DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT
We don’t do team building, we help people inspire themselves
When you read the words “team building”, you probably visualise boring whiteboards and circular tables in sterile boardrooms.
Forget it. Since Ben Southall founded Best Life Adventures in 2017, his mantra has been “Adventure and the Great Outdoors are the ultimate business mentors”.
By taking on challenges and embracing discomfort in wilderness environments, we build resilience, resolve and confidence whilst improving our problem-solving skills and connection with colleagues. Nothing nurtures self-improvement or strengthens bonds quite like an adventure challenge.
Best Life Adventures tailor and lead expeditions to suit the unique needs and objectives of our corporate clients, from local day trips to extended international adventures. Whether you’re after an unforgettable staff incentive program, client entertainment solution or team bonding experience, we will design an adventure that reaps ongoing results and ignites long-term goodwill.
If your team is fed up with screen-time and need a digital detox, never get to see each other as they work remotely or want to celebrate shared success, we have the solution.
WHY CAMPFIRE CONVERSATIONS?
To break down barriers and forge connections at a deeper level, there’s nothing better than campfire conversations after a day of physical adventure in the Great Outdoors.
For any business, this strategy works. Lunches in the boardroom don’t cut it anymore. They only result in surface level interactions.
Best Life Adventures deliver bespoke experiences in wilderness environments to help corporate teams disconnect from screens and reconnect in nature.
We’re here to supply more than just the wood and matches. Keen to schedule a campfire outing for your team?
how they feel about us
HR Manager – Ulton Accountants
The adventure injected energy, ideas and motivation into the group and our Venturers returned to the office better connected and ready to take on anything.
Darren De Jong
Goodwood Financial Solutions
Our annual Best Life Adventure is talked about all year long as the team either reminisces on the fun we had or discusses with nervous energy the adventure ahead.
The Best Life adventures are designed by Ben and his team to be a challenge for our team members, to push everyone and their completion marks a real personal achievement. The team are always amazingly prepared, extremely caring, bloody great at what they do, and also a lot of fun to be with.ﾠ
General Manager, Data #3
Finding an adventure mentor that aligned with Data#3’s brand values, understood our business and delivered bespoke experiences for the team was a challenge until we started working with Best Life Adventures.
Founder, Tribe Global Ventures
Venturer Whitsundays gave me clarity on major life decisions.
Trekking to Everest Base Camp taught me how to ask for help, and Venturer Mongolia taught me how to slow down – to do half as much in order to double my impact.

A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
Adventure isn’t just about crossing the Arctic in the fastest time or climbing Mount Everest…
it’s a state of mind
Hi, I’m Ben Southall, Founder of Best Life Adventures.
We don’t do ‘Team-Building’. We don’t do average.
We deliver expeditions and experiences to corporate teams, charities, and private groups through tough physical, mental and cultural challenges in wilderness environments disconnected from the burden of modern technology.
Our Campfire Conversations, Bare Bone Boardrooms and Territory Mapping experiences allow teams to naturally form, bond and bind helping individuals discover the best version of themselves.
It might not be for everyone, but for those looking to take the risk with a completely different way of building a cohesive, engaged team, we can offer something no other adventure company provides.
Are your tribe ready for a Best Life Adventure?
