Team building activities teach groups to work together, build trust and follow directions. By successfully navigating their way through mazes, team members will get to know each other and learn leadership skills. A maze is an intricate system of paths in which there are many obstacles that can't be seen beforehand. Teams work together to get through the maze, which requires concentration, logical thinking, risk taking and knowing how to support colleagues under pressure.
Team building exercises with mazes help to build trust and encourage group thinking and problem solving.
Venue: Honeydew, Johannesburg
We currently offer 2 different options:
A: Giant Maze event:
Teamwork and group thinking come to the fore as the giant maze activity combines navigation with problem solving. Various stations located throughout the maze require teams to stop and work together to answer questions or complete tasks. The difficulty of the questions can be adjusted to suit any age group or line of work.
You will be doing our Elemental Reed Maze - With 1.8km of pathways and 5 secret gardens, themed on the 4 Elements : Air, Earth Water and Fire; and, the Garden of Reflection. Played with a general knowledge quiz to answer, this maze is very popular.
Duration: Teams generally come to the maze for a half-day activity during the week, usually arriving around 12noon. Bookings are for a 4 hour slot.
Format: Staff are divided into teams of 4 people per team. This can be facilitated, or you can organise the teams.
B: Enhanced option:
Additional facilitated maze events combine with the Giant Maze; see above, to make more of the teambuilding opportunity. This is done for groups under 50 people.
Duration: This event runs for 6 hours, with teams usually arriving around 9am and departing at 3pm.
