Tales from his nail-biting adventures to the world’s wildest places with the most bizarre and deadly beasts on earth will leave audiences of all ages on the edge of their seats.

From the depths of the rainforest to the bottom of the sea, there is very little Steve Backshall hasn’t seen which will keep audiences’ eyes and ears glued from start to finish.

Steve currently stars in the gripping BBC Two series Steve Backshall’s Extreme Mountain Adventure which sees him embark on one of his most dramatic and dangerous expeditions to date.

Steve exploresVenezuela’s tepuis, the ancient, sheer-sided mountains of Canaima National Park, where he attempts the first ascent of the tepui in search of wildlife on the summit.

Steve also has a thrilling new six-part TV series, Fierce, on ITV in spring this year where he seeks to find the world’s most fierce animals.

Wild World will accompany the release of Shark Seas - the fourth book in the Falcon Chronicles series of children’s novels. Steve’s new novel is due to be released ahead of the tour and will be available to purchase at each venue.
