Sharing Knowledge To Make A Better World...

“For the man who makes everything that leads to happiness, or near to it, to depend upon himself, and not upon other men … has adopted the very best plan for living happily. This is the man of moderation; this is the man of manly character and of wisdom.”

Episode 5 - Africa Safari

Ray fulfils a childhood dream by experiencing a true safari, Masai-style. He teams up with a Masai warrior in Tanzania and embarks on a safari.

Walking through a beautiful valley inhabited by wild animals, he spots a variety of useful plants and ends the day sleeping under the stars.

Plot Summary
Ray spent years and years honing his survival skills in some of the world's harshest landscapes, travelling to the most inhospitable and dangerous places on earth and attempting to exist on next to nothing.

Along the way Ray introduces us to people we'd never, ever meet and takes us to places Easy Jet simply doesn't fly to. Plus, he lets us in on some invaluable survival secrets. After all, you really never know when you'll be stranded somewhere with a penknife in one hand and a caterpillar in the other.

In Ray Mears' Bushcraft, the SAS survival guru pops along to the Amazon jungle, Tanzania, Canada, America and Sweden, and explores the important role played by bushcraft in the survival of indigenous people. He puts his own resourcefulness to the test as he lives alongside people such as the Yekuana of Venezuela and the Masai of Tanzania, learns new skills like making buckskin and hones his expertise in others like animal tracking.
