Samuel Krief 04.04.2024 Team Building In Marrakech

Enjoy a corporate retreat in southern Morocco with activities tailored for your team. There are a multitude of activities you can engage in on-site to unite your colleagues. Between cooking classes focused on exotic dishes, practicing various traditional games, and discovering the wonders of the ochre city, your group will not be disappointed with the trip. Cohesion among all participants will be ensured after just a few hours spent in Marrakech.

Why not a hike to explore Marrakech?

A stop in the Agafay Desert is mandatory to reach the mountains surrounding the city. Whether by quad bike or 4x4, explore the trails leading to the discovery of magnificent landscapes against a blue sky backdrop. As night falls, enjoy a dinner organized around a campfire, under the stars, and take pleasure in various performances: Gnaoua music, fire-breathers, etc. You will spend the night in an authentic traditional tent, with added comfort. The numerous hiking trails starting from Marrakech are perfect for boosting endurance and teamwork among your colleagues. It will be an opportunity to appreciate the hospitality of the villagers and admire the terraced agriculture.

Back in town, get acquainted with the kasbah, a Berber architectural citadel, which invites urban hikes to delve into local history. Walking through the streets of Marrakech gives you the chance to admire the beautifully preserved traditional architecture. Exploring the kasbah is also among the ideal activities for stocking up on souvenir items. This district is indeed famous for its traditional souks and typical small restaurants. Spices, local outfits, and other artisanal treasures are sure to captivate you. Finally, mountain biking is also one of the most popular leisure activities among team building activities. Your teams will be spoilt for choice!

  1. How about a Moroccan culinary workshop?

Opt for an original team building activity during your corporate trip to Morocco. To break new ground, you can invite your team to get acquainted with Moroccan recipes by getting behind the stoves! Cooking classes are open to everyone, from beginners to culinary arts enthusiasts.

In groups of 3 or 5, depending on the number of participants, you will learn to prepare one of the famous local dishes. All necessary ingredients and cooking utensils are provided for each group to make, for example, an organic tagine. Each team member will have a specific task to ensure the dish’s success so that the group wins.

For those with little experience in this field, a Moroccan chef will support you and offer valuable advice throughout the class. A Moroccan chef will lead the game and judge the groups on taste, the artistic aspect of the dish, and, of course, solidarity and exchange during the preparation. The goal of such a team-building activity in Marrakech is to strengthen cohesion among colleagues, besides immersing in the Oriental culture.

3. How to discover Marrakech from the sky?

Exploring the city from a hot air balloon is a magical experience to share with your team. It will be possible to spend a bit more time at a specific location so that your guide can explain in detail the history and uniqueness of each village or city. This will be an opportunity for each participant to listen and pay attention to others.

Zip-lining is another way to fly over the city to behold panoramas overlooking the canyons and red mountains of Toukbal. A professional in the field will explain to each participant the safety rules and procedures for the descent.

If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground while still seeking thrills, opt for the suspension bridges over the gorges. This type of activity in a team-building offsite teaches dealing with risk and danger, but most importantly, learning to trust your partners.

4. How about mixing play and relaxation?

The souks of Marrakech are grouped by specialty in the main square to display their goods. Beyond its commercial purpose, this place is a true showcase of Morocco’s craftsmanship and traditions.

Another team-building activity not to miss is a rally in the souks of the Medina, allowing you to mix pleasure with a change of scenery. The challenge will guide you through the market to purchase specific products and reach the final destination. An adventure to share without moderation while enjoying the Moroccan artisans’ craftsmanship along the displays. Every team member will have a say in directing the group and participating in acquiring the item.

After the day’s challenges, relax in a superb Marrakechi traditional hammam. Competent staff will take care of your entire team, offering you a relaxing break you’ll deeply enjoy. Do not hesitate to enjoy the benefits of these Oriental baths that completely free you from stress. Enjoy good moments of relaxation as a group to get to know the other team members better.
