Float your boat

Assemble and paint a wooden boat. Then watch the boat go down the moat to the dam, catch it and start again. This is a great activity to see who paints the best as well as who can get their boat to go the fastest down the moat.

A working dairy farm in the city is not something one would expect to find nowadays. Situated in the heart of Gauteng, in the beautiful village of Irene, the Van der Byl family (now in their fifth generation) have generously welcomed locals and visitors from afar, on to their farm for many years – allowing young and old to enjoy the dairy farm experience without having to leave the city.

Team building events have been known to strengthen bonds amongst team members, giving them the opportunity to get to know each other in a relaxed, fun environment. In addition to this, activities can encourage self-development, positive communication and leadership skills whilst at the same time identify and address weaknesses. These events help to improve team morale leaving team members motivated to work harder towards a common goal. It’s a good idea to arrange a team building exercise from time-to-time to ensure your team remains a successful one.

Our open space Farm Field not only allows you a vast area to set up just about any event you could think of (from carnivals and giant inflatables to survival scenarios), but the farm feel and fresh air will ensure an enjoyable outdoors experience. There’s even enough space for team members to have five minutes of individual reflection once the day is done. There aren’t any other team building venues around that can offer you a ‘farmyard’ feel without actually leaving the hustle and bustle of the city.

Let us know what you have in mind and we will assist in any way that we can. Contact us for further details. We look forward to ensuring your team building event is as successful as the future of your team.
