Paintball games in Benoni

[Do you feel like a lot of fun, exercise, or maybe you have a score to settle with your friends.

Well look no further come and join us for a fun filled day at Mufasa Backpackers shooting each other with paint, ducking and diving behind obstacles and get your adrenaline pumping.

Price: R100 for 200 balls including gun hire and gas refile, or R250 for 500 balls.

Please bring your own old clothes.

Paintball is a sport[2][3][4] in which players compete; in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by tagging them with capsules containing water soluble dye and gelatin shell outside (referred to as paintballs) propelled from a device called a paintball marker (commonly referred to as a paintball gun). Paintballs are composed of a non-toxic, biodegradable, water soluble polymer. The game is regularly played at a sporting level with organized competition involving worldwide leagues, tournaments, professional teams, and players.[5][6] Paintball technology is also used by military forces, law enforcement, para-military and security organizations to supplement military training, as well as playing a role in riot response, and non-lethal suppression of dangerous suspects.

Games can be played on very hard floors in indoor fields, or outdoor fields of varying sizes. A game field is scattered with natural or artificial terrain, which players use for tactical cover. Game types in paintball vary, but can include capture the flag, elimination, ammunition limits, defending or attacking a particular point or area, or capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area. Depending on the variant played, games can last from seconds to hours, or even days in scenario play.

The legality of paintball varies among countries and regions. In most areas where regulated play is offered, players are required to wear protective masks, and game rules are strictly enforced. Sometimes masks are not required.

Lion Park Johannesburg

Lion Park Johannesburg

Tour Itinerary

Tour Highlights

For a perfect cultural and wildlife experience in South Africa we have created the Lion Park and Pretoria Tour.

In the morning we head out to the Lion Park. Our registered tour guide takes you on a tour through the Lion Park, a natural habitat only 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg. The park is home to more than 85 lions and other carnivores like the cheetah, hyena and wild dog.

Lion Park is home to the rare white lion, so make sure you bring your camera for some exclusive shots. At Cub World you can cuddle baby lions, how cute is that? And when you are not frightened by tall animals with long necks, you can also feed the giraffes and ostriches!

We continue our tour with a Pretoria city experience. Pretoria is the capital of South Africa and therefore full of historic sites. We visit the Union Buildings, headquarters of the government. The buildings are beautifully situated in terraced gardens, trough which you can enjoy an idyllic walk.

Another major attraction on this tour is the Voortrekker Monument. This monument is of great significance to many Afrikaans speaking South Africans, there it stands for Afrikaner Nationalism. The monument is in the shape of a big stone cube. The interior walls depict the story of the Great Trek, a mass movement of Afrikaner Boers who resented British rule.

Next interesting site on our tour is the Paul Kruger House Museum. Kruger National Park is named after Paul Kruger. Learn more about this fascinating man and his life. The house displays furniture and personal items of the Kruger family.

Pretoria has character in its buildings and during this city architecture tour you will be given ample opportunity to ask your guide about the history behind the buildings and culture. We visit Church Square with prominent buildings like the Ou Raadsaal, Palace of Justice and Capital Theatre.

Big Cat Farm Volunteer program

BIG CAT FARM VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

At the Wild Cat Farm it is all about the animals. We believe in the rights and protection of animals.  The farm is home to a variety of wild animals such as lions, cheetahs, servals, caracals, %tagblack footed cats, the mischievous meercats and more.  The farm acts as a home to wild cats that are not able to be released back into the wild, as well as a nursery for cubs that are brought to the farm by neighboring breeders to be hand raised before they are relocated onto reserves.

The farm is currently applying to become an animal sanctuary in the Free State region and you can be a part of this amazing transition. We provide a safe haven to wild animals who are in need of a home and ensure that injured and traumatized animals receive proper medical care.

The farm offers you an opportunity to work / interact with the animals and gain exposure to all activities from cleaning, building enclosures, feeding, playing with the animals and much more, as well as the opportunity to unwind in a relaxing Free State setting.

Project Highlights

• Work hands on with the big cats such as lions and cheetahs
• Work hands on with small cats such as caracals and servals
• Live a few meters from the lions and cheetah enclosures Experience firsthand all aspects of the animals’ life
• Be part of a very passionate team
• Learn about Conservation and Africa’s wild animals Experience hand rearing of wild cat youngsters
• Experience the farm animals living free amongst the wild animals
• Interact and play with wild animals

What’s Included

• Return Transfer from Johannesburg Airport
• All meals
• Accommodation
• 24 hour support and supervisor
• Donation to the project

The animals that live permanently on the farm are animals that were rescued and can’t be released for many reasons, usually because of injury and an inability to hunt these animals that are kept in enclosures and used for educating the public and raising awareness. Our passion is to take care of the animals and ensure their health and safety. The farm is a nursery for new born cubs and a sanctuary for injured animals, which 99% of the time get rehabilitated and released. Those that can’t get released will stay on the farm. It is our duty to protect and preserve all animal species and all volunteer help would be greatly appreciated and targeted towards this cause.The volunteers will contribute by physically allowing the farm to care for more animals.  As we are working to become the only official sanctuary in the Free state we need to clear the farm of all alien vegetation, make it suitable for the indigenous wildlife, and create enclosures for animal rehabilitation.All volunteer donations will be used towards the upkeep of the animals and creating the sanctuary.

Volunteer Tasks

Volunteers will help with the daily running of the farm duties which include:

• Fence patrols-daylight guided walks around the farm to check areas of the electric fence which require fixing
• Road maintenance
• Cleaning of enclosures
• Educational tours for guests
• Alien plant removal
• Building and extending an enclosure for the new animal sanctuary
• Feeding and socializing with the animals and cubs
