Pack away your compass and get lost answering the call of the wild the way an ultimate Woodsman would. Hours spent couch bound watching National Geographic survival programmes and doing 'Bear Grylls' of 'Ultimate Survival' impersonations at cocktail parties determining whether your mushroom appetiser is poisonous or not while your spouse roles their eyes; will finally keep you alive.
The Woodsman Survival Training Course offered by Boswa (Bushcraft On Safari Wilderness Adventures) is probably the most extreme survival course offered in Southern Africa. A 'last supper' meal is shared at base-camp after a safety briefing by survival guru's before the sunrise dispatch of unguided survivors with extreme survival training, a fire-starter and that's about all; under their belt.
A work week spent between bush and brush with the distant observation of African wildlife and survival guides monitoring your 'if your life depended on it' decisions, will qualify you as a native on African earth. The strike of your knife will burn dry grass for warmth, the fire warmth will keep you safe from predators, the lullaby of African stars will hush you to sleep, the African soil will be your cradle, the exertion of chasing your own meal will keep you asleep and the unsoftened burn of the African sun will raise you to go in search of water at dawn.
The open space and soul searching conditions will provide with ample material to contemplate the title of your very own Survival Manual as soon as you locate a pen. Your return to base-camp by the cut-off time will exhilarate the adventurer within you and keep the search party at ease. Survive Africa and you can survive anywhere.
