Bear Grylls Mission Survive

The Mission is simple – Survive. Filmed for ITV in South Africa Bear Grylls Mission Survive Season 2 filming locations varied from the cold climate of the high mountains to the extreme heat of the coast. With remote film locations demanding a walk of several miles across rugged inhospitable terrain, the medium lift drone we used, fitted with a Panasonic Lumix GH4R camera, gave us a light weight, high endurance drone that proved to be a perfect for the task.

In the harsh environment of South Africa, Mother Nature is always in charge. The heat of the midday sun, the venomous snakes and scorpions that lurk underfoot in the mountains and the sharks that lay in wait in the turbulent sea, it truly isn’t a place for the foolhardy.
