I know I say this every time, but this year was really my best year ever and I really consider Tour de Tuli as a life changing experience.
My goodness what a fabulous time I had!! I had lost my nerve with MTB'ing and Tour De Tuli was just the most perfect way to rebuild my confidence on the bike again.

My biggest personal take from the Tour de Tuli, is the life-long friendships that have developed over the years
It is the main fundraiser for Children in the Wilderness (CITW), where all funds raised are channelled directly into the CITW programme. Over the last 14 years, the Tour has hosted approximately 3 500 participants and raised R19 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.
This authentic mountain bike 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 event focuses on following strict environmental practices, working with the community and setting unforgettable routes, allowing participants to experience amazing bush surroundings with a group of likeminded individuals.
Children in the Wilderness is a non-profit organisation, aiming to facilitate sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Africa. This is achieved in a variety of ways, from running CITW camps, to hosting Eco-Clubs at schools and training Eco-Mentors within the rural communities that live on the edges of the wild areas of Africa.
All funds raised on the Nedbank Tour de Tuli go to Children in the Wilderness, helping to ensure the sustainability of the programme across the seven regions within which they operate.
