Had a great weekend with the guys. As a relative novice to all things outdoors, it was great to learn new skills along with the theory behind it. All the guys are really passionate about what they do and go the extra mile to make sure its as enjoyable as possible. The food throughout was excellent and had a great time building my shelter and relaxing with my own little fire after a busy day learning. Many thanks to Matt, Paul & John for providing such an excellent time.

Just got back from primal bushcraft and survival day and it was amazing! We learnt so much and had so much fun, making a fire is such a good feeling!!! The team are fantastic, so knowledgable, friendly and made the day the best experience… cant wait to do the next course. If YOU Are Thinking About Going, YOU Should! And take all your friends, it’s brilliant.

Big thanks to Team Primal for well designed and prepared weekend of Urban Survival & Prepping Skills.
I’ve had a wonderful time. The course was run by very well prepared and equipped experts. Very knowledgeable, skilled and open minded people that made everyone feel welcome.
I would recommend this course to everyone. Doesn’t matter if you are a complete novice, if you want to brush up your skills or learn something new.

Had a great time learning survival skills with the Primal team. From purifying water and making fire, to knife skills and even stopping arterial bleeds! Great setting too, out in the woods round the fire, it was a great base for the course. I will defiantly be signing up for the 5 day course next!

Thank you for the amazing weekend Matt and Paul at Primal Bushcraft and Survival! I’m still talking about it  Learning how to make your own fire and being kept warm by it during a freezing cold night is something special… The memory of it stays with you forever! Not even talking about the great people you meet during the course:) Highly recommended experience . Look forward to my next outing and learning more survival skills! Bernadett – Urban survival course – March 2017.

Just back from our days experience, one if the best days me and my wee bay have had. To get him unplugged from tech for the day and loving it is a massive tribute to Mat and Paul . He was hanging on their every word.!!! Absolute fantastic day and we both loved the experience 10 out of 10. Desperate to do the overnight experience now . Can’t recommend highly enough. Better than any theme park !!

I spent 2 nights on the castaway trip. We learn how to build shelter, start fires, filter water, knife skills, how to navigate and a lot more. I would highly recommend it.

Paul Flanagan

Great time, a good portion learning how to be on a sailing crew, and sea navigation. The island portion was a blast as well, I feel ive learned some great survival skills. The experts were very friendly, funny and informative.
