Bear Grylls Wild Survival Academy at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
Coming to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo on July 29th until 3rd September, the Bear Grylls Wild Survival Academy is a rip-roaring summer experience that will test your survival skills to the limit! Get ready to become wildlife experts and get into the Bear Grylls mindset as you get involved in exhilarating challenges and fun activities that are sure to make you think you’re out in the wild!

If you’re brave enough to take the adventure, you’ll get to take part in a thrilling assault course, learn how to put up shelters and have your knowledge on wildlife put to the test in an exciting quiz! All explorers also have the opportunity to tickle their taste buds with wild foods that include fruit, herbs and mealworms (if you’re brave enough!) to give an understanding of how important finding sustainable food in the world is to surviving!
