Jungle survival is 90 per cent positive mindset and if you've got it, it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. It is a true test of your mental stamina. This 2 week trip takes you to the remote, pristine jungles of Guyana, in South America. With a Bushmasters instructor 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.
Before you even reach your remote jungle base camp deep in the rainforest, you will have traveled by light aircraft, 4x4 vehicle and dug out canoe. In between we take a stop a local Amerindian community where we kit you out with specialised jungle gear for the adventure ahead. All this in itself takes a couple of days!
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, recognising water vines, fishing for piranha, stalking wild game with bow and 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 and 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!
