A different kind of team building in Karen

What you need to know:

  • Their Kidnapped in Karen is different. It involves being kidnapped, handcuffed and locked in a darkened room. The objective is to make your escape. I can’t tell you more because it would give too much away. You have to use your common sense and your collective ingenuity – aided by a number of clues along the route to an escape.
  • Anyway, it really is not only challenging but also great fun. It costs Sh1,850 per person. Or you can splash out and, for Sh2,995, you can add a meal and a drink at the very nice Tamambo Restaurant.
  • The ideal group size is between four and seven. Putting aside the team building tag, it is something you can do with friends – or even with your family. If you want to know more about it, have a chat with our jailor and friendly host, Krush.

A few years ago, we were driving for our first office retreat at the Coast.
