The Back to Wilderness Jungle Survival – Core Skills Course – UK
In collaboration with
Jungle Survival Core Skills Course
In collaboration with Bushmasters, Back to Wilderness has designed a Core Skills Preparation weekend in the UK, which complements the Bushmasters Jungle Survival Course in Guyana. It is an optional course, aimed at complete beginners but open to all. With no prerequisite experience needed, learners will gain valuable experience practicing the core skills needed, without any of the pressure.
The weekend is based in the heart of Thetford Forest, East Anglia & begins on the Friday night, finishing on the Sunday afternoon. All key equipment & meals are provided, but you are welcome to bring with you any equipment (if appropriate) you plan to take with you to the jungle – please check first.
The Jungle Survival Core Skills
You will be shown how to:
- Efficiently pack & hang a Hammock & Tarp
- Light a fire using the methods you will use in the jungle
- Safely use & maintain a machete
- Purify water & understand the importance for doing so
- Set traps and snares to acquire your food, as you will in the jungle (these will be for demonstration purposes only)
- Prepare your meals – Game prep and cooking methods (Bird, Mammal, Fish)
- Become Familiar with living from your belt kit
You will be using same equipment used in Guyana, with adjustments to local requirements & laws, materials & weather conditions where necessary.
- Start Friday night at 19:00
- Finish Sunday 13:00
Acquiring & practicing these core skills in advance of the trip to Guyana, will allow you to participate on the Jungle Survival Course with increased confidence & gain more from the whole experience!
This course will be scheduled to run a month or so prior to the Guyana Jungle Survival trips – so it will be fresh in your mind!
