Our sniper adventure course is a course that forms part of our adventure series. This is not a course to prepare you for any sniper or DDM position anywhere in the world.

This course was designed to give a realistic glimpse into the psychology of being a very small unit that has to move covertly into areas without being seen. It culminates in an exercise using marksmanship, camouflage, concealment, mission planning, and preparation and combining all these elements into one exercise.

NOTEthis course is NOT designed to teach you marksmanship skills over 2 or 3 km distances.

If you are already a long-range marksman, this course may not be for you.

If you are a hunter or looking for a fun adventure then this is for you.

Our lead instructor, Joseph McIntyre (affectionately known as Mac), boasts an impressive 18-year tenure with the South African Special Forces (Recces). Throughout his distinguished career, he served in various capacities, from being an integral team member to leading teams and commanding missions across the African continent.

Joseph’s exceptional expertise extends beyond operational duties. He played a pivotal role in crafting and refining Special Forces doctrine, meticulously shaping the curriculum, training programs, and assessment materials for the South African Special Forces Reconnaissance. His contributions have been instrumental in honing the skills of aspiring Special Forces soldiers.

A testament to his knowledge and leadership, Joseph has been a key figure in instructing numerous specialized courses. His instructive prowess spans across diverse programs, including the Basic Cycle, Combat Demolitions, as well as the esteemed Special Forces Team Leader and Reconnaissance Course. Notably, his dedication to education and training extends to both local recruits and international students, further amplifying his impact on aspiring Special Forces operatives worldwide.

Comprehensive Learning Experience:

Across six engaging modules, participants delve deep into the art of long-range shooting. But that’s not all! While mastering marksmanship remains a focal point, our curriculum goes beyond that. Participants will immerse themselves in lessons encompassing camouflage techniques, bushcraft, and survival skills, making you a well-rounded outdoor specialist.

Who Should Enroll:

This course isn’t a pathway to a career as a military or police sniper, nor is it intended for paramilitary training. Instead, it’s perfect for individuals seeking an adrenaline-pumping adventure, aiming to elevate their shooting skills as well as hunters who want to sharpen their hunting skills.

This is also NOT for shooters wanting to hit a gong over a 2/3km distance. Precision shooting clubs are offering that.

Expect to get down and dirty on this course; expect serious bushcraft with a solid understanding of your shooting platform, helping you to take that one shot. Even if you are a highly proficient shooter, you will be expected to participate in all the modules. Keep in mind that some students will be novices, and we have to cater for them as well. 

The course was designed as a unit, offering you both the opportunity to understand your platform as well as develop your bushcraft skills. 

Note: This is not a pathway to a sniper career in any Military or Police force.

Nor is it intended to train paramilitary snipers.
