Season 7 of the Discovery series was filmed in the US state of Louisiana.

Naked and Afraid’s main filming location is in Atchafalaya Basin, which is located in south central Louisiana and is the largest wetland and swamp in the country. The location is full of murky waters and has predators lurking all over its 7,000 acres vast land.

The area boasts of several species such as alligators, bobcats, black bears, Florida panthers, and so many more. They are all challenges that each contestant might face during their time on the show.

To add to the participant’s difficulties, this season was filmed during winter and they will face near-freezing temperatures.
