Course Information

Season: October - May each year

In this intense 24-hour survival experience, you’ll learn practical life-saving skills, attitudes such as resourcefulness and calmness under pressure, and push yourself farther than ever before.

From hour one, when you arrive in the wilds of Jebel Jais with limited supplies, the pressure is on to source food and water locally. Guided by Bear’s team of highly trained experts, you’ll be taught to identify animal runs, lay traps, skin and gut your dinner, and forage to supplement your diet. You’ll acquire survival knife skills, wilderness first aid, fire lighting, and rope skills like knots and harnesses, then use these skills to navigate difficult terrain such as wadi’s and steep cliffs. You’ll also learn to build emergency shelters and protect yourself in the wild from attack.
