How can I make payments on Tour?

Payments for services on Tour can be paid for with Bar Tokens. These can be purchased online prior to the event or from Support Desk on event.

What currencies are accepted on Tour?

Cash will be accepted in ZAR, BWP and USD. Exchange rates will be determined and set the week the event starts.

Can family come along on Tour?

Due to the extensive logistics and costs of operating in these remote areas, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate non-riding family and/or friends. Your family can take advantage of some of the travel options available to visit nearby lodges and camps whilst you are on Tour.

For the same reasons as above, we are unable to accommodate non-riding family members for the first and last night’s functions, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Is there cell phone signal on Tour?

Unless you have a sim card for the relevant country or roaming, you may struggle to get signal. There are also many areas where there is no signal at all. The event does have communication via Two-way radio and SAT phones for emergencies.

Will there be WiFi on Tour?

WiFi will be sponsored by Liquid Telecom on Tour. The WiFi will be available for participants on the first and last night only. The nights in between, the WiFi will only be available for the credit card facilities and media team.

Who can my family contact in case of emergency?

For any emergencies whilst the event is taking place, please contact Mari on +27 (0)11 257 5057 or +27 (0)82 627 5001.

Do you have bikes for rent?

We do have a contact for bike rentals. Please email info@childreninthewilderness.com for details.

Are you allowed to ride an e-bike on Tour?

You are allowed to bring an e-bike on Tour. Please be mindful of the training that is needed for the event even if you are riding an e-bike. The terrain can be strenuous and you should have done sufficient training regardless of what bike you are riding.

Please also ensure that you bring along a spare battery for your bike for back up on the longer and harder days.

I will be your responsibility to have both batteries charged every day and given to the Support Desk team.

Please also note there are portage sections where you will need to carry your bike. E-bikes are heavy and this needs to be considered.

Do I need a visa for the event?

Depending on the nationality of your passport, you might need a visa for participating in the event. Please see our Visa Lists indicating if you need a visa and if you need to apply for this before the event.

Visas fees and the applications are for your own responsibility and account.
