    Just back from a great weekend survival course. As well as building shelters and learning to make fire (who knew there were so many ways!) we learnt to purify water and prepare food with nothing but a knife and some tin foil. Great weekend, thanks for your patience and guidance Pete and Damian! Excellent 10/10!

    5 star review  Had a great weekend. Learned so much about using available resources and practical skills you might need in a survivor situation. Making fire, filtering water, preparing food, navigating using the stars, building shelter etc etc. Damian and Pete were both experienced and enthusiastic about teaching us, and were happy to help us and answer questions. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in the outdoors. Very happy Thanks guys.

    5 star review  Just back from a 2 day survival course. Absolutely loved it, the guys at wild survivor just couldn't do enough for us. There was a few total novices within the group (myself included) and the instructors had the patience and know how to teach us all. I would do this again and would recommend to anyone. Even the food we ate was tasty and no one went hungry.

    5 star review  Just back from a great weekend with Wild Survivor, the instructors were excellent and quickly recognised the abilities within the group giving those with no experience more attention and allowing others to try things on their own. Perfect location for a weekend experience, i particularly liked that I was allowed to go off and build my own shelter and fire and sort myself out for the night. Whether you've never been in a field before or like me you're ex forces but not done much for a while these guys can adapt to make your experience well worth while.
