Twelve reasons to ride the Tour de Tuli
bottles of our award winning and frankly delicious wine available to Tour de Tuli participants for a fabulous price. R100 from each box sold will be donated to Children in the Wilderness as well as our usual donation to the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Wines include 4 of the den wines; 4 of our black pack labels and two each of our new range of Peloton wines, because we love cycling in wild places.
Cycling in untamed bush. Seriously – real untamed bush… the kind of bush that attacks you with thorns if you’re not careful.
Interaction with local communities that are supported by Children in the Wilderness. Your sponsorship money in action.
The chance to cross three international borders on bicycles in a very informal way.
Crossing the Limpopo River (crocodiles and hippos may or may not be included)
The number of times an elephant icon is posted on the route maps to indicate chances you might ride around a bend and straight into one!
A chance to visit Mapungubwe National Park. The area was already inhabited by a growing Iron Age community from 900 AD and became rich through trade with faraway places like Egypt, India and China. This is the place where archeologists excavated the famous golden rhino and other evidence of a wealthy African kingdom.
5-6 hours of cycling a day – punishing but satisfying.
Visit three countries in four days – no tour guides, crowds or fast food outlets.
Three fabulous overnight camps in between legs of cycling. A chance to kick back relax and have a drink at the bar.
The baobab trees. Feel dwarfed by these beauties.
One unforgettable, life-changing experience.
Oh yes, and did we mention our wine?
This year, the Painted Wolf Wines Top Dog, our mountain biking winemaker, Jeremy Borg is taking part in the Tour. Be sure to say Hi if you spot him and hand him your filled out order form which will be available in the goodie bags.
