Be Wild –

Extraordinary team building experience in the bush

Take advantage of this extraordinary experience – team building set within the peaceful setting of a bush camp in a Big 5 nature reserve on the Garden Route. The programme is set in a classic eco-friendly tented camp in a protected valley blanketed in Fynbos in the heart of the game reserve. Over the 4 days, your team of 10 – 15 people will be tasked with activities which will not only shed light on their own strengths whilst encouraging collaboration (using the internationally accredited Clifton Strengths Profiling of Gallup Strengths Centre processes) but also make a valuable contribution to the conservation of our beloved bush and its wildlife.

Teams will be tasked to perform team building activities within in wildlife & veld management. On foot or in a safari vehicle in search of lions, elephant families, cheetah or gazelles they will together with your ranger team you will observe the wild animals, collect data about their feeding and mating habits, and in so doing contribute to the decision-making of the management team in promoting a healthy ecosystem in the game reserve. They  will also help to keep the reserve free from invader plants, and you will assist in guarding the highly endangered rhinos,  getting up close to these endangered animals and helping to protect them from poachers.

Participants will also learn game ranger bush skills and need to use them in the team activities, including track/spoor identification, antelope and bird identification, tree identification, map utilization (road, contour, aerial Google maps & GPS navigation) and approaching wildlife by vehicle and on foot.

Your team will leave this experience feeling like they know themselves and each other better, as well as more connected to nature and proud to have contributed to the conservation efforts.
