4-Day Jungle Survival Skills Training Program in the Amazon Rainforest, Peru

Embark on the Ultimate Amazon Jungle Survival Adventure with Edgar Mohena

Are you ready to test your mettle in the heart of the Amazon rainforest? Welcome to Amazon Jungle Survival Tours, where adventure and education blend seamlessly under the expert guidance of Edgar Mohena, a seasoned jungle survival specialist. Located in the vibrant city of Iquitos, Peru, our immersive 4-day Jungle Survival Experience promises a journey like no other.

Imagine yourself deep in the lush, untamed wilderness of the Tamshiyacu Yanayacu Reserve, surrounded by the symphony of the rainforest. This is where you’ll unlock the secrets of survival, harnessing skills that have been passed down through generations.

Over four intense and exhilarating days, you’ll learn to build shelters that protect against the elements, find drinkable water sources hidden in the forest’s bounty, and master the art of using a machete—a tool as vital as it is versatile. You’ll discover the art of crafting animal traps, fashioning rafts to navigate the winding waterways, and honing your fishing skills to secure your sustenance.

But survival isn’t just about physical prowess. You’ll delve into the ancient wisdom of starting fires and preparing food in the heart of the world’s largest tropical rainforest. Edgar Mohena, with his wealth of experience and in-depth knowledge, will guide you every step of the way.

Are you prepared to step out of your comfort zone and into a world where self-reliance is key? Join us for a transformative adventure that will leave you not only with a sense of accomplishment but a profound connection to the wild. This is your chance to experience the Amazon like never before—raw, challenging, and utterly unforgettable.
