The Bushmasters Jungle Survival Course – Guyana
Jungle Survival $2,600 USD ~ £2020 GBP – payable to Bushmasters
This two-week Jungle Survival trip with Bushmasters takes you to the remote, pristine jungles of Guyana, in South America. With a Bushmasters Ex British Special Forces 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 to help you survive.
This is the most demanding and true to life jungle survival course you will find anywhere. It is deep in pristine amazon jungle in a truly awesome setting. Your only neighbours are the likes of monkeys, anaconda, caiman, and jaguar!
The Jungle Survival Experience
The Training Phase
In the jungle you will set up your own hammock camp; this will be your home for the next week! Then your training begins. You will be guided & shown all the skills you need to find water, make shelter, light a fire and procure food.
You will be eating some strange and tasty bugs, starting fires without matches or lighters, recognising 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 jungle 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.
It won’t be easy. 30% of people pull out of the jungle survival course, so with not even a torch or a match to help you, let alone any other modern gadgets, it’ll be down to your wits and will to survive. Think you could cope!?
