Bear Grylls shows you how to survive in one of the hottest, emptiest and driest places on earth: Namibia. His journey begins on the notorious skeleton coast, a lethal 900 mile stretch, which haswrecked thousands of ships and claimed thousands of lives. Dehydration is the biggest survival obstacle. With treacherous temperatures and not a drop of fresh water on the coast, Bear makes a solar still, a very simple way for distilling water, powered by the heat of the sun. Bear deftly gets some of the 10 liters of fluid you need to survive in these conditions using this survival tool which dates back to 1551. In the scorching Namibian desert, he encounters a puff adder — one of Africa's deadliest snakes. But the quest for water dominates, even in the presence of this deadly reptile. With rivers running 15 ft underground and water riddled with rock salt, Bear finds the plants that could save your life. Bear eventually meets up with the masters of desert survival, the San Bushmen. They reveal their water secrets and show Bear the joys of porcupine hunting
