About Scott’s Teambuilding Adventures

20 Years of Empowering People!

Founded in 1997, Scott’s Teambuilding Adventures (formerly known as Spirit of Adventure Corporate) is a corporate and private team building organisation based in Durban, South Africa. While we call the KwaZulu-Natal province home, our teambuilding courses have regularly taken us to the Gauteng province, as well as far-flung destinations such as Mauritius and Singapore.

Scott’s Teambuilding Venues

Scott’s Teambuilding Adventures will design and facilitate a teambuilding course at a venue of your choice – whether it be at a hotel, bush lodge or even at your business premises! Our home base is a specially designed camp at Shongweni Dam on the outskirts of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. This 1,700-hectare reserve boasts over 200 species of birds, and mammals include buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, hartebeest, and several species of antelope. Accommodation is available at a number of venues in the area. For professional teambuilding courses in the Gauteng area, we have access to a specialised safari camp base near the Olifantsnek Dam in the Magaliesberg Mountains.
