Les begins the second season in the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa. The scenario: running out of gas in the middle of the desert. His supplies: enough water for only four days, two empty soda cans, an empty jar of peanut butter, some jam, an ostrich egg, a broken down truck, and a bucket. The dangers: the brutal summer heat where temperatures on the sand reach 140F/60C; dehydration and heatstroke; scorpions and highly venomous Cape cobras.
Les finally gets to survive the one place he's always wanted to visit: the Amazon jungle in Ecuador. The scenario: brought by the natives into the jungle by canoe. The supplies: three feet of fishing line, a can of soda, a mosquito net, one match, 'fire dust', a blowgun, a machete, and a spear. The dangers: stingrays, jaguars, spiders, ants, snakes, and scorpions. Added difficulty: Les is nursing a previous hip injury.
Les journeys into Labrador in the Canadian Maritimes. The scenario: driving a dog sled team almost 100 miles back to civilization in late winter. The supplies: a .22 rifle, a bucket of caribou meat (for the dogs, not for him), and, for the first time, a self-designed survival kit. The dangers: hypothermia, getting lost, the weather's effect on the trail, and injury from the sled or the dogs. Added difficulties: the dogs aren't familiar with Les, the possibility of vicious fights between the dogs, and Les simulates the role of stranded dog sled driver.
Les ventures into the plains of northeastern South Africa. The scenario: hot-air balloon crash. The challenge: hike back to the support crew. The supplies: a machete, a knife, a bottle of water, some rope, a small first-aid kit, and the balloon itself. The dangers: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and the black mamba snake.
This time Survivorman decides to demonstrate survival by sea kayak in an ocean bay called Taroka Arm (literally 'black bear') for good reason. At this time of year, the salmon are active and are one of the black bear's favorite foods. Black bear and grizzlies that live in this area are among the largest in the world and gorge themselves on the silver salmon during this period.
Les demonstrates survival in the Cook Islands using SCUBA gear, a ship wreck and found articles.
