Cape Town – America's president Barack Obama will tackle nature's challenges when he appears in a special episode with survivalist Bear Grylls in Discovery Channel's (DStv 121) Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls started in May on the Discovery Channel on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform and sees the survivalist take celebrities with him as they endure harsh wilderness in remote locations in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys.
Now the outgoing president Barack Obama will trek through the Alaskan wilderness with Bear Grylls.
The episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls will be recorded soon and broadcast later this year to help highlight the effects of climate change in Alaska.
"President Obama will meet with Bear Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change on the area. The two will then come together in the Alaskan wilderness. President Obama will become the first US president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls."
One thing we do know is that President Obama will not be drinking his own urine.
