Land survival Land survival In this first module, we explore the discipline of land survival and its value as life insurance in a survival emergency. It creates awareness of the circumstances that may require survival knowledge, especially in the light of current situations in a world fraught with natural disasters, war and terrorism, aeroplane, shipping and other transport disasters.
Ecology of survival Ecology of survival This module aims to create an awareness of human vulnerability in the African Big 5 territory and illustrate the value of basic ecology as a very helpful skill in survival. It then aims to also familiarise the learner with the actual ecological territories they may expect to encounter in a survival emergency and the associated key survival factors.
Psychology of survival Psychology of survival Since the correct mental attitude increases your chances of survival exponentially, it is important to internalise the value and dangers of fear and panic in psychological survival. This module also centres on focusing the learner not only to be prepared for the unexpected but also to use their mind to survive and to trigger the required activities in response to a survival situation.
Edible and useful plants of Southern Africa Edible and useful plants of Southern Africa This module aims to inform explorers about useful and edible plants, their different parts, their uses, and their associated hazards and considerations. It also provides a last resort mechanism to obtain edible plant material in a survival situation through rules of edibility and testing. Useful lists and introductions to specific species are provided regarding vegetation types of Southern Africa.
Animals: their survival uses and dangers Animals: their survival uses and dangers Although animals are potentially dangerous, they are also a resource in survival situations. Knowledge of animals may save a person's life, for not only are they a potential source of food, but they could also indicate danger or warn us against danger, lead us to water, show us where the food is and even indicate direction. Techniques on how to deal with dangerous game are also described.
Improvisations and survival skills Improvisations and survival skills The objectives of this module are to improve and use survival skills to purify water, obtain food and beverages, and protect yourself against the elements. It focuses on ways to shelter yourself and protect you from dangerous animals. To make the survival effort more comfortable, time is spent on improvising basic useful tools and implements and making a fire using the friction method.
Bush medicine Bush medicine The nature of bush survival is such that medical emergencies often arise without warning. This module is not a substitute for emergency care and first aid but aims to bring into perspective those medical issues most likely to be experienced in a Bushveld survival situation. Look at the causes of medical emergencies, how to deal with afflicted people and how to prevent medical emergencies.
Nutrition Nutrition Nutrition examines the importance of metabolism, the nutrient requirement of the body and natural nutrient sources to enable the survivor to find natural survival nutrients in the Southern African Bush. It also aims to establish water as the most important priority of life in a survival situation and inform the survivor of the potential water sources in the dry landscape of Southern Africa.
Sea and coastal survival Sea and coastal survival This module takes the survivor into the sea and coastal regions. It looks at the natural forces and environments shaping this coastline and how it influences our survival. Reflect on marine wildlife, their threats and dangers and how we can use them. The focus is always on safety. The last component examines sea and coastal afflictions like motion sickness and drowning.
Natural navigation Natural navigation People have revered the sun, moon and stars since ancient times, some as godly entities and yet others as an integral part of their timekeeping and daily life cycle. Since an emergency or survival situation can arise when least expected and modern navigation tools may not be available. This module aims to enable the survivor to find direction and time with alternate and natural methods.
