CYCLISTS' GUIDE
Nedbank Tour de Tuli

TOUR DATE  -  02 - 07 AUGUST 2018

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. It is the main fundraiser for Children in the Wilderness and all funds raised by the Tour are channelled directly to Children in the Wilderness. The event is open to corporate group bookings as well as individuals, family and friends wanting to enjoy time together on their bikes.

The Tour is renowned for its extremely high standards of service and the unique experience of riding through some of Africa’s most pristine, wildlife and geologically rich areas. The riding route will be predominantly single track, riding along ancient elephant and game trails, on unmarked and un-manicured routes. The Tour follows very strict environmental practices and every camp site is left as it was originally found.

Over the last 13 years, the Tour has hosted approximately 3 223 participants and raised R18 million. This has allowed us to host over 5 600 children on our camp programme since 2001 and over 11 000 children on our Eco-Club programme since 2012.

Participants will experience amazing bush surroundings and have fun with great people for four days and five nights with the event taking place 02-07 AUGUST 2018
