Good survival training is essential to the outdoor enthusiast and anyone exposed to the elements whether by choice or accident.
Our survival course trains you in building shelters, finding water, fire making and orientation with or without compass, bush foods and medicines, rope and knot work, first aid, plant, tree and animal identification and much more.
These basic skills have been forgotten with our modern lifestyle. With our course rediscover nature and learn from it again the way mankind did from the dawn of time.
There are many advantages to possessing wilderness survival skills:
- you are less likely to become lost in wilderness areas,
- if lost, you are much more likely to survive,
- knowing the skills and spending time in the bush practicing them gives an enhanced appreciation of nature,
- increase self-confidence from knowing you can take care of yourself and others,
- enjoy the adventure that is nature.
Courses assemble at either Jagerhof Game Lodge or the entrance to the Baviaanskloof. Transfers can also be arranged.
