So why not have a lovely dinner with your team at The Blue Café.

Segways will get the entire team excited. What’s awesome about them is that they move intuitively with your body, which you’ll learn to do in a 30-minute lesson at the start. Once you’ve mastered this, there’s the whole of Spier to explore – imagine gliding through glowing green vineyards, 360° views of mountains. If the team loves a bit of rivalry, opt for the Segway Soccer activity, which ends with a soccer “shoot-out”. If the entire crew is not convinced, there are numerous great activities, from spa treatments to picnicking and wine tasting, that have been paired with Segway Tours.

Pitch it to your boss: This is active, but not sweaty-active, plus it’s adaptable for the whole team (and there’s the best wines to taste afterwards).

Capetonians love gin, it's no secret and what better way to celebrate your team’s wins for the year than over a shared bottle of personalised gin.

Plus, if you'd like to taste exceptional gins produced by master distillers, the distillery is home to brands such as 5 Pence, Ora, Enigma and Dragon Brewing Co., all of which are available for tastings at Distillery & Union in Woodstock

Pitch it to your boss: You get to take home your own bottle of gin and show it off to your friends and family.

If the best way to get your colleagues to gel is through an activity, here’s another idea: an epic road trip through Cape Town. Kiff Kombi Tours is perhaps the city’s ultimate company year-end experience as it’s so much fun, but chilled at the same time. The Gin Jol, Craft Beer Safari and Wine, Beer & Biltong Safari that takes you from Cape Town to picturesque Stellenbosch are recommended. These offer fun activities such as clay-shooting, paintball and bubble soccer. However, you can also custom-make a tour.

Pitch it to your boss: Kiff Kombis is all about good vibes, plus it’s as active or chilled as you want it to be. Get your bosses in the mood, let them watch this video of Kiff Kombis’ one-of-a-kind tours .
