Cam Jungle

Cameron Advanced Mobility’s Jungle Driving Course is designed to give the student the challenges and considerations needed to navigate any type of jungle terrain, as well as vehicle and personal considerations that need to be taken into account while operating in a jungle environment.

Vehicle maintenance and preservation are paramount in any multiday expedition.  The students will learn how to maintain their vehicles and perform proper preventative maintenance as well as maintaining the vehicles in the field environment.  Mechanical scenarios will be created to challenge the students into figuring out problems and executing repairs.  Students will need to take into account fuel ranges and monitor fuel calculations in the occurrence of foul weather and the jungle tracks become increasingly more difficult as well as considering the lack of available fuel.

CAM brings the highest level of training available utilizing vehicles specifically designed for jungle travel.  Students will be traveling in purpose built Land Rover Defender 110’s and Toyota HiLux pick-ups.

Navigation will be of the utmost importance. GPS as well as maps will be utilized due to the sometimes spotty coverage inside the jungle canopy.  Each student will have the opportunity to take the lead, plan and navigate the next day’s route.

Students will leave the CAM Jungle course with a strong proficiency in jungle driving, jungle navigating and executing multiple vehicle recovery scenarios.  As well as knowing what it takes to successfully accomplish a vehicle based multi day jungle expedition.

CAM is proud to offer yet another practical real world driving experience to anyone who desires the need to know the disciplines needed for successful completion of a multiday vehicle based expedition, anywhere in the world!  CAM instructors are the industry leaders in advanced mobility.

Camel Trophy veterans and industry leading professional in the off road industry round out the cadre needed to maintain the level of expertise Cameron Advanced Mobility is known for worldwide.
