Welcome to Survival-Africa.co.za. My name is Anton, owner of this site. In addition, I am also the distributor for a variety of US and UK manufactured products, such as ESEE/RC Knives and Tops knives. Have a look at these at www.ratcutlery.co.za and www.topsknives.co.za, if you are looking for state of the art-high quality products. As a tactical instructor, camper, hunter, and avid survival and wilderness skills practitioner, I have a great love for the outdoors. Most of the products that you will find here are ones that I have researched, sought out and used extensively in a variety of conditions BEFORE making it available on this site. If they don’t work for me, I don’t sell them – plain and simple.


I love to spend time in the wilderness. Over the last 15 years we have had numerous excursions that have provided me with many unforgettable experiences, and I have learned how vulnerable human beings are and how my knowledge of wilderness survival is of the highest importance. Anyone could find themselves in an emergency situation , however, even the most basic survival knowledge could mean the difference between life and death. A basic understanding of survival techniques should enable anyone to travel through the wilderness with an increased level of confidence and enjoyment. The best time to practice any wilderness survival skills - start a fire, shelter building or whatever - is before you need them. We aim to provide you with products and information that will enable you to do exactly that.

 This website is dedicated to providing useful information for survival, bushcraft and safe wilderness travel.

 Not only do we provide you with the right equipment, but we also teach how to use them in practice, through our regular Survival/Wilderness/Bushcraft courses. Our courses take place allover Southern Africa, and are set against inspirational landscapes. They are structured to give you the maximum in hours of teaching and practice, and provide you with an ultimate outdoor learning experience.

 Whether you would like to develop your survival and wilderness skills for adventure travel, or you are passionate about nature and simply want to take some time out from your usual routine to reconnect with the environment – you have come to the right place.

 In recent years, survival and wilderness skills have increased in popularity, however it has become a bit of a catch-all that spans a number of genres from military-style survival training to new-age wilderness philosophies and primitive living skills. Our courses are not about playing the primitive, neither are we a military style 'boot-camp'. It is our belief that by drawing on the wealth of traditional living skills and the best of modern know-how, we offer you an opportunity to learn new skills, build confidence, and gain a new perspective on the natural environment. Our instructors come from a broad spectrum background with years of experience in a variety of disciplines to ensure you get the maximum results.

Our courses should be viewed as being a wilderness education experience and not as an ordinary holiday.


Our courses are not for people who just want to watch others, we expect 100% participation – through doing – you learn ! Our courses are usually conducted from an expedition style base camp, of which the largest % are spent outdoors.

 Acquiring survival skills is an ongoing process that will last your entire life. There is always more to learn and experience, which is part of the fun of being a survivor. As your survival expertise grows the knowledge and abilities you gain are often useful in other areas. For example survivors prepare ahead of time, and they are experts in the art of ingenuity and inventiveness. Excellent attributes for anyone.
