Frequently Asked Questions
What do I bring?
These tours have been designed to cater for your basic needs. Sleeping arrangements including a swag, and sleeping bag will be provided. All basic cooking equipment will also be provided. Toiletries will be purchased before we undertake our departure into the wilderness.
You will be expected to bring comfortable clothing, including two/three pairs of change clothes, running shoes and a form of sun protection, long skivvy or hat. You will also need to bring a backpack, to pack any additional items including a water bottle, GPS, phone, medication, or preferred toiletries.
Should I bring first aid?
Basic first aid equipment will be provided. If there are any additional needs that cannot be met by basic first aid such as insulin injections or other medications you must mention this on the health screening application form.
Are we taking food?
Yes. All tours will require pre-purchased food of your choice; this has been budgeted into the tour expense. Common foods which are light weight and practical to carry include, pre-packaged dry foods such as noodles, nuts, muesli bars, protein bars, and other light weight carbohydrates.
Our protein will be acquired from the wild, this may include boar, wild goat, fish, and other wild meat products which we may need to hunt down.
How can I prepare for the tour?
Depending on the tour you are undertaking will ultimately depend on what is physically required from you. The Aboriginal survival tour is by far the most challenging and requires 4 weeks of prior fitness training before you can adjoin the group.
Other tours are based around your physical capabilities, most clients prefer to watch my undertakings of chasing and capturing animals at a distance, other clients may prefer to be up close and in the action, ultimately that is your decision.
What are the risk aspects of the tour?
The greatest risk feature of the tour is dehydration. With all tours we take ample water supplies and are generally based on water features (Stream/River), I will constantly remind you to keep hydrating.
First and foremost your safety is my responsibility. If I have any doubt in a situation which may un-fold, you must listen carefully to any instructions you may need to follow.
Do I have to partake in killing an animal?
No. An aspect of the tour is the reality of survival; this involves acquiring meat products from the wild. If you are uncomfortable with the process of utilising an animal for consumption, we can organise other arrangements of consumption which are fitting for you.
Can I film the experience?
This is a key part of the experience; the operator will take the responsibility of filming aspects of your journey into the wilderness. As a result of some activity sensitivities clients can only take still photos.
However aspects of the tour will be recorded by the operator including all of the learning factors.
