Mini vs Maxi - Are you up for it?

With the Mini vs Maxi Adventure across the Eastern Cape challenge only a couple of days away the excitement is mounting.  The more I think about it the more fidgety I am to get going.  So far we don't know what is waiting for us (other than the hint Max received to prepare himself for the highest bridge bungy jump in the world.  We have been told that the activities that either team could do may include things like learning to shoot a rifle, an elephant walk, interaction with Cheetahs, Tree Top Canopy Tour, Bungy Jump, a game drive on a quad bike, canoes and a couple of other things.  This is in addition to seeing some of the most beautiful landscape that not just the Eastern Cape, but South Africa has to offer.

The two teams selected consist of the following:
