With 200 people in 20 teams contesting against each other in a race that covered the whole of the southern region of the Cape peninsular. Following cryptic clues and directions, the teams navigated between locations where they had to select the right person for each task which included three Fire-fighting challenges, abseiling from Cavendish Square, Mountain Biking, an awesome high speed boat ride, paintball shooting and white-water sea canoeing.

SAFMARINE Survivor Challenge

SAFMARINE- Survivor Challenge
Another fabulous survivor challenge from the ship's management team of SAFMARINE-a separately-managed member of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, the largest liner shipping group in the world.

TDS Winelands Survivor Challenge

60 people
In May 2008 we organised a unique team-build event for Telkom Directory Services- TDS at the stunning LANZERAC wine estate near Stellenbosch.

Based on their cycling theme of TOURING THE CAPE we organised various bike-based and other team-building challenges. The teams had to assemble bikes from parts discovered, follow a paper-trail and collect clues around the wine estate, shoot to survive, complete the mental Toxic Waste problem, lead the blindfolded group to safety through the vineyards and other great tasks.

Catering and conference facilities provided at the Wine Estates luxuruous premses, completed a perfect Team Event.

"What an adventure; cycling in a beautiful estate, being blindfolded and going through the trenches, having to carry toxic waste and then off to do some shooting. A very eventful morning with everyone well and truly united as a team from the events."

"Thank you Nick for all the planning and preparing and on such short notice too. I would use your services again and again."

The day included lots of pirate themed puzzles and tasks, a quad-biking treasure hunt through the Atlantis Nature Reserve, Sandboarding and tobogganing challenges (never thought I'd see a totally naked grown man flying down a dune, and to be honest- I hope i never do again!!) as well as a gruelling paddling/surfing / life saving event at Ysterfontein and a 'Sink the Ship" competition using a giant catapult at Paternoster.

Of course all the participants were well rewarded at the end of the day regardless of how they did, with a lekker braai and of course plenty of Captain Morgans

Datchworth Colts Rugby Team Aug 2008




Datchworth Colts
30 people

We spent 2 great days with the lads from the UK rugby team. First we took them on a mornings rock climbing and abseiling in our awesome venue on Table Mountain.
Their last day on tour was spent with us at Atlantis Dunes Nature reserve for a fun day of sandboarding, quad biking, volleyball and other fun games. For a winter's day it was a scorcher- at least the boys all go home with a tan. We took them to the beach on the way home for a dip in the ocean, but had no idea this would involve a streak!!

Cheers to Jamie and the lads for a great laugh and excellent day.
