Raw adventure in the jungle of Guyana
The tropical forests of Guyana remain one of few areas of the world untouched and unexplored by tourists, providing the perfect setting to push the boundaries of your limitations in a simulated survival scenario.
When to go: September – April
- 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 and spend the night in a community eco-lodge
- Using helicopters, you will be inserted deeper into the jungle 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
- Spend the next couple of days on your own or in pairs in a simulated survival situation (staff will be monitoring you throughout). Using just your belt kit, you will put the new skills you have learned into action
- A local rescue team will find you and help you escape the jungle where you will be extracted by helicopters back to civilization
- Visit Kaieteur Falls, where you will have a unique opportunity to abseil down the longest single drop waterfall in the world. You may also get the chance to see the rare cock-of-the-rock bird and tiny golden frogs, each 160 times more potent than cocaine
