We wanted to give a big shout out to one of our lovely photographers, Juliet Lemon, who is currently embarking on an epic adventure! Juliet is currently completing the Tour de Wilderness cycle ride across Africa to raise money for the Children in the Wilderness charity.

THE RIDE

Juliet is one of 350 mountain bikers traversing 300km of remote and challenging terrain in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa over 4 days. The group will be pedalling through the remote and protected areas of the Tuli Block (where these three countries meet) and will pass through remote terrain including elephant and other wildlife trails, sand, stone ridges, streams and flowing rivers, dry river beds, riverine scrub, indigenous forest and open plains. Hopefully Juliet will also have a chance to encounter the stunning wildlife, magnificent scenery and local communities living on the boundaries of these protected areas! You can read more about how Juliet trained for the ride and has been fundraising for the wonderful Children in the Wilderness charity over on her blog.

 

THE CHARITY

All the funds raised by this ride go directly to Children in the Wilderness (CITW), a non-profit organisation that runs sustainable educational programmes for children in southern Africa. The environmental and life skills programmes teach the children the importance of conservation and instil a passion for the environment so that they may become custodians of these incredible areas in the future. The children spend time in the Wilderness Safaris ecotourism camps and the programmes cover topics such as wildlife, conservation, health, HIV/AIDS awareness, nutrition, life skills, geography, geology, arts, crafts and theatre.


 

This is such as great charity, so please take a look at all their incredible work and make a donation to Juliet’s fund if you can!
