Man vs. Wild is everyone’s fantasy, how else does one explain the overwhelming public response to survival movies. Remember Blue Lagoon, Journey to Centre of the Earth, Tarzan of the Jungle, “Mowgli” etc? Here an individual or a group of people need to survive simply on instinct and basic intelligence in a hostile environment or in a situation where you have nothing to bank upon other than your wits and maybe some basic tools. All of us desire to play survival games, where in we are all alone in wilderness and living a basic life amply supplemented by mother nature, just the way our ancestors did a long time back. Going back to basics isn’t too hard really, at least not for seekers of extreme adventure. For the first time in India, Bear Grylls fans can live their fantasy on being one with the wild. We, at Jungle Survival Academy make it happen for you.

Survival – A Mind Game
A frequently asked question on survival is that ‘How important is physical strength for survival in wilderness’? Survival is a mind game, survival in wilderness is all about convincing your mind to not panic, but to stay calm and trust your instincts to bail you out. After all, what does a body need to survive? Water is perhaps the first thing that comes to mind. Our body loses hydration through urine, sweat and even breathing & therefore we need to replace it at regular intervals. The rate of loss of hydration depends on the external conditions like the temperature, humidity coupled with physical exertion. When faced with a survival crises due to any condition like a natural disaster, where one has inadequate means of hydration, the first thing to do is to minimise its loss and then hunt for means to replace it.
Next important thing is to find safety of a shelter. Human Body is not conditioned to survive extreme weather conditions. Unlike animals in the wild, exposure to extreme cold or heat is fatal for our body and living in a shelter is our natural defense mechanism. Should we be in such a situation, the need is to quickly find a survival shelter like, a cave, a rocky overhang, a deep gully or make one from the resources readily available like bushes and leaves. All this activity of finding shelter and water will burn vital calories and one needs to find food to keep the body and soul together.
The good news is that while our body heat and moisture tend to deplete at an alarming rate, storage of body fat however allows us much more time to find food and also there is no shortage of vital replenishment in the nature. Nature is abundant with edible energy rich resources. One may well ask what is the problem then? Simply put, it is lack of knowledge. An important survival skill is to be able to identify where all does Mother Nature store its bounties and that’s where we come in; we at Jungle Survival Academy will teach you to unlock all the secrets of the wilderness. Finding food and water where seemingly nothing exists is a function of understanding nature and being friends with it. Call us and we will teach you how -You can do it! We at Jungle Survival Academy will make nature your best friend for life.Unlocking Secrets of Nature
Fire as a survival tool
Fire is not a direct survival need but an important survival tool. It provides us heat, light and security. Many food resources, available in wild, need to be cooked or boiled before they can be consumed. Boiling water is the safest way to make it consumable. A well lit fire also keeps the wild animals away. If you are caught in a survival situation chances are you won’t be caught with a box of matches or a lighter within reach, so how do you light that much needed fire? Hence reliable all weather fire-making skills are invaluable for survival.
TIn today’s urbanized technology dependent world, navigation is not given a second thought. Getting lost in wild without any external aids can be a terrifying prospect. Navigation skills are essential to reach out to safety and hence, age old techniques of navigation by stars at night and similar natural aids during day are absolutely vital survival skills.Survival skills separate men from boys
Natural Disasters and Survival Skills
It would be limiting to say that survival skills are needed to survive in wilderness alone. In fact in today’s tech savvy world, true wilderness is hard to find. Natural disasters, in fact are a greater threat and to survive one, it is the survival skills that will save your skin and enable you to save others. Earthquake, fire, floods, terrorism, crash in remote areas etc can create a disaster like situations without warning and with paralysing suddenness. In such a situation what will separate the helpers from those being helped is the knowledge of survival skills.
