Sobre o programa

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.

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!

Sobre o projecto

Fronteering arranges volunteering programs related to wildlife and indigenous people in less visited places of this world as well as more unique destinations.

Conheça seu anfitrião

Fronteering arranges volunteering programs in some of the last frontiers of this world as well as more unique locations that other organizations ignore. From Field research programs in the Far north of Canada and Husky ranches in the Canadian Arctic to Amerindian community programs and wildlife conservation in the Amazon Rainforest and everything in between.

Most of our programs Focus on either wildlife rehabilitation and release, wildlife conservation & research or involve local indigenous communities.

Fronteering currently offers programs in Canada, Guyana, USA, Australia, Brazil, Borneo, South Africa, Madagascar and Panama.

True good causes: FRONTEERINGS volunteer abroad projects are either existing local projects or projects that are build from the group up by FRONTEERING. What these projects have in common is that you will be supporting a true good cause! You will have the opportunity to help where the need is the greatest. Our projects focus on helping the local communities, wildlife, indigenous people and the environment in cooperation with the local/indigenous communities. We focus on true volunteer projects where your effort really makes a difference. That’s why through Fronteering you will rehabilitate injured & orphaned wildlife with the goal to release the animal. That is the reason why will not send you to some far southern country to cuddle with tame lions & tigers with any real purpose. If you want to volunteer abroad with a real purpose, contact us!

Safety: At FRONTEERING we do our outmost best to provide the safety measures needed for our Volunteer Abroad projects and Adventure Travel Trips. However due to the fact that many of our projects and trips involve wild animals and/or are in remote locations there is a small element of risk involved. Not all of our projects and trips are for the faint at heart however we do cater to those of all walks of life. If you are not too sure about the suitability of a Volunteer Abroad project or an Adventure Travel trip then feel free to ask as we are always ready to answer any questions or discuss any doubts that come to mind. For more information please check our Safety & In-country Support section before you volunteer abroad.

A real adventure: We do not want our volunteers to end up trying to safe or clean up some small patch of rainforest which in some places they might call a wilderness. Instead you will volunteer in the immense jungle of the Amazon rainforest or venture in to the vast Canadian wilderness! Our volunteer abroad projects are situated in the remote areas of the world and we focus on countries and regions with the lowest population densities. We at FRONTEERING focus on what works; from sleeping in the jungle underneath the stars with nothing more than your own private hammock to back-to-basic cabins in the northern tundra with a cozy smothering fireplace and no electricity! When you volunteer abroad with FRONTEERING you can be sure it will be adventure.

Off the beaten path: With FRONTEERING volunteer abroad projects you will venture to places less visited. We focus on places that are fairly undiscovered where the nature, wildlife and indigenous cultures are still common. You will have the great opportunity to see these amazing places while they are still unspoiled and pure. It is these places where there is the most to lose but even more to gain through successful conservation work and sustainable tourism. 

Community involvement: Foremost when volunteering abroad the well being of the community should come first. For all of our trips we use local guides, local transportation and local communities so that through sustainable tourism we can help to protect the environment, wildlife and sustain the way of life of indigenous cultures & communities. More and more and governments choose the long term benefit of sustainable tourism over the short term gain of mining and logging. A good example is Gabon which in 2002 after recommendations from environmental researchers set up 13 new national parks. The government of Guyana is currently considering protecting its entire rainforest region which still covers 80% of the country. Hopefully through our combined effort this dream will one day become true.

Mission
FRONTEERING specializes in organizing volunteer abroad projects to preserve the environment, wildlife and indigenous people throughout the world while giving the volunteers a real and raw experience in some of the most beautiful and often remote places in the world to make a true difference.

Vision
FRONTEERING strives to provide real off the beaten path volunteer abroad experiences worldwide that satisfy the need for volunteer projects that truly makes a difference for the environment, wildlife and indigenous people.

Going abroad and in particular volunteering was something I always regretted not doing when I was younger.
