You will be given a few essentials (a map, a compass, a treasure map) and with these you must collect selected items hidden around the island. This will require communication and plenty of team work. The team to collect all the items in the fastest time wins this round. Once this task has been completed, we move on to stage 3.

Stage 3 : Survival Skills

Using items uncovered at stage 2, each group will be required to prepare an “Island Feast”, including rice, meat/fish and veggies. Teams must create this feast from scratch, building a fire, barbecuing on bamboo, and without the aid of modern equipment. The first team to create an entire (edible) meal wins this round.

Stage 4 : Save the eels!

The object of Stage 4 is to give our tank of friendly eels a new home! Each team member (no exceptions!) must take an eel from the water tank, and transfer it by hand a short distance to another water tank. Then, the team member tags the next person to continue until the tour guide indicates Time Up. The team who transfers the most slippery eels are the winners!

Stage 5 : Jungle Fashion Show

Finally, each team must present a “jungle fashion show” using banana leaves, coconut shells and other jungle materials. The more creative and stylish the outfits, the better!
