Wilderness Safari

This event is one unique and intimate sporting event offered in the Southern Africa hemisphere. Organised by Wilderness Safaris; Tour de Tuli is a 300-kilometer (186-mile), four-day mountain bike ride through the Tuli Block of southern Africa, connecting Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. Unlike other multistage tours through Africa—or elsewhere around the world—this one is supported by three separate governments, with makeshift border crossings along riverbanks (you’ll need to keep your Ziploc-ed passport tucked inside your jersey, alongside your energy chews). Capped at 350 riders, plus 150 support staff, the tour fills up fast once it opens for registration each year in late November. This is another event that is a must do for travellers that are involved in philanthropic events as this challenge is about giving back to communities the company operates in Southern Africa.
