Race around the Zoo – Gorilla mission
Experience a truly unique out of Africa corporate program at Werribee Open Range Zoo.
Gorilla Mission provides organisations with a truly unique team-building program. The program offers incredible opportunities for workplaces to compare human and animal behaviours as well as group dynamics in an interactive zoo environment only 35kms from Melbourne. This highly professional program has been founded on Bruce Tuckman’s model of team dynamics and team building.
Participants will be greeted at Werribee Open Range Zoo by their personal guide who will facilitate the program. The facilitator will divide participants into groups to race each other around the zoo visiting one of the world’s largest gorilla exhibits, coming face to face with a pride of lions, discovering a family of hippos in their wetland home and meeting the fastest land animal, the cheetah. The mission will not be won on speed, but rather team work and attention to detail.
The Gorilla Mission is about piecing together the reason why gorillas are threatened with extinction in the wild. Teams will also learn how organisations and individuals can help save gorillas by recycling old mobile phones.
Following the race, if time permits, teams can take our standard safari tour, free of charge, to see some of Africa’s majestic animals, including giraffes, rhinos, antelope and zebras. Or book an upgrade to our Off Road Safari to get even closer to the animals on our stunning savannah in a specially designed open vehicle. For the ultimate out of Africa experience stay overnight at Slumber Safari to enjoy behind the scenes experiences, private tours, sumptuous meals and unique luxury accommodation.
