This is a once in a life time opportunity for the real adventures among us! Can you cope and survive in the Amazon Jungle with nothing more then a pocket knife?

This 2 week trip takes you to the remote, pristine jungles of Guyana, in South America. With one of our instructors and the vast knowledge of two senior, local Amerindian guides you will learn just how comfortable you can make yourself in the jungle with almost nothing.
You will learn how to find water, make traps, hunt with bow and arrow, set a fire without a match or lighter, build a shelter, leave signs for rescuers and if all else fails, find your own way out of the jungle! This is the ultimate adventure travel trip!

This Survival course will take you to the jungles of Amazonia, sat upon some of the oldest geological formations in the world. This is where Sir Walter Raleigh searched for El Dorado, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle dreamt up the stories of “The Lost World.” In some of the most pristine and untouched primary jungle in the world, you will learn how to survive from just what is around you and then you will have the\ chance to put your skills to the test! Initial jungle training and acclimatization will take place in a local Makushi Amerindian village. Here we get you comfortable with the jungle. After just a few days we will move deeper into the jungle by boat or on foot, where we will begin the real fun work of survival training. Within the stunning Pakaraima Mountains,\ covered in jungle and criss-crossed by rivers, the ex UK Special Forces Survival Instructor and local Amerindian hunters from the Makushi tribe will take you through all you will need to know to survive. We concentrate on things that work, not that look fancy. This is the real stuff, the way the Makushi Amerindians have done it for thousands of years.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

You will learn how to find water, make traps, hunt with bow and arrow, set a fire without a match or lighter, build a shelter, leave signs for rescuers and if all else fails, find your own way out of the jungle!
After having gone through these basics comes the reality. For several days on your own or in pairs you will be placed in a simulated survival situation, though our staff will be monitoring you throughout, purely for safety reasons. With just a machete, water bottle and survival kit you have to put into practice the skills you have learnt. There will be survival tasks to complete each day. We call this isolation, where there is not only the practical problems of daily existence to cope with, but also the psychological difficulties of not having those modern luxuries, of being in a strange environment, of little human contact, of lack of sleep………….can you cope?

The Training Phase
In the jungle you will set up your own basha and hammock site - this will be your home for the next week! Then your training begins. We will take you through all the skills you need to find water, make shelter, light a fire and procure food. You will be eating some strange, but very tasty bugs, starting fires without matches or lighters, recognizing water vines, fishing for piranha, stalking wild game with bow & arrow and a whole lot more...

The Isolation Phase
Finally, training time is up and you're put in a true-to-life survival situation. On your own (or in a buddy pair) you'll
find yourself in a new piece of jungle where for the next few days you must do everything yourself. With no more than the clothes you're wearing, your trusty machete, bow & arrow and belt kit, you'll put all your new found skills to the test.
With not even a torch or a match to help you, let alone any other modern gadget, it's now down to your wits and will to survive. Can you cope!?
At the end of your adventure you're back at a community eco-lodge to unwind, swap stories and drink beers with your guides. From there it is back to Georgetown by light aircraft stopping en route at the tallest single drop waterfall in the world, the magnificent Kaieteur Falls.
Viewing the endless jungle canopy from the plane above is a glorious time. For you know, should the unthinkable happen, and you become entrapped within the dense vines and vegetation below, amongst the bullet ants, tarantulas, piranha and jaguars - it's now nothing but a second home to you!
