Nedbank Tour de Tuli - 2017

2017 Registrations are open!
27 July – 1 August 2017

The Nedbank Tour de Tuli has been running for the past 12 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 (CITW), and all funds raised by the tour are channelled directly into CITW. Over the last 12 years, the tour has hosted approximately 3 223 cyclists 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.

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 in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The Tour follows very strict environmental practices and every camp site is left as it was originally found.

Cyclists will experience amazing bush surroundings and have fun with great people for four days and five nights with the event taking place around July/August each year.

  • It is me that has to thank you and all the Tour de Tuli / Children in the Wilderness / Wilderness Safari team that made it possible for me to have an unforgettable week in Africa.

    Again it is me that has to thank you and all the other people involved, in giving me the opportunity to help such a noble program which hopefully will help, through education, that my children and their children’s children will have the opportunity to see beautiful Africa in a similar way that I saw it with you.

  • The Nedbank Tour De Tuli is a brilliant event and a must do for anyone who rides a bicycle and has a love for the bush. It’s an experience that I’m very happy to have been able to tick off my Bucket list. Incredible riding in an amazing part of the world.

  • I only took positives away from the event! Eveyone involved whent out of their way to make you feel welcome and most of all very comfortable at all times. The food was outstanding, not only in the race villages, but out on the ride. It was a joy to be recived for coffee / tea / fruit cake shortbread etc. in the mornings, as well as the much needed brunch a few hours on. Then after filling up at these stations, to be greated with a full lunch, followed by a great dinner at the race village, not to mention the well stocked bar. Thus I arrive home heavier than my departure

  • I feel compelled to write this just to inspire you all on what has to be the greatest and best organised event of any kind that I have ever taken part in. You have put together a piece of magic that works so well on so many different levels. The recipe is perfect!

  • I want to say a huge thank you for a truly amazing event. I had heard that it was great , but this exceeded all expectations. The amount of work that must happen behind the scenes to make this as seamless as it was must never be underestimated.

    To you and your “always smiling” crew – a massive thank you from me.

  • It is such a pleasure to work with your team of guys – to arrive at camp and be greeted by these cool, calm and collected guys who have a plan for everything, Thank you!

  • A longtime passion growing up and where this “bug” began for me, was cycling with my father on weekends along the beautiful beach roads in South Florida where we currently reside. Born to parents of South African heritage, enjoying the thrill of the Nedbank Tour de Tuli combining my love for biking and my admiration for my father is truly what makes the experience unforgettable

    Brennan Rimer
  • My third installment and my dad’s twelfth was a fantastic ride. I am stronger and fitter than he is on the bike, but he is impressive seeing that I am 21 and he is 61. I am sure that we will be able to do this again next year and the year after that and maybe by that time he will be back to beating me. What an honor it is to share an event like this with my father who I love and respect so dearly.
