SURVIVAL TRIPS AVAILABLE ONLY BETWEEN MAY AND JANUARY
The survival of an individual is based on the ability to improvise and interrelate with their environment, apply previously acquired knowledge and use the resources that nature provides to get out of an adverse situation. For this reason, we provide a work plan in order that participants learn and develop such knowledge, to apply them instinctively if required. Participants will gain general knowledge of survival in the jungle, which has been applied by our team of instructors in real survival situations in the amazon jungle.
Our jungle survival trips will take you to the depths of the Peruvian Amazon, where your connection with civilization will be void, and your only companion during your isolation will become nothing more than the endless sounds of wildlife and the complexity of an Amazon jungle full of surprises. Unlike many other jungles in the world, our way of coping and acting with our natural environment will be strictly based on how our Amazonian indigenous people live and survive with the extreme Amazonian jungle that inhabits them, the indigenous ways on how they interact and overcome daily situations around, combining effectively the applications of general concepts and principles of survival.
There will be a huge difference between all our jungle survival trips as briefly described below:
Intro to Amazon Survival will be just a short introduction to Amazon survival, but be advised that, we are not meaning or tagging this intro as a walk in the park type of trip, therefore lets be ready for the awaiting challenges.
Basic Amazon Survival will be based mostly on a first prolonged phase of training and on a second short phase of isolation, compared to our Extreme Amazon Jungle Survival, which will be provided, monitored and in some cases assisted only by participants with previous basic training that they should have obtained prior to an extreme jungle survival trip.
Advanced Amazon Survival will only provide you with a first short phase of refreshing of basic training previously acquired, followed by a prolonged phase of isolation. During this intense trip we will use our very usual style that characterizes us as AMAZON EXPEDITIONERS, we will make it as interesting and demanding as possible, giving each participant or as pairs a few simple directions from landing points to final arrival points, which will immerse everyone into one hell of a challenging Amazon crossing survival expedition, and an experience hard to forget.
HEALTH AND FITNESS:
As you would expect, our Jungle Survival Trips on all levels here in the Amazon Rainforest will be challenging both mentally and physically. So, in order to get the most out of the course, participants should be fit and healthy.
Ask yourself the following question:
Am I Determined?
Can I Hike/Trek for More than an Hour?
Am I a Competent Swimmers
Am I active, and Alertness Enough?
Just keep in mind 2 simple things:
1.- It doesn't matter how trained you think you are or
2.- How Good Your Survival Equipment is.
THE BOTTOM LINE HERE IS, MOST OF WHAT YOU WILL REALLY NEED IN ORDER TO SURVIVE IS:
“A STRONG SURVIVAL MINDSET"
And in case you're thinking you have received sufficient training in other Jungles, well, the Amazon rainforest is very different from the rest!
