Nedbank Tour de Tuli - 2017

The Nedbank Tour de Tuli is the main fundraising event hosted by Tour de Wilderness for Children in the Wilderness.

Children in the Wilderness, an environmental education and life skills programme for rural children living in and around conservation areas, has been operating since 2001. The opportunities presented by the programme are always increasing. There is, therefore, a need to be proactive with regards to fundraising in order to realise the programme’s potential.

One of Children in the Wilderness’ prime fundraising activities has been the mountain bike tours, which have proven both popular and life-changing for the participants, communities and the organizers!

In order to streamline this capability and to enable us to continue to operate on the leading edge of great mountain bike events, all fundraising events are operated under Tour de Wilderness – an umbrella brand which manages and coordinates all fundraising sports events for Children in the Wilderness.

All monies raised will directly benefit Children in the Wilderness. In this way, Tour de Wilderness will assist in ensuring the sustainability of the Children in the Wilderness programme through adventure tourism with a purpose!

In addition to Children in the Wilderness, the Wilderness Wildlife Trust is an independent non-profit entity associated with the Wilderness Group, supports a wide variety of projects across Africa. The projects and researchers that it supports address the needs of existing wildlife populations, seek solutions to save endangered species and provide education and training for local people and their communities.

Africa…my first love. My previous overland guiding days in East and Southern Africa and a 7 months charity cycle tour (driver/mechanic) from Cape Town to London have been life changing events, fuelling my love for Africa.
