Making Your Vision Come to Life


I didn't know what was ahead when I signed my brother and myself up for the 2-day survival course. I quickly realised what a great decision it was! The course boasted many unknowns and a fantastic opportunity to get to know yourself, get back to nature and to learn skills when stripped of all the basics! Highly recommend the course to anyone looking for a challenge and the willingness to push yourself. Thanks again to the 2 Instructors who are full of knowledge and fantastic motivators!

I have spent a number of years watching television programs on survival and collecting items which have been advertised as Survival items. I had never attempted to survive in the outdoors on limited supplies and equipment and was of the opinion that it was not that difficult as task as a result of how it is portrayed on TV. I have now attempted to survive tow days in the outdoors and I have discovered I am a sofa survivalist.

Excellent course complete with a lot of challenges, both mental and physical as well as team work and working in pressured situations. Both instructors were thorough, engaging, encouraging and very helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting to break out of the concrete jungle and into the wild.
