Nedbank Tour de Tuli 2013 - highlights

Last week 300 cyclists travelled to the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers, where the borders of Botswana, Zimbabwe and SA meet. They slept in tiny tents in the Northern Tuli GR, along the Limpopo R in Zimbabwe and in Greater Mapungubwe TCA. They spun their wheels dodging lions, elephants, raking thorns, deep sand and thick dust for 4 days while a troop of volunteers seamlessly conjured hot showers, cold beers and delicious meals in some of the wildest places in southern Africa.

What makes the Nedbank Tour de Tuli such a unique experience is not just the people, the places you ride and the superb food and accommodation. It is that all the money raised by those riding goes to Children in the Wilderness, which teaches children living in rural communities next to wildlife reserves the importance of nature conservation for their future.
