Learn how to survive on a tropical desert island.

We specialise in marooning people on stunning uninhabited islands. First, we teach you bushcraft survival skills, before you are cast-away with limited equipment to live out an adventure of a lifetime.

What an experience from start to finish! This is an absolute must for anybody with an interest in travel, exploration and wildlife.

Tell me about the experience

Our expeditions are set over 10 days and made up of groups of 8 likeminded men and women from all over the world looking to challenge themselves.

You start with a night at a boutique hotel, meet your tribe and are briefed on your upcoming adventure. The next morning after a hearty breakfast, our speedboat transports you and the group to your uninhabited island paradise, home for the next 8 nights.

Your first 5 days focused on learning bushcraft survival skills. You will eat well and sleep comfortably in top end Hennessy expedition hammocks. It is effectively survival light, whilst you develop your skills and grow in confidence.

After your training is complete, you are cast-away, marooned to now live out an adventure of a lifetime, applying your new skills and survive with limited equipment finding food from the land and making fire by friction. 

After 72hrs rescue arrives by speed boat laden with treats for your return to the hotel. After the best shower of your life and a marvel at white bed sheets we head out for a 3-course meal and survival celebration and try to put the past 10 days into words.

Do I need to have prior survival experience?

Not at all, our courses are designed for beginners who have never done anything like this before. The 5 day training element is survival light designed to build your confidence and ready you for the final 3 day isolation phase.

Why would I want to be castaway on a desert island?

If you have got this far we think you already know the answer.

Aside from learning some really cool survival skills, a large part of what makes island time special is the opportunity to fully detach ourselves from the modern world. You become immersed in nature whilst being reminded what it is to be a primal human. This disconnection from our lives with no concerns beyond our immediate food needs combined with returning to an unspoiled environment is an enriching and cathartic experience. This leaves many of our castaways with a feeling of empowerment when they return home.

“If you want time to disconnect from the world, look back at what is important in your life and experience nature in its raw form – this is the trip of a lifetime.
