GARDEN ROUTE: MILD TO WILD CORPORATE GROUP ECO-ADVENTURES

The African Edu-Eco Wizard team offers a number of Experiential Mild-to-Wild Eco-Adventure activities on the Garden Route designed to challenge teams and individuals in unfamiliar terrain with unconventional circumstances at appropriate adventure venues of choice.

Passive to active adventure learning activities offer groups the opportunity to provide motivational spirit building initiatives whereby the staff escapes the rigours of the corporate environment to enjoy the adventurous spirit of Africa in a playful yet in an outcome based manner albeit in a passive manner. A strong team is an essential factor in the survival of any company. Experiential adventure can and does provide powerful learning experiences in the areas of identification and development of leadership potential; problem solving; decision making; interpersonal communication and cross cultural communications.

We utilize well-structured outdoor experiential adventure experiences, supervised by qualified adventure and wilderness facilitators to provide an excellent groundwork to help participants to bridge back to the work environment enthused by their experiences. The adventure experiences are tailored to meet the developmental needs of the group.

The duration of the various activities is largely dependent on the available time your company has to conduct such a program or programs as well as the budget available to perform such activities.  The programmed adventures are time oriented which can be incorporated into an all inclusive tailor-made program.

Experiential adventure is a means whereby people are exposed to environments not part of their daily routine. Participants are put into situations where they challenge themselves as well as develop co-operative interdependent relationships with their peers and business associates. It is also a means of stimulating team awareness, fun and effectiveness. Each activity is measured regarding the resultant effect of team orientation and the contribution of each individual to the success of the activity. The level at which the passive adventure activities are offered, ranges from soft adventure which is low impact. It is with this view in mind that the following Adventure programs have been devised. Adventure activities are conducted at venues along the Garden Route between Goukamma in the west to Natures Valley in the east.

Groups can be handled with a 1:12 facilitator to participant ratio being observed on water-based activities and 1:16 facilitator ratio on land-based walking activities. Our instructors are very highly qualified, survivors in their own right, educators and teachers who love sharing and teaching what they know.
