Red Amazing Race with Amazing 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!

Awesome week for Canon in Cape Town

Last week, we had two trips with the 19 people of the big company Canon. On tuesday we had the Powerboat. With the wind in their hair, Canon departed from Millers Point and went to the cape of Storms with the powerboats. They went round the Cape of Storms in a powerboat for a truly unique way to appreciate the stunning views and rugged, dramatic beauty of Cape Point. The group were told stories of shipwrecks, sea life and ghost ships, all of which have made this peninsula notoriously famous. They have seen seals, but unfortunately no whales or dolphins.

And there was trip 2: The Desert Storm. A fun day in the Atlantis Dunes for this great group! These Cape Town dunes are a great venue for an action packed team build. . They explored the Atlantis Dunes by quad bike and sliding down the sand dunes on a sand board. Between the activities there was time to lay down and enjoying the view from the tent.

 

IACPO – BUILDING 6 X DROUGHT GARDENS

What an incredibly enthusiastic group! With only 2 hours, and 15 people, the IACPO group build 6 Sustainable, self watering, wicking garden beds in Masibambane elderly facility in Samora Machel. It wasn’t an easy task having to fill the beds with rubble and compost, and then planting the plants, and varnishing the beds. But with the help of the community, with almost 80 people in total – children and elders, it made filling and planting each bed a much lighter . The community intervention was overwhemingly incredible and the energy from the group influenced everyone around them. Thanks to the IACPO group, Masibambane elderly facility will use the produce for a soup kitchen in winter to warm the bellies of members of the community. The day ended off with a local choir thanking the group, and a boerworse braai to thank the locals for all their help. What an incredible day!

MasterChef time

Situated in the heart of the Durbanville Wine Valley, Hillcrest Wine Estate’s function and event venue, The Quarry, has been the home to many weddings, functions, festivals and concerts over the past years. Located in a rehabilitated quarry makes this one of Cape Town’s most unique venues, especially for team building activities and a braai cook off. The group was divided into teams where they started off with warm up activities: the famous War Cries. The teams were very original and showed their creative sides. Beside War Cries there were games like giant sack races, spikerpoepen, frisbees target shooting and many more. The group was so fanatic and enthusiastic so the atmosphere was quit good. After that it was Master Chef time!
