Legendary adventurer, outdoor explorer and urine-drinking survivalist Bear Grylls is setting up his first Explorers Camp right here in the UAE.
The Bear Grylls survival course will be held at Jebel Jais, the highest mountain in the UAE. And for the first time, will include accommodation so you can get the most out of his sessions.
Bear Grylls Explorers Camp opens in October and the DubaiLAD team can’t wait. Although we’re not sure how the survivor skills we’ve learnt in 2020 will help us in the real world!
He will survive!
Bear Grylls is known around the world for his rugged outdoor adventures and his survival skills. He’s the star of several hit TV shows – there aren’t many Man Vs Wild episodes we’ve not seen – and he’s even trained Barack Obama, Anthony Joshua and with the SAS. So it’s fair to say he’s one of the best.
The courses will include 4, 8 and 24-hour options designed for families, adults and team-building. And 48-hour courses will follow next year when you’ll stay in one of 20 especially reconditioned trailers on the mountainside.
While you’re there, you’ll learn how to make a fire in the wild, build emergency shelters and learn how to use a knife. Plus you’ll learn about navigation techniques, emergency medical aid and extreme weather survival. Like that time Bear Grylls had to drink his own urine from a discarded snakeskin to stay alive. Gross. But also fair play.
