It is really hard to keep a business going in South Africa at the moment. Political tension, corruption, high fuel and food prices, retrenchments, strikes ... oh the list goes on and on. Beam me up Scotty to a happier place. If only ...
The reality for most of us is that we are here to stay and despite everything negative that is going on, South Africa is a beautiful country with wonderful people who just want to get on with life and bring up their families and enjoy time with friends.
South Africans are resilient, innovative and brave. From big business to small entrepreneurs, we also have the farmers who live by the "boer maak 'n plan" (farmers make a plan) theory, we have millions of people living in informal settlements surviving by setting up a hair salon on the pavement or selling fruit and veggies to passers by those who sell anything and everything at traffic lights.
It is when we are in the deepest hole that we fight hardest. Unless we win the Lotto we have no choice.
Beat the winter blues, get the blood pumping and have some fun. We are lucky at Paddle Power that we can raft throughout the year.
With crisp early mornings, the days warm up beatifully between 10am and 3pm. Not a cloud in bright blue skies.
Come and join us for a 90 minute rafting trip and a day of fun on the Crocodile River less than 45 minutes from Pretoria, Midrand, Randburg, Sandton and Krugersdorp.
Recently The Extraordinary Group (TEG) arranged a week long training series for Mazda who were launching their new BT-50 vehicles. It was a great priviliege to have the 250 people from the Mazda National Sales Teams having fun at Paddle Power.
TEG had organised the event to be based on an Amazing Race theme. Paddle Power was used for 2 activities - a river game and Crossbow.
Give them an unusual and exciting gift for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and just to tell them you love them! A Paddle Power voucher of course.
Vouchers are available from R200 upwards which may be used towards payment for the following options:

A friction device also known as a "descender" allows the rope to be released in a controlled manner.
When done under the supervision of a qualified and well trained abseil supervision, abseiling is an extremely safe, most rewarding and memorable adventure that enables people to overcome their perceived fears of heights.
Come and spend a couple of hours at Paddle Power, challenging your colleagues and friends to see who is most accurate in the ancient art of Crossbow.
This activity requires a minimum of 6 people booking together as a group and is ideal for corporate team builds, bachelor parties and other functions.
The traditional bow and arrow required enormous skill, physical strength, years of training and those who were top bowmen were considered a superior caste.
