Go Wild with
Fun-loving groups will have a blast on our unique ‘Go Wild’ activity.
“The Go Wild activity was wonderful, I can see why this is a firm favourite.”
Take a leisurely pace, or go for it with a challenging team-building and competitive style. Go Wild normally involves 3 elements – a short wild food foray & bush tucker trial, a fire-lighting challenge and a bush-bow archery competition.
Discover some of the wild food that you can eat, and collect wild food for your bush tucker trial such as nettles, sorrel and jelly ear fungus! You can blindfold the bride-to-be or birthday boy for the finale which usually involves screaming, squirming & hysterical laughter!
During the fire-lighting challenge make fire without matches, the aim here is for everyone to achieve a flaming bundle of hay, which is quite an experience, a great photo opportunity, and a bit harder than Bear Grylls makes it look! You’ll also use a bush bow for a short, fun archery competition and games.
