Attending the survival wild on 19.11.2023 was an enlightening experience. The event offered practical insights into surviving with limited water, teaching efficient purification methods and emphasizing the crucial role of hydration. Learning to make fire and construct a shelter provided essential skills for navigating challenging environments. The hands-on approach allowed us to apply these techniques, fostering a sense of confidence and self-sufficiency. Instructors expertly guided us through real-world scenarios, making the workshop both informative and engaging. Overall, a valuable experience that equipped attendees with essential survival skills for unpredictable situations

The instructor's kindness and engaging stories made the experience not just educational but genuinely enjoyable. Highly recommend it for anyone looking to build practical wilderness survival skills with a personal touch.

Survive the Wild Workshop at Expo Lake, Dubai - A Huge Success! We had a blast at our Survive the Wild Workshop at Expo Lake, Dubai on Saturday! Over 40 people participated in the workshop, and we learned all about how to survive in the wilderness. The workshop covered a wide range of topics, including: How to find food and water in the wilderness How to build a shelter How to start a fire How to navigate using a compass and map How to survive in different types of climates We also had the opportunity to practice their survival skills in a real-world setting. They built shelters, started fires, and navigated through the desert. I was so impressed with the enthusiasm and dedication of the Muaad, Rama and Fayaz, very knowledgeable and supportive individuals. They were ensured that we conducted the activities while keeping ourselves safe. If you're interested in learning how to survive in the wilderness, I highly recommend attending one of our Survive the Wild Workshops. They're a great way to learn important survival skills, and they're also a lot of fun! It is also a great opportunity to meet new people and explore UAE.

An absolutely amazing and extremely insightful event which you cannot even leave with all the shared knowledge as Moaz is basically sharing too many interesting information :). It is a blast for your heart and soul to spend weekend day like that. Thank you or doing this!

Amazing, rich and unique experience. The trip leader Moaz is a walking encyclopedia.
