About Us

Bear Grylls has become known around the world as the most recognized face of survival and outdoor adventure. His TV show 'Man Vs Wild' became one of the most watched programmes with an estimated audience of 1.2 billion.

Bear spent three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, as part of 21 SAS Regiment. It was here that he perfected many of the survival skills that his fans all over the world enjoy and the reason for the launch of the Bear Grylls Survival Academy back in 2012 in the UK. The Academy is super proud to be welcomed to the UAE with courses opening in 2020.

The Bear Grylls Explorers Camp is located in Jebel Jais, the ideal location for challenging adventurers with its stunning mountainous terrain.

Bear Grylls Explorers Camp in Ras Al Khaimah is run in partnership with RAK Leisure LLC on Jebel Jais.

Our Courses

The Bear Grylls Explorers Camp in Ras Al Khaimah is run by Bear’s team of highly trained instructors and experts in their field. Programmes have been designed by Bear Grylls and developed by the local team based on Bear’s survival experiences, his dynamic methods and techniques.

Half Day Survival Course
Half Day Survival Course

Learn the basics of survival on this fast-paced 3-hour course. Based on Jebel Jais this course will leave you tired but exhilarated. Even in such a short time you can get an understanding of the skills Bear uses to survive the wild.

In any survival situation, you need to determine your priorities, then act calmly and methodically. Bear uses this memory aid: “Please Remember What’s First” 

P for Protection: Be aware of animal or human predators, extreme weather and other threats.

R for Rescue: When lost, devise a plan for getting help, whether by setting a signal fire, leaving signs on the ground, or writing “SOS” where it can be seen from the sky. 

W for Water: Locating water within 24 hours is essential, since your survival without it is limited to about three days.

F for Fire and Food: Building a fire provides warmth, protection and a way to cook food and boil water. While you can survive three weeks without eating, you’ll have a much better chance of self-rescue with protein and energy.

Here is a list of skills and activities you will undertake during your course:

  • Navigate harsh terrain
  • Rope use techniques
  • Survival knife skills
  • Fire lighting
  • Water purification

ABOUT THE COURSE

  • Courses are available daily except Monday and Tuesday starting at 8am or 2pm
  • Each course is limited to 16 participants who must be aged 18yrs+ in order to attend
