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

An Unforgettable Amazon Jungle Survival Experience with Edgar Mohena

Welcome to Amazon Jungle Survival Tours, where we invite you to embark on an unforgettable 8-day Amazon Jungle Survival Expedition. Under the expert guidance of jungle survival specialist Edgar Mohena, this extended adventure will immerse you in the rich tapestry of the Tamshiyacu Yanayacu Reserve, a remote and pristine region within the Amazon rainforest.

Imagine the sheer exhilaration of navigating the labyrinthine waterways, the vivid calls of exotic birds echoing through the trees, and the gentle lull of the river as you drift along. This expedition is not just a journey; it’s an opportunity to tap into your primal instincts and embrace the wilderness as your classroom.

You’ll learn to build shelters that protect against the elements, identify sources of drinkable water hidden amidst the lush foliage, and master the versatile machete—an indispensable tool in the jungle. The art of crafting animal traps, constructing rafts for river exploration, and honing your fishing skills will become second nature.

Your ability to kindle fires using the forest’s resources and prepare nourishing meals sourced from the jungle’s bounty will ensure your comfort and survival.

This 8-day expedition is an immersive and transformative experience, offering not only the skills necessary to thrive in the Amazon but also a profound connection to the natural world. It’s a chance to discover the explorer within and to leave the jungle not as a tourist but as a survivor. Join us at Amazon Jungle Survival Tours for an adventure that will test your limits and reveal the wild within.
