Couple Realises Their Dream Ventures, and The World Enters
“Permit can be obtained from the Forestry Department office by following their procedure such as quotas, guide, ratios and few more things to be full filled before the approval. The best is to contact the Forestry Department at least 14 days before date for inquiries and applications regarding permit.” Mrs. Cik Marina Hamzah, General Manager, ORL Ventures (ORL).
Safety is Part of Family
Speaking of outdoor adventures especially with mountain trips, the first thing that comes to mind is; how safe would this be? With the background and love for adventure, Ohana prioritises safety first among other important matters complete with its own Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) based on experience.
Ohana means Family, for ‘Families’ who Love Adventure
“A wide range of attractive packages are offered to enable Ohana to stand as the most preferred operator in adventure tourism. Towards this aim as well, we have developed our own SOP from long experience and it ensures that the safety of all our participants are our priority. In addition, the preparation of food by our own staff specially to be served to hikers who follow our packages becomes another attraction that makes us different from our competitors. We also operate optimally by running numerous tours per month so that there would be many more participants who would know Ohana or come back to us for other adventures.” Mr. Nik Mohd Zawanie Nik Mat, Founder of Ohana Adventure Sports.
A Comprehensive Safety System for Safety Assurance
They have an established Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and Risk Analysis Management System (RAMS) in place, where all these systems are implemented in all of their programmes and activities. All programme activities, Maverick has set a better than average trainer-to-participant ratio where every 10 persons in a group would be equipped with one trained guide or trainer regardless of how big a group is.
A Maverick to the Fore in Training and Adventure, whether Indoor or Outdoor
“The Janda Baik packages opened up a new horizon to Maverick as they offered more diverse activities resulting from our collaboration with local operators. Other than waterfall abseiling and jungle trekking that are run directly by Maverick, the integration of local tourism products help the domestic economy to expand as well. The safety aspects of each of the products are never neglected, so that also ensures that each product is individually sustainable in the long term. Big thanks to all our strategic partners who each have good awareness on participants’ safety and comfort, which really make it easy for all of us to move with the same rhythm.” Mr. Ahmad Shukry Awang Founder of Maverick Trainers and Consultants.
