Interactive Team Survival Skills

Our interactive team survival programme takes your staff on an adventure they will never forget. Guided into the pristine local bush, they will be given challenges to stretch their thinking. Teams are set a series of survival challenges at stations to encourage team synergy, resilience, creativity, problem solving and fun.

Immersed in the natural bush, there are options for full day or half day excursions. We have access to a 10,000 acre exclusive block which also has an onsite lodge, so meals can be provided as well.  We can also work with you to develop overnight wilderness escapes and multi day events.

These challenges are original, and can be tailored to the outcomes you desire for your company culture.  The interactive sessions are skills that will stay with your staff for life. Most of team building activities are old news, but the Interactive Team Survival is a fresh new twist to bringing the team together.

Trout Fishing Competitions

Groups are set up in fishing teams. The boat with the most fish wins. After the winning team is announced, lunch is served and the winners get to enjoy their delicious trout served with their meal.

Kinloch Kawakawa Team Bonding Hike & Cruise

Dropped off in Kinloch Bay (20 min drive from Taupo), your team will be guided along the picturesque Kinloch to Kawakawa Bay bush walk. You will then be collected by a private boat and as the group cruise back to Taupo, they will enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch, fishing and a scenic trip taking in the Maori Rock Carvings.

Lake Taupo Cycle Cruise

Take in the splendours of Taupo on the top rated rides of the country along the lake front and back down to the Boat Harbour. Then, after working up an appetite, let the team climb aboard a private charter boat to enjoy an afternoon of nibbles, fishing and clay bird shooting.

Cultural experience tours

Let your team learn about the history of Lake Taupo and the local Maori tribe Tuwharetoa through an enriching cultural experience. A powhiri on the wharf followed by cultural entertainment can be arranged with our amazing local cultural group Taurikura.

Whatever you can imagine, we can create. So please bring your ideas and let us help you create your team an ‘Experience of a lifetime!’

Testimonials from happy clients

A fantastic team building exercise.  Will take you outside your comfort zone and open your eyes to how amazing nature is.

Peter is a modern day version of MacGyver – what he doesn’t know about surviving in the wild isn’t worth knowing.

If you thought Batman had a cool utility belt – make sure you check out Pete’s!

Peter gave fantastic examples of how to use an array of different fauna and flora to keep yourself safe if ever you find yourself stranded in the bush.

We were looking for somewhere to launch our new fishing gear and Chris Jolly Outdoors was just perfect! It was great because our guests could try out our new rods right there and then.

Harry Gilbert

We were wanting to take some of our VIP clients out and luxury boat Levante was prefect for that. Cosy, luxurious and intimate. Great service from Chris Jolly Outdoors too. Our clients really enjoyed themselves.

Mary Chapman

Quite a few of our staff are keen anglers so we thought a day out on the boat fishing and BBQ would do well as a team building exercise. Some even did stand up paddle boarding and clay shooting which was fun. Highly recommend. Definitely better than being stuck in office.
