Adventurer, artisan, and biologist, Hazen Audel, has travelled to and immersed himself in some of the most remote places on earth, surviving in some of the harshest environments. 

By integrating himself into indigenous groups and navigating extreme terrains, Hazen has spent the last 30 years studying nature and anthropology in the field, integrating himself into these communities, and learning from their lives and practices.  

The intrepid adventurer takes on his first extreme safari expedition through East Africa's legendary Great Rift Valley. Audel's incredible journey is captured in 'Primal Survivor: Extreme African Safari', which will premiere on National Geographic across Africa (DStv 181) on Wednesday, 22 November 2023 at 21:00 (CAT).

From his time as a biology teacher to his work as a survival instructor, wilderness guide, and naturalist, Hazen's teaching style has always been to educate through experience. 

With a Bachelor of Science in Biology specialising in botany and zoology, Hazen furthered his education with a Master's Degree in Tropical Biology and Science Education. 

Along with hardened expertise in scuba diving, mountaineering, and whitewater travel, his biology profession has taken him throughout the most remote areas of the Americas, Australia, Indonesia, and the South Pacific. He is fluent in Spanish and conversant in several indigenous languages such as Bahasa, Quichua, and South Pacific Pidgin. 

Peppering his passion with skills learnt from artisans and communities worldwide, Hazen has built his own home and farmstead where he lives off-grid and is self-sufficient, growing most of his own food.

A Kootenai and Salish Native American by descent, Hazen's unique perspective on the world and his gift of understanding and explaining the landscape and communities worldwide can be seen in his hit National Geographic series, 'Primal Survivor', now in its 8th season. 

He recently trekked almost on foot through East Africa’s legendary Great Rift Valley, spanning over 800km, relying on foraged foods and making connections with nomadic people along the way to survive.

This is captured in the upcoming National Geographic series, 'Primal Survivor: Extreme African Safari'.
