If you were lost in the remote, wild jungles of South America with only a wet cigarette lighter and a squashed cereal bar, what would you do? If the answer would be to sit down and cry, then maybe you should consider getting some assistance from a Bushmaster.

Two weeks of in-depth training in Guyana's deepest jungle from a professional instructor and some immensely skilled local Makushi guides will leave you in no doubt as to where to hang your hammock, how to make a fire, which bugs to defend yourself against and which to eat.

The survival necessities of water, food, fire and shelter are all covered in considerable depth, and involve completely unexpected procedures such as drinking water from vines and eating piranhas.

Then comes the shock: being left on your own in an untouched piece of jungle for two days, to see if you can fend for yourself! Good luck...

Bushmasters course.

hey there, I was stationed in Panama for two years, and yes our company did some thing like. It rained for the whole time we were out there and I just went hungy till the three days was done. We did have water with us and idione pills.
