Usually, when life gives you lemons, it is customary to make a delicious jug of lemonade; but when life throws a paintball gun or a quad bike at your toes, best you open the proverbial war doors and give Rambo a surprise sidekick costume for his birthday. Go camo with today’s Groupon: lunch and a 30-minute quad bike ride or 50-ball paintball game for R140 at Mogale Country Lodge.
Providing you with a roaring Mad Max-machine on four wheels and a helmet (‘cause if Mad Max had the dollars, he would have bought one himself), the marked Mogale quad bike course is yours to own, provided you adhere to the rules set by the instructors – because rules are only made to be broken when they won’t break you. Alternatively, find your nearest Rambo and exchange tips and tricks on how best to outwit enemies. Armed with a semi-automatic gun, protective mask and 50 little paintballs of five-second demise, a world of adrenaline rushes awaits you. With a battlefield strewn with fox-holes, trenches, hides and lush greenery to disclose yourself from the enemy, the fun-filled activity is bound to have you reenacting Saving Private Ryan with guns a blazing.
After a day in the trenches, change up old sayings from “back in ‘Nam” to “back on the Mogale battlefields” while recollecting war stories over a hearty lunch in the restaurant. With chefs preparing delicious cuisine, park your belly in one of the comfy restaurant seats, recover from the battle bruises and feed your aching stomach in style. Who knows, you might just catch a glimpse of sidekick, Rambo rumbling with the Mogale wildlife while you lap up your lunch in luxury.
Armour Fact: Starfish often seek protection from villains under crab bellies. The crabs have soft undersides, providing maximum comfort, while their hard outer-shells provide maximum protection. Sticking with the crab posse has maximum benefits for all.
