Bear Grylls Wild Survival Academy

Do you have what it takes to beat the elements and survive in the wild?

Join us this summer between 29 July and 3 September as we exclusively host the Bear Grylls Wild Survival Academy for the first time ever!

Your little ones can become real wildlife explorers and put their survival skills to the test with a host of invigorating challenges from Shelter Building and Assault Course to our Wildlife ID Quiz.

Learn how to forage for food deep in the forest at our Wild Foods station and discover how to track and study animal behaviour with our Observation Station.

So what are you waiting for!? It’s time to blend into your surroundings, test your animal knowledge and perfect your survival skills at our Bear Grylls Wild Survival Academy event.

All activities are included in your ticket price. Activities for ages 5 and up!

Plus, book on our fire lighting demo for just £5. Tickets available on the day at the exhibit. 

Live show

As if all that wasn't enough, teams from ZSL and the Bear Grylls Survival Academy will demonstrate how animals and humans survive in extreme conditions with our live interactive show taking place at 12pm every day throughout the summer.


Love the idea of becoming an explorer?

Take things a step further and book Field Academy, a two-day course which gives students the chance to develop skills seen only in our most dedicated field staff. From tracking animals, completing team challenges and going behind the scenes of the UK’s largest Zoo, Field Academy allows students to get hands on in a unique Zoo setting.
