Beach and Bush Adventures, one of South Africa's top corporate teambuilding and event organising operators, offers a variety of teambuilding and activity options, including the uShaka Challenge Teambuild - a highly entertaining and engaging corporate teambuilding activity that takes place onsite at popular team building venue Durban's uShaka Marine World.

The uShaka Challenge team build is a mini "Amazing Race Team Build" held at uShaka Marine World, Durban in South Africa. Get wet, meet a pirate, build a raft, test your artistic talents and attempt to attain the title of "boat captain".

The uShaka Challenge is one of Beach and Bush's most established teambuilds and has been successfully run with groups as diverse as Unilever, BMW, MTN, Vodacom, Thompson Tours, Standard Bank, Nedbank, Old Mutual, Momentum Life, ABSA, Liberty Life, Mearsk Logistics and many other corporate and government groups.


The appeal of the uShaka Challenge Teambuild is that it's low impact and the focus is on fun while, the challenges are specifically structured to encourage fundamental team building outcomes such as improved communication, cohesion and respect for roles and norms. Ushaka has become a successful team building venue enjoyed by all taking part in this challenge.

Activity Options: you can choose to either do a 'dry' or 'wet' uShaka Challenge Teambuild, and activity options include the following examples and much more.


Bribe the Pirate: bribe the pirate on the ship with either coke or rum for the next clue.

Too Cool for School: wax a surfboard on the beach.

Polaroid Camera Aquarium: find a clue situated in the aquarium, take a Polaroid picture as proof of finding it to get the next clue.

Help Bongani Lifesaving Challenge: using a rope and kayaks you'll have to perform a rescue operation either in the surf or in the canals (physical).

Wimpy Challenge: have to make something and eat it.


Lazy River Catch Up Race: find a clue in the river running through the park.

Snorkel Lagoon Treasure Hunt: find a clue hidden in the lagoon.

Chicken Run Plunge: go down a 90 degree slide holding an egg without breaking it.

Kayak Race: racing around buoys on the surf (physical).

The uShaka Challenge teambuild is a flexible team building event that can be structured to be run either as a race (as in the Amazing Race) or as a more static concept like Fear Factor. With a large group, it is usually recommended that a combination of the 2 be applied. Ie: Each group is given a number of tasks to complete, some of these are time based, whereas with others the goal is simply to finish.
