Family Bushcraft Weekend

This is one of our most popular courses and normally takes place over a weekend, though it can be midweek too. The Family Course offers us an opportunity to spend more time looking at the bushcraft classics mentioned in the One Day Course. It is a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to come together in this beautiful place to learn about nature and how to survive in it.

Here on the estate it is the perfect location for children to run free, have adventures, but do so in a safe environment. We have nature trails, trees to climb, a games room and even the option of watching a movie in our cinema room, sometimes a good idea for rainy nights.

During the summer, spring and autumn you may want to spend time on the rafts on our stunning wild lake or take a dip in our circular pool as you gaze over to Africa.

This is a fully catered course, with three meals per day of delicious local organic food all home cooked. For the accommodation you will be staying at our stunning lodge house, more details can be found here.

This course will include:

•How to light fires, including campfire cooking (and toasting marshmallows too!)

•Discovering how to track animals and lay secret trails

•How to find wild foods, medicinal plants as well as identifying the poisonous ones!

•Building and sailing rafts on our lake

•Collecting plants and roots to make natural dyes. Bring along a white cotton t-shirt and make it the colour of your choice

•Go on a mountain hike to collect special grasses to weave into ropes and bracelets

•Learning how to navigate using the sun and the stars and go on a midnight hike to discover the nocturnal wildlife.

•Build your own bushcraft shelter and create a beautiful wilderness basecamp
