Be castaway in a remote paradise, where nature still reigns in its wildest form, unblemished by man or machine. Leave the relentlessness of the modern world behind and reawaken your primal instincts during a unique survival experience, armed only with Mother Nature’s abundant resources in an unforgettable desert island experience. First choose your island: Panama, Tonga, Philippines or French Polynesia?
Finding genuine solitude and testing your human endeavour, away from the distractions of everyday life, can enrich your soul in deeply valuable and profound new ways. This trip is perfect for solo travellers looking for total isolation, or a group of up to eight friends wanting to experience island survival as a team in a desert island experience.
Few places on Earth still retain their raw, untamed vigour. Accompanied by an experienced expedition leader, a speedboat will whisk you across virgin waters to a remote corner of the world, where you will be marooned on an island of untouched beauty for your vacation. 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, your expedition leader will leave you alone to camp, relax or explore in blissful isolation – all in the knowledge that help is just a call away if and when you tire of the uninterrupted horizons (a satellite phone will be provided). Along the island fringes, coral crowns are teeming with technicolor aquatics and whales migrate within swimming distance of the shores. Amuse yourselves with a fire-making competition, beach games or search for buried gold on your own treasure island.
On the ancient volcanic island of Tonga, it’s the animals who take precedence in any desert island experience. French Polynesia is an unending colour wheel of blues, golds and greens. Off the isthmus of Panama is a verdant island (famed by Bear Grylls) that’s blanketed in a dense jungle full of incredible wildlife. Whatever your chosen destination and time of year, there are many breathtaking natural phenomena to behold. Witness thousands of spawning crabs animating the sandy beaches, turtles nesting under a full moon or whales breaching in the shallows as you eat breakfast on vacation.
As the sun rises and sets over your private island, your circadian rhythm will begin to attune to its natural cues. Experience the most blissful night’s sleep you will ever have as your hammock sways to the soundtrack of the ocean waves. Unending stars provide the only blanket you will need, phosphorescent plankton and fireflies create a natural nightlight and the tymbal drum of tree crickets act as nature’s wake-up call.
On your final day, a rescue crew will appear to return you to the lap of luxury. As you reacquaint yourself with the contentment of a hot shower and crisp, white sheets, you will have a newfound appreciation for modern conveniences. Simplicity and self-sufficiency will imbue you a genuine sense of achievement. Celebrate with some chilled champagne and a magnificent beach feast – you've earned it.
