The Wild is our Home

 

What We Are: Our SurvivalZone© Wilderness Academy is a wilderness school and survival academy with headquarters in our 100 sq km private wildlife reserve in the fascinating Northwest of Namibia.

What we offer: Several-day to several-week ranger training, anti-poaching training, and survival training courses, also in combination with a Namibia safari.

Our courses are designed for professional requirements for wilderness guides, anti-poaching rangers as well as for SERE experts, and for people who want to prepare for real emergencies. But also programs which are more "fun orientated" and less "serious" can be customized from us. In addition, we offer those who are looking for a deeper African experience and a very special holiday experience the opportunity to participate in our wildlife reseach and stone age research programs, or to participate in our nature conservation volunteering programs.

Participants: All who have an in-depth interest in the wilderness, living and working in and with the wilderness. Particularly to call are rangers, wilderness and security professionals, hunters, bushcrafter, outdoor and survival sportsmen, martial artists and sport shooters, who find with us a great opportunity to for training, improved qualification and broadening their horizons.

 

Values: Commitment to nature, ecological responsibility, professionalism and compliance with the law are our top priorities.

Philosophy: We live and work in the tradition of hunter-gatherers who lived and survived in our Ondjou Wilderness Reserve thousands of years ago. On the right are the 3500 to 5500 year old petroglyphs of a group of hunters and warriors in a rocky region on Ondjou. - These true masters of survival, be it for food or for the defense of their livelihoods are exemplary for us - and their harmony with the wilderness, although for us now unattainable, an incentive.

Social and Conservation Project - Donate by Participation: Any participant in our training programs may, by request, enable a talented but destitute Namibian to attend the booked training course at the same time, giving him / her a professional perspective in the conservation or wildlife protection sector. - Development aid and the good deed in Africa can not be better and more direct!
