Survival courses used to be the sort of challenge you’d be forced to undertake during one of those dreaded workplace team-building weekends.

Things have moved on, thanks to the popularity of TV shows featuring Bear Grylls and Ray Mears. Survival sessions are now becoming popular weekend breaks for people of all ages.

One company even gives you the chance to test your survival skills with Maasai tribesmen in Africa.

The Great Destinations Radio Show’s Keri Jones spoke to two course operators – Jason Ingamells, Company Director at Woodland Ways Bushcraft & Survival and Jonny Crockett of Survival School.
