The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour© is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. The first of its kind in Africa, the canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 30 meters above the forest floor...
Most platforms are located in giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees. The scenery and bird life is spectacular and professional guides provide interesting facts about the forest ecology during the 2½ to 3 hours.
BACK2BASE6 FACILITATED TEAMBUILDING
Back2Base6 is a Home Grown Stress Management and Life Skills Consultancy with its roots firmly planted in the Tsitsikamma.
Our Workshops draw from the parallels of Synergy and Interdependence found in all living organisms and raise individual and collective awareness that Interconnection is the foundation of existence. We celebrate our differences and acknowledge that each and every cell in our body, each and every member of our team has a unique and useful part to play in the whole.
We facilitate a process and balance of experiential learning, brainstorming, group activities and exercises, getting up close and personal with nature and fun, interactive games with a serious undertone - enabling individuals and groups to feel connected and creatively respond to opportunities and challenges in a less stressed environment.
Organizational stress often results from faulty communication, lack of clear goals and objectives, inadequate resources, misperceptions, reluctance to take risks and the inability to seek/accept help. Using the collaborative core values known as T.I.G.E.R.S (Trust, Interdependence, Genuineness, Empathy, Risk & Success) we explore team establishment, models of effective communication; empathy with others and our environment; the ability to identify and achieve group tasks; the courage to break through the fear barrier and the ecology of goal setting - ensuring that positive change occurs without negative side effects - for others, ourselves and the environment. Successful outcomes acknowledge and respect both the Goal and the Relationship.
Built around the unforgettable Eco-experiences of the Tsitsikamma - participating teams are given the space to learn by experience - to experience the power in the principle that "Working Together - Works". It is widely acknowledged that experiential learning produces the highest level of understanding and most effective application of that knowledge.
