Potjiekos Competition Team Building at the Johannesburg Zoo

09h00 Quick Breakfast and Coffee at Stages Restaurant, Johannesburg Zoo
1 Egg, 2 rashers bacon, spicy beans, skinny fries & toast. Fruit, yogurt & muesli for Vegan and Halal, or order from the Stages Menu. Ice Breakers and Funny Group Activities. We will divide everybody in ±10 people per team.

09h15 Survivor Challenge
Teams have to race from “one island to the next island”, and without feet touching the “water”. This is a race against the whistle, and teams get points for each person that landed on an “island”. This event is soaked with adrenaline – however, the obstacle course is only 50 meters long.

  • Carpet Race – teams have to jump forward in synch to propel to the next “island”.
  • Plank Race – everybody have to walk in sync to the next “island”
  • Sack Race – try and get as many people across at once
  • Bubble Wrap – teams climb in a huge conveyer belt made from Bubble Wrap, and have to walk in sync to the next “island”.
  • Island Hopping – each team only get a few carpets, and must walk across by stepping only on the carpets. Meaning, the last person in the que must always pass the last carpet to the front to keep the motion going to the finish line.
