Desert Island Survival by Niquesa Travel

Cast away on a remote paradise, where nature still exists in its wild and natural form, untouched by man or machine. Leave the relentlessness of the modern world behind and awaken primal instincts on a desert island survival quest, armed with nothing but Mother Nature’s abundant resources. Accompanied by an experienced expedition leader, a speedboat will whisk guests across virgin waters to a remote corner of the world, to be marooned on a pristine island. Learn how to utilise nature’s materials to navigate, hunt, cook and build. Use spears, rods and nets to catch fresh fish. Create fire with friction and forage for food in the jungle. After an initial skill development phase, the expedition leader will leave guests alone to camp, relax or explore in blissful isolation. On the final day, a rescue crew will appear to return guests to the laps of luxury. Celebrate with some chilled champagne, a magnificent beach feast and a genuine sense of achievement. Niquesa Travel offers this experience from £5,000 per person.
