In March 2016, the Faircity Sales and Revenue Team hit the road for a 4-day 4×4 adventure in Ponta do Ouro, Mozambique. It was the fourth annual Sales Convention for the team and the first time that they crossed borders for the event.
Group Revenue Manager, Monique Cardona drove a 4×4 for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. She said, “It was a fantastic activity to build team spirit. Although it was not set up as a race, team members were getting very excited and competitive on the road. I would definitely recommend 4×4 adventures for corporate team building. After coming back everyone was talking about the trip and they still haven’t stopped. It is the first time this has happened over the past four years, so I can safely say it was a success!”
Monique was responsible for organising the 4×4 team building trip and would do it all again for the following six reasons:
#1 Super-easy to arrange
I called South Africa 4×4 Rental Specialists with the number of people that would be participating. They recommended the type and number of vehicles required for our 4×4 teambuilding event. Their fleet includes Land Rover Defenders and Toyota Hilux Double Cabs.
#2 Fully equipped vehicles
Everything we needed was on-board the 4×4 vehicle, so we didn’t have to take anything along except for an adventurous spirit. They provided GPS units, tents, chairs, tables, fridges, kitchen equipment, cutlery and crockery, pots and pans, mechanical equipment, camp shower and first aid kits amongst many other necessary (and nice-to-have) things. Items were conveniently stored in crates for easy unpacking and repacking. South Africa 4×4 Rentals are truly 4×4 fanatics and have thought of every convenience so that we didn’t have to.
#3 Comprehensive training provided
South Africa 4×4 Rentals prepared us for our 4×4 teambuilding event with an hour of training including safety precautions. It didn’t matter if we were seasoned 4×4 drivers or newbies, their expert instructors took us through everything we would need to do to enjoy a safe, yet exhilarating 4×4 adventure.
#4 Insurance is sorted
South Africa 4×4 Rentals gave us the option to add Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance so we could have peace of mind whilst bundu bashing. Driving through the bush is somewhat rougher than driving through the urban jungle, so it’s definitely safer to be covered for any mishaps.
#5 Wide variety of trails
Director of South Africa 4×4 Rentals, Carel Pienaar, has vast experience of 4×4 trails across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share with participants. There are fantastic 4×4 trails suitable for all skill levels. Carel gave his recommendations based on our group profile and budget.
#6 Excellent for team building
It takes team work to make sure that everything goes smoothly on a 4×4 adventure. Delegation was a great way to spread the load as there were many different aspects that had to be taken care of. As the teams worked together to complete tasks, relationships were strengthened and there was a deeper appreciation of what each person brings to the team.
