Where The Wild Men Are

New series starts Jan 6

Show Synopsis

Adventurer Ben Fogle meets more people who’ve ditched a life of debts and daily grind for something different. These intrepid adventurers have made their homes in some of Earth’s most remote locations. An American widow farming on the edge of the Sahara desert. A trailblazer who built a backpackers’ hostel with a difference in the Guatemalan jungle. A cabin builder in the Arkansas bush, and a Brit patrolling Cambodian waters to stop the illegal trawler trade. Discover the reality of leaving it all behind. Is it daring? Or is it just downright crazy?
