possible and for sharing a part of their knowledge and skills in such an inspiring way. The longer my stay, the more I saw how fascinating and diverse South Africa’s wild creatures are – not just the mammals! The ferocious, semi-nomadic soldier ants (matabele), the giant nest building hammerkop and the huge, fearsome martial eagle. There is a great range of activities that take place and always something new to learn. The management philosophy at Pidwa respects the resilience and complexity of the reserve ecosystem and aims to protect these values with the least amount of human intervention necessary – it is an amazing place to be.
