South African Defense Forces on training to be deployed to Mozambique

Two South African Infantry Battalion concludes Jungle Warfare Training at Entabeni which started in September to prepare the forces that will be deployed to Mozambique in the coming weeks. Entabeni is situated at one of the mountain top villages of Thohoyandou; this area was previously home to the Venda Defense Force. The SA Army has taken advantage of the natural jungle setup of this area that is an apt location for Jungle Warfare training.

The rugged terrain is a better setup to prepare our troops for what they will possibly meet in Mozambique. Entabeni enables our troops to be a robust, versatile, and aggressive force to sustain and overcome any eventuality, and operate in a hostile environment day and night.

Training objectives covered in the Introduction to Jungle were practicing survival techniques in the jungle and evasion and escape, executing foot patrols, orientation to the jungle, practicing river/streams obstacle crossing techniques, Infiltrating through dense jungle terrain, and practice navigation in dense vegetation using compass and GPS devices.

Members also practiced shooting quickly and accurately at unexpected targets day and night through jungle lane shooting and bush lane, practicing platoon offensive drills in jungle terrain, quick kills, ambushes, and attacks.
