Ideal for all types of adventurers, including solo travellers, couples, families, friends and corporate groups, a visit or stay at the camp, located on Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest peak, is guaranteed to thrill and will be etched in your memory forever.
Here are some camp highlights not to be missed:
Based on Bear’s survival experiences, his dynamic methods and techniques, the camp’s survival courses offer something for everyone, from the fast-paced four-hour Essential Survival Course where you will get a sound understanding of the skills Bear uses to stay safe in the wild, to an intense Primal Survival Course where you will learn practical life-saving skills and attitudes such as resourcefulness and remaining calm under pressure. For bravehearted families, the Family Primal Survival Course is a 24-hour outdoor adventure that will forge close bonds.
Popular for team-building exercises, these courses teach you how to handle the most extreme conditions. You will practice navigation techniques, how to apply remote medical trauma treatment, generate a fire from scratch and even build a shelter in the wilds. When you return, there’s the option to stay overnight in one of the camp’s comfortable cabins for a well-earned rest and a reflection on what you have achieved.
For a back-to-nature experience, the cabins at the Bear Grylls Explorer Camp, nestled among the rugged mountain landscape will expose you to the great outdoors, but in a cosy environment with modern conveniences and crucially, a bathroom and a bed!
