  • Makalali Team Building Waterberg Region - Bela-Bela
    Makalali Team Building

    The Makalali Team Building program has been designed to accommodate smaller groups that want to have fun together, but at the same time increase the efficiency of their teamwork.

    All our activities are within the capabilities of the average healthy person, but definitely require a group effort in order to ensure their successful completion.

    When booking such a program, a specialised Team Building Itinerary will be put together. Individualized team builders are the norm and we require as much info as possible, how trivial it might seem.

    This will allow your group or party the opportunity to experience the Magic of Makalali by participating in the various game viewing activities. Accommodation is also available!
