OMAPA Communication Games

We believe the best team building activities not only serve to increase communication amongst your team members, but also help to form some great memories they can share! With games as palm and finger catch, balloon hug pop, group hop-not speaking, Tin Can Long Jump, and handcuffs, they had an amazing day! Happy clients and happy Adventure Works :)

Wine a little, laugh a lot!

The amazing race started from Table Bay Hotel and took Dynasty Travel through the winelands in Franschhoek. With their racebooks they navigated their way around the spectacular Cape Winelands. They answered questions about the winelands, created a necklace from materials along the way, completed the clues in the Racebook and stopped at check points for completing challenges. Challenges like wine blending at Blaauklippen (including a small bottle to bring back the wine they’ve blend), designing the most beautiful wine label, and a wine/Beer & chocolate tasting. After a lot of wine, we ended the day with a nice braai lunch and don’t forget: the champagne shower. Thank you Dynasty Travel! You are a great group and we had a lovely day!

Old Mutual forward with ”Communication Catalyst”

Although it was Friday the 13th, considered as ‘’unluckiest day’’, it was a lucky day for Old Mutual! They had a team-building day named Communication Catalyst! We did team building games that inspired, excited, motivated and leaded to better communication. Also the games increased the trust and a greater team spirit. We hope that we learned them some communication skills accessible to their business and that they had lovely day!

Flight Centre flew through the Urban Adventure

After a great party night at Shimmy’s it was time for a team building day for Flight Centre! Blindfolds, necklaces, and lots of laughs were on the agenda for today. We guided them through a series of experiential activities that focused on team work, effective communication and trust-building.

For anyone who has ever done the “Blind Square” activity you know the challenge of getting 15 people to make a square out of rope while everyone is blindfolded! This activity tested their ability to listen to each other and identify leaders to follow. In the end they were quite proud of their almost-perfect square!

Other activities focused on communication were a drumming challenge at Greenmarket Square, spice tasting in Bo Kaap, haggling with Adderley Street Flower sellers and discovering Historic statues and locations. The end point was Company Gardens for showing their necklaces, chilling and especially for dealing with the hangover. Thanks Flight Centre for the awesome team building day, you were a great group!

Red Bus Amazing Race with Vodacom

Amazing Race time! With the Hop -on-Hop-off Red City Bus as transport, Vodacom went to every hot spot in order to complete the challenge!  Planning ahead and studying the Red City Bus schedule was key to successfully completing this fun event.

The group started off at the Waterfront, where they were divided into smaller groups. They received information packs containing maps, bus routing, navigational clues and questions they could answer en-route.

In staggered departures, the teams boarded the busses and followed the routing to locate the checkpoints at scenic hotspots and points of interest around the Peninsula.  At each stop they explored, discovered and learned more about their surroundings, while competing in a race against the clock.

Desert Storm time

Just 45 minutes north of Cape Town lies a pristine desert with glistening sand and awesome views of Table Mountain.  Here in an area called Atlantis Dunes Total Cameroun explored the area with sandboarding, volleyball, desert golf and played in the sand. This particular Desert Storm was organised for Total Cameroun and they happily jumped into the back of the oldtimer Jeeps for a tour filled with adrenaline. Driving never felt this good!

Kick back, relax, and enjoy

Old Mutual had an awesome braai cook off in one of the best braai spots in Cape Town: Wynberg Park. With over 22-hectares of ground, the park is a popular spot .They have several braai and picnic spots as well. It was a perfect day for a braai and of course some fun team building games. They played our famous Tin can Long Jump, Giant Sacks, Giant Jenga, the typical dutch game Spikerpoepen and Minefield. They had lots of fun during the games and the atmosphere was amazing. It was Master Chef time after the games and had made some delicious food!

A day at Spier Wine Farm

Even the hard workers of Hilton Hotel earn sometimes a day off. And what could be more fun than a team building day with Adventure Works? On March 15 they went to Spier farm in beautiful Stellenbosch for the Amazing Race. It’s the most famous wineland destination. Award winning wines , world class hotel and conferencing! They did some fun games like waterballoon elevator, minute to win it, eagle encounter, walk the plank and giant sacks. With smiles to their ears, laugh’s echoing through the wineland , the teams walked away enlightened and satisfied! Thank you Hilton Hotel for the awesome day!

Wine flies when you’re having fun!

If you come to Cape Town, you need to spend a couple of days in the Winelands. It’s one of the must see & do’s here. That’s the reason why Cambridge booked a Winelands Amazing Race ! The day began in the Table Hotel, where we did the warming ups. The group was already cheerfully, into their own personalized shirts, but after the warming up the atmosphere was already great! Everybody was ready for the Amazing Race!

Each team received a race book and maps to navigated their way around the spectacular Cape Winelands. On their way they completed the challenges like tobogganing, the beer and chocolate tasting, sheep herding and a blind wine tasting. They ended the day in the beautiful Grande Provence for the finale and announcement of winners and a delicious dinner.

Thanks Cambridge for the awesome day, you were a great group!

 

 

Braaimaster Competition

We had an awesome day with the South African Reserve Bank yesterday. Good weather, beautiful venue, awesome people and a delicious braai! We started the day off with some warming ups and energizing activities. The group were divided in teams and from that moment the games were started. They painted their faces and did the war cries for the team spirit. After the teambuilding games like blind paddle, giant sacks and spikerpoepen, there was time for the braaimaster competition!
