For us, life is inconceivable without a campfire. When spirits are high, a fire’s flames provide joyful light; and when spirits are low, the consoling warmth of the embers will thaw the frozen heart.Fire separates us from the animal kingdom. In our modern day life think where we would be if fire was not within our grasp. This is why our first Jungle Survival Certification course is built around the premise of fire and maintaining it throughout the night.


Leave the high-tech, modern world behind as you explore the mountain trails with little more then a knife, tent and fire under the starts to keep you safe and warm!

WARNING: HUNTER GATHERER is the first true Jungle Survival Course and you will earn the “Jungle Survival Certification” that few can ever have. This is NOT your usual camping trip. You will be placed in a Survival Scenario that you’ll act out to the fullest. NOTE:This course is self-catering. You will live on land. However, if you have a weak stomach, you can bring food, preferably raw. We can also bring food for you at an additional cost (P150 perperson).
