Educational institutions –  

Askari caters for students following any environmental discipline & with a minimum of 6 persons, a faculty can secure exclusivity of Askari for field trips. Faculty leaders are encouraged to accompany students where possible & would be expected to provide leadership & motivation for their students as well as supervise internal student issues. With prior arrangement, projects can be tailored to suit the discipline of arriving students. Alternatively, the group can partake in all seasonally running Askari projects covering a broad spectrum of conservation & research areas. Certain times of year may be better suited to your faculty than others.  Please enquire.
