Visit the the Nedbank Tour de Wilderness website for registrations and other exciting upcoming events.
Children in the Wilderness has been hosting unique fundraising mountain bike tours since 2005 and over the years these events have grown in stature to become one of South Africa’s finest mountain biking experiences. The Nedbank Tour de Tuli has been running for the past 13 years and is a renowned, premier mountain bike Tour through some of Africa’s most pristine wilderness areas in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. This event is not a race, but a tour allowing cyclists to enjoy every moment of Africa’s allure.
The cycling and overall experience for all involved is incredible. The event offers game viewing opportunities, cultural interaction, the romance of informal border crossings, crossing the Limpopo River, cyclists supporting local communities, the hidden gem ‐ Mapungubwe National Park, the sandstone ridges, the baobabs and the setting overlooking the confluence at the end of the event…mind‐blowing.
The huge media coverage generated by the cycle tour helps create much awareness for the areas through which we travel. Monies raised through the tour help with the sustainability of the Children in the Wilderness programme by hosting more children’s camps, Eco-Clubs and hosting quality staff training.
Another project that was initiated through the tour was that of assisting the Maramani Village School No 14, which is in desperate need of school buildings and equipment. By exposing the cyclists to this school, many of them expressed an interest to contribute with the development of this school.
The event not only raises funds for a worthy and important cause, but cyclists walk away with a life changing experience, by putting on some ‘mileage’ for every cent donated. Join us for experience of a lifetime!
