Ask the oldest person you know if they have heard of Simba and you’d probably get a surprising story from way back when! Simba’s seen some radical changes in South Africa since they first launched Simba chips in 1957! As amazing as it may sound, this billion Rand company was born out of the vision of an old lady from the eastern Cape, Mrs Greyvenstein. Affectionately known as OumaGreyvenstein, this loveable and caring grandma planted a seed that would one day germinate into a snack empire that spanned all across Africa and became an important part in the world’s biggest snack and beverage company.
Hidden amongst the green rolling hills and savannah-like grasslands of the 275-hectare Modderfontein Reserve, lies Val Bonne Country estate — a captivating event venue that offers unbelievable views, superior food options and efficient event management — and just a short drive from Sandton too!
The activity starts with the teams having to find the ingredients and utensils. Once found the game begins whereby the teams are able to barter against each other for anything they may still need. Now time for the main activity, who can cook the best potjie! This activity is great for building team spirit.
TBAE's interactive drumming team building event is an excellent tool for stress release, group bonding, team building and synchronizing of thought processes in the Business environment. In Africa, drumming has always been the most fundamental group activity for communication. For centuries, people have used drumming to release stress, raise their spirits, enhance clarity and focus, and develop co-operation and community bonds. Group drumming is a non-competitive activity where each person, regardless of age, sex, race or position within the company has an equal part to play.
