Since launching in November 2012, the Bear Grylls Survival Academy has expanded and developed beyond all recognition. From our humble beginnings on the outskirts of London we are now established on 5 continents in a variety of different environments from jungles to deserts to some of the most stunning mountain ranges imaginable.
This unforeseen success and expansion is without doubt down to the BGSA instructors being of the very highest quality and from a wide range of backgrounds. All of our lead instructors have worked personally with Bear on his TV shows including Mission Survive, Bear Grylls Survival School and Running Wild. The majority of our lead instructors are from a Military background from some of the elite forces around the world including the Royal Marine Commandos, the Parachute Regiment and the South African Special Forces and are truly expert adventurers in their own right.
