Biking with a Purpose at the 2014 Nedbank Tour de Tuli

Botswana Tourism Organization Consumer eNewsletter

The 2014 Nedbank Tour de Tuli has once again lived up to its reputation as one of southern Africa’s premier mountain biking events. Organized by Children in the Wilderness (CITW), the 10th edition of this event saw 340 participants cycle across over 250 km of challenging and remote terrain in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa this past August. Are you one of them?

Starting at the Pont Drift border between South African and Botswana, cyclists rode for two days, exploring the Northern Tuli Game Reserve on ancient elephant trails. From here, they crossed the Shashe River and entered Zimbabwe’s Tuli Circle with a further two days spent cycling through communal areas and expansive bushveld. The final day saw riders cross the Limpopo River into South Africa’s Mapungubwe National Park and over the finish line.

“While the magnificent landscape continues to amaze cyclists year after year, one of the high points was the opportunity for cyclists to meet with some of the communities that CITW works with and witness first-hand how funds raised from the tour make a difference in their lives,” said Dr. Sue Snyman, CITW Program Director. All funds raised by the tour are channeled directly into CITW, a non-profit organization that runs sustainable education programs to bridge the divide between communities and the wildlife areas they live next to.

The Nedbank Tour de Tuli is also a cross-border tourism success story, with the governments of Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa working closely together to ensure a seamless experience for participants, and in doing so, raising awareness of the importance of Transfrontier Conservation Areas.

If you are a mountain biking enthusiast, and prefer to vacation with a purpose, why not organize a team to participate in next year’s event? It’s a great way to combine active adventure and an exhilarating safari in one trip!  For more information, please visit www.childreninthewilderness.com.
