"Born Survivor" follows British mountaineer and adventurer Bear Grylls into some of the world's most inhospitable places. Bear reveals the fundamental survival skills needed to get out alive as he attempts to find his way back to civilisation!
Bear attempts to make it through a week of challenges in a place where most people wouldn't last a day: Namibia, one of the hottest, driest, emptiest places in the world. Watch in anticipation as Bear is dropped off on the treacherous Skeleton Coast and immediately begins his quest for water as he battles searing heat and dehydration. On his journey Bear encounters a deadly puff adder, climbs to the top of Brandberg Mountain and joins the San Bushmen, the ultimate master of survival, on a hunt for a San 'delicacy': porcupines. Zambia
Northeast of Namibia's desert wilderness, Zambia couldn't be more of a contrast. Lush and green, it's home to one of the deadliest rivers in the world. Bear heads straight to a Zambezi river that is fit to burst. Armed with no more than a body board, our hero plunges himself directly towards its killer rapids. This epic journey also sees Bear fishing for food in hippo and crocodile infested waters, a truly incredible elephant encounter and a meal of giant bugs - all in the name of survival.
