Join us for a 4 day exploration of the Land of Giants – Tuli Wilderness. This short expedition, which takes place over an extended weekend, is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Tuli Adventure tour departs from Johannesburg. The route takes us up through the meandering roads of the scenic Waterberg, merging onto the lightly technical gravel roads, onto the path to the Botswana border post, and lastly up to Molema Bush Camp. This allows for both seasoned adventure tourer and lightly travelled adventurer to put to full use the capabilities of their motorcycles. Molema Bush camp is our base for the trip and finds itself located near the Plat Jan border crossing. The route is carefully charted to provide maximum enjoyment for all types of adventure motorcyclist; providing opportunities to experience various terrains that both intrigue and test riders from novice to intermediate levels.

Groups are limited to 10 motorcycles so as to limit the impact we have on the indigenous surroundings of the Tuli ecosystem. This allows for an intimate tour of the renowned Tuli wilderness, and offers the unique opportunity to view a vast array of wildlife from the back of your motorcycle. The tour offers various packages to choose from, with each inclusive of all meals at the camp, a daily game drive, a support vehicle and trailer to carry your luggage.

What a fantastic trip! Great bunch of people, great accommodation. I fell off many times in the soft sand, the guys were always there to help me pick up the bike. They were good instructors too – sand riding is not all that easy!

Awesome trip to Tuli Botswana – well organised and good food! Had lots of fun and learned a lot of new skills on the GS1200 especially driving in soft sand!
Will recommend this tour to anyone looking for an Adventure!

Absolutely worth it. I have joined two tours and will definitely not miss the next one. Just imagine riding your bike in a true wilderness area and staying in great accommodation and sharing all this with great people. If you want adventure this is certainly a trip not to be missed. Pure magic.

Even as a lady pilion rider this was an awesome experience. Waking up to the bush sounds every morning was very special. Thanks to Tuli-adventures for a truly exciting experience. Hopefully one day I can do this on my own bike.
