The most unique mountain bike adventure in the world, the Nedbank Tour de Tuli, provides participants with the life-changing opportunity of riding along ancient elephant migrations trails, unmanicured single track and unmarked routes in some of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area. Limited to just 350 participants and over four days, the route traverses terrain in three countries, Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, navigating through informal borders on the bank of the Shashe River, through prime wildlife territory and interacting with the local communities.
This authentic high-end mountain bike event is paired with a ratio of one staff member for every two participants. Special touches included individual tents, hot showers, massages and five superb meals each day. The camps are located in remote wilderness locations and follow strict sustainability practices, ensuring that each site is left as it was originally found.
The Nedbank Tour de Tuli is the main fundraiser for Children in the Wilderness (CITW), a non-profit organization supported by ecotourism company Wilderness Safaris. All funds raised from the event are channelled into the CITW Programme, which aims to facilitate sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Africa.
