For a genuine survivor expedition, you may choose to go with our Expedition Management Course. You'll trek in a very remote location, relying
on your group's co-operation, communication, and resourcefulness to find your route, set up camp, and procure food and supplies. Whilst improving their communication and leadership skills through team tasks, your employees can gain our unique vocational BTEC Advanced Certificate in Expedition Management (available on 4 week expeditions).
Your activity programme can include bird walks, large mammal and primate spotting, ad-hoc collection of reptiles and sweep netting for
butterflies, as well as lots of opportunities to sight endemic wildlife and big game. Your expedition scientist will explain various survey
methods and techniques so your employees can learn and carry out worthwhile scientific fieldwork.
Your itinerary can include SCUBA dive training to PADI Open Water for all your employees whilst monitoring coral reefs amongst stunning marine life. Dolphins, whales, turtles and many more incredible marine animals can all be sighted above and below the water.
As well as learning about the biodiversity of these unique habitats, employees can also gain an understanding and appreciation of the different cultures of the country. They could conduct an environmental education day at local schools, giving them the chance to interact with school children and sharing their understanding of environmental problems whilst learning more about their lives. These community projects can be completed as an aspect of the expedition: you could be helping on an elephant deterrent project; water catchment construction, or an environmentally themed mural for the village. There will be the opportunity to interact with the local communities and school children through participating in community days and environmental education programmes, or helping to construct local schools, as well as sporting activities such as football games.
Camp life is simple, eating local produce and sleeping under the stars. Base camp conditions are the style of classic ‘survival in the jungle’ living, using tents, tarpaulins and hammocks. There are always plenty of activities to keep your group busy, with briefings and talks on local culture, flora and fauna. Rest and relaxation can also include football games and other sports with local schools.
