It floats with effortless grace in the centre of a pond offering picture-perfect views of the gardens, the manor house and the distant Bottelary Hills and Simonsberg. The Pavilion can host an intimate ceremony accommodating up to 20 people and for larger parties, guests can be seated on the surrounding lawn and witness the bridal couple cross the walkway as a symbolic start of their new journey together.

Add to you conference to create a refreshing and unique team building experience:

Hazendal Drumming + Fire Cooking Experience

The heartbeat is the original rhythm that is imprinted in one’s soul. Rhythm has the ability to connect us with ourselves, as well as with our fellow human beings.

Group drumming is a powerful way in which to create meaningful bonds without having to say a word. Communication happens through the making of music together. It is automatically collaborative, intuitive and empowering. Those that are normally shy, reserved or reluctant to speak can find a different voice through the drum, while those that are normally the talkers, can learn to listen and harmonise with others. The lessons learned through drumming are both subtle and profound, and it is nearly impossible to leave a drum circle without some new awareness or insights.

Hazendal drumming is held outdoors (weather permitting) alongside a burning fire. The glowing flames not only add to the mood but also set the stage for a delicious open fire creative food experience enjoyed once the last drum beat has sounded.

R600 pp, duration 3 hours, minimum 20 guests

Hazendal Archery and Barbeque experience

Archery is a fun and challenging team building event which anyone can master quickly. Instructors will be on hand to show delegates the basics on how to safely handle the equipment. Once everyone is confident, the participants are divided into teams competing against each other. Afterwards, an individual shoot out can also be arranged. This team building event is a memorable experience, fostering healthy competition and a new set of skills.

This ancient sport of the warriors provides a change of pace, where skill, judgement and a level head count more than adrenalin. Let Hazendal create a fun and interactive event, where your group will shoot many arrows, bond and laugh.

The session will be followed by a Hazendal delicious BBQ Taco Experience.

R700 pp, duration 3 hours, minimum of 25 guests

Charity Bike Build Team Building

The Charity Bike Build is a fantastic way to experience the joy of giving while still completing a meaningful and challenging team building activity.

Teams work together to construct bikes that will be donated to a deserving charity. The format of an event is a race to see which team can put the biked together the quickest. Groups are given the tools and guidance of a mechanic as they race against the clock to complete their bike first.

The bikes are then presented to a choice of charity initiatives. A delicious Hazendal Picnic experience will follow in our Bike Park.

R500 pp, duration 3 hours

Customised team building, fashion shows, car launches or private birthday parties, Hazendal’s range of facilities and spaces coupled with an experienced coordination team will ensure that your event is an unforgettable occasion.
