2022 has flown by and the festive season is already upon us. If you’re like most business leaders around the world, your primary goal this year was to improve your bottom line and return to some semblance of normal after surviving the effects of the pandemic. That probably means that planning your 2023 teambuilding was a task consistently put on the backburner.
With the new year right around the corner, we’re sure you could use a hand getting organised! You’re in luck… Dana Tours is here to take care of everything from transport and sourcing suitable conferencing venues to sorting out accommodation, team building activities and tours in magical Mozambique – a go-to MICE destination guaranteed to motivate your employees and get 2023 off to a great start.
Here’s some inspiration for team building activities and conference venues – all customisable based on your preferences, the size of your team and your budget.
The best team building activities in Mozambique
Fun and games on Macenta Beach
Macenta Beach is 30 kilometres north of Maputo and the perfect spot for a host of beach activities that guarantee a healthy dose of competitive spirit. Teams can take part in survival games, obstacle courses or a game of paintball. The end result is creating lifelong memories, which are sure to help solidify your workforce.
For obvious reasons, South Africans, in particular, can’t get enough of our signature potjie cook-offs! The aim is simple: Team up and use the best ingredients to create the most delicious potjie concoction your colleagues have ever tasted. The tastiest potjie wins the cook-off and bragging rights for the duration of the trip!
There’s something about a karaoke evening that encourages people to let loose, get to know one another and just enjoy themselves. After all, it’s always fun to bond over everyone’s love for music, and it’s even more entertaining to give the performance of your life (no matter how good or bad you sound!) and watch others give theirs. No matter what, it’s going to be an evening full of laughs, excitement, good conversation and great times.
Maputo Amazing Race
The goal of any team building activity is to facilitate bonding and, of course, seamless teamwork. This makes our signature Maputo Amazing Race a sure-fire winner. The activity kicks off with tasking teams with crafting their own brand using bandanas, shirts, flags or anything else that takes their fancy. They’ll then be faced with some challenges that require clear communication, leadership, delegation and quick-thinking to solve. The winners will receive a worthwhile reward at the prize-giving ceremony at the end of the race.
