Welcome to Survivor Island, not your typical adventure. The concept of Survivor Island is to journey into your psychology, your mental toughness by abandoning you on a deserted island and requiring you to make do with what that island has to offer. You will go nowhere (so no point A to point B journey) as you will be stuck on the island. There will be no shelter, no water, no equipment to catch anything. For you to acquire these things, you will need to innovate, create and work together as a team.
That’s right, there will be another 5 Survivors on the island, all of them in the same situation as you. Which adds another dimension to the adventure. Together, you will have to build shelter, gather water and food and live together on a small isolated island for over a week.
You will be hot and you will be cold. You will be hungry and thirsty. You will be exposed to the elements and to other people. This is a raw experience, one that will strip you of all your creature comforts and force you to step out of your comfort zone.
Survivor Island is not for everyone. It is not for those that want an idealic island paradise getaway (though the island is beautiful). It is not for those that want a holiday. It is for those that want to see how they would react in a disaster situation, those that want to see how far their minds and bodies can be pushed.
Survivor Island Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival Tonga
Arrive in Tonga and transfer to speed boat for an off shore island resort. There you will be briefed on what is about to happen. You will have a chance to relax and eat and acclimatise.
Day 2: Tonga (B,L,D)
Day to explore the region and islands and acclimatise.
Day 3 – 10 : Tonga – Survivor Island
Survivor Island is a tough exploration of the human spirit. The place you will be stranded on looks idealic, however when you are left there with nothing, the island can soon turn into a prison. You will need to create shelter, find water, find food and make fire. Sounds simple right?
You will also need to ensure you are not exposed to the elements for too long. The sun can burn and at night the prevailing winds can make the evenings cold and horrible.However, all is not lost. You will have with you a Survival Expert who can guide you. You also have the chance to find things that wash ashore that may assist you, such as fishing line, plastic bottles or even a discarded flip flop.
This is the physical side of the experience. All this will play on your psychology. Being exposed, hungry and thirsty will change your moods and test your resilience. It will push you to places you have never been before and you will discover another side of you that you may have not been aware of. This can be a positive experience but it can also be a confronting one too. Working with others during this time can be a challenge.
We will endeavor to make the experience as real as possible. We want you to be pushed physically and mentally because this is exactly what someone would experience if they too were stranded on an island.
Day 11: Tonga (B,L,D)
After the experience we will return to the resort to wash and recover before heading home. Thus you will need to bring a change of clothes when you come off the island and clothes for your flight home. Rest and relax at resort.
Day 12: Flight Home
Transfer to the airport for your flight home.
