Head deep into the forest by light aircraft, flying over hundreds of miles of jungle-clad mountains criss-crossed by many rivers and creeks. You will be issued kit and briefed in a local Makushi Amerindian village, where you will practice several survival skills including using a traditional bow and arrow, making a fire from natural materials, and fishing for your dinner. Spend the night sleeping in hammocks high up in the canopy of a giant silk cotton tree, with spectacular views over the river and surrounding forest.
Travelling by helicopters, you will be inserted deeper into the jungle, abseiling down a thick rope from the open heli doors to the floor of the jungle, in true military style, where you will begin your survival training. Within the stunning Pakaraima Mountains, an 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 and thrive here.
