Spend the weekend with Carl. He’s very knowledgeable about bushcraft, particularly the fascinating subject of Natural Navigation. The course is very hands-on & pitched just right with a good balance of knowledge, information & fun! I’ll be back!

Great 30th Birthday!

The 2 day course ticked every box for me! Didn’t know what to expect but it was fantastic!!! Picture a group of best mates building a base camp from trees in the middle of the woods, around a fire we built, eating rabbit and pigeon we gutted, washed down with a couple of beers! All made possible by the laid back, get the job done style of teaching from Carl in knife use, fire building, navigation, meal prepping and more. An amazing experience on its own but Carl made it extra special by customising the experience to us and our needs. Great guy, great course. Do it, you will not be disappointed! Gavin

I have been out with Carl several times now, building on navigation methods already taught on previous courses by Mintaka, Carl is able to clearly explain the hows and whys of navigation using a map and compass, He’ll set a couple of tasks to make sure that you have grasped the technique/method which is good for confidence too, I plan to go out with him again when time allows, i always have a good time and always learn something new as well as reinforcing the basics each time I’ve been out. Do give him a call.

Map and compass

I attended one day map and compass course which was informative and gave me all the information I needed to know so I can navigate by myself, carl was a good instructor friendly and knowledgeable.

I attended an overnight course

I attended an overnight course with Mintaka Bushcraft and thoroughly enjoyed it. Carl engaged very well with each age group involved in the party to make sure everybody understood and enjoyed learning about the basic life skills. My favourite part was creating ember for a fire with the bow drill which I managed first time with Carls help. Definitely recommend and something for all ages !

what an amazing day!

Spent a wonderful day learning how to make fire by friction, Purify water and many other things! Lovely place and a great instructor with vast knowledge and skill in a wide range of topics. Will definitely be going back! Thanks for a great day Carl! 😁
