t   About the Gallivanting Goose?

We are a company that specialises in providing corporate team building activities for work, group adventures, and city exploration through our unique mobile scavenger hunts.

Our events, also known as ‘wild goose chase games’, take place in Cape Town, its surrounding towns, wine farms, in Johannesburg and other parts of South Africa where we can custom build according to your needs.

With a wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of these locations, our scavenger hunts are both entertaining and educational, offering a competitive experience that is tracked in real-time.

Participants work together as a team to complete challenges through our app, promoting creativity, teamwork, communication, strategy, and problem-solving skills.


Z   Our Goals

  • Deliver team building activities, group adventures or city exploration where everyone joins in and gets involved.
  • Eliminate all the awkward moments and keep participants engaged, having a good laugh and stretching their brains. In this kind of environment you can start to build real connections and enjoy memorable team building activities for work.
  • Honour your decision to take part by providing the best experience and making you the undisputed champion of your office!
  • Provide a kick-butt platform for marketers, bosses, managers, attractions or brands to install knowledge in brains around their company values or practices, or deliver a message and information about their product in a unique and memorable way, to their targeted audience, through customised games.
  • Most importantly, to help people connect in a very real and impressionable way – often with good laughter involved! We are social creatures after all.

h   Our Story

Founded by Larissa Sparg in 2016, The Gallivanting Goose was created from a passion for travel, adventure, and people – not to mention a desire to see others having fun and connecting.

Larissa saw an opportunity to create a unique and engaging way for people to explore and learn about the cities they live in or visit, while also promoting teamwork, showing off the best of a landmark and building relationships.

Using her deep knowledge of some of South Africa’s very special places, history and culture as well as her love of a good laugh, Larissa developed mobile scavenger hunt games that incorporate elements of competition, problem-solving, and creativity, all while having fun and experiencing a sense of adventure.

“To Larissa, you covered all properties fantastically! Even those attending from attractions learned a thing or two that they were not aware of. You took time to analyse our brief and as a result produced an excellent product for the educational. Well done for being a great ambassador of the Big 6 and for representing all of us with distinction. You truly made the attraction visits engaging and educational!”

“Thank you so much for all your organising. The teams had an absolute blast.  When each team heard the other team was doing the activity they were all so excited and raved about the experience.  I am preparing a wall in our department to put up pics of the teams.  It has been absolutely great working with you too and wish you all the best. “

“What fun we had yesterday! Thank you for your time and all the effort put in to a successful day. I have not seen the pics but the management team probably have already, as I heard them giggling from their conference room just after I sent the images. I will also promote your team building to the other department groups in the office.”

“We liked being outdoors and the game allowed for all to get involved. We loved the creativity of the game as it encourages engagement and allows one to think outside the norms. I would recommend Stellenbosch as the best course as the town is small and intimate. It was fun and very team friendly. I really liked how the game engaged our head, heart and hands…lots of fun. it was cool all round. We enjoyed that it allowed us to work as a team and to express our creativity under pressure. Loved the competitiveness of it. Fun, outdoors, healthy competition. We learnt something new and had many laughs!”

“Once again, thank you for the amazing experience! The team really enjoyed it, even though they were exhausted afterwards. I have shared the lovely, or rather lively pics with the team and also the ones who could not join, so maybe there is enough FOMO for us to do it again :)”
