 All you know is what ever it is, you will be taking part as an active member of the team, be it chopping down trees that elephants have pushed into the road, or carrying a darted cheetah then standing on the back of a car which is the operating table 

I turned up to Askari slightly unaware of what I was going to be doing and to begin with it seemed daunting! However as soon as we began I was in love with the place and the work they do. All the staff were friendly and happy to answer questions and give you information. Not to mention the great house you stay in and the awesome food!

I have been amazed by many of the sightings we have had and you never know what is going to happen next! All you know is what ever it is, you will be taking part as an active member of the team, be it chopping down trees that elephants have pushed into the road, or carrying a darted cheetah then standing on the back of a car which is the operating table! I would recommend this trip to anyone and have loved every minute of it.
