Tour d’Afrique in Livingstone Zambia.
Safari-Par Excellence was thrilled to host the Tour D’Afrique team early this April. On their monumental transcontinental bicycle trip, from Cairo to Cape Town.
This is the sixteenth trip the company has conducted along their flagship African route. Since their first expedition in 2003.
Covering 12,000 km’s North to South of the African continent, the trip usually takes 4 months. With team members opting to do the full route or carefully selected segments.
On their inaugural expedition in 2003, Tour d’Afrique also established the “Tour d’Afrique Foundation”. The TDA foundation is the charity arm of the organization. Among monetary fundraising and cash support for causes on their routes, the “TDA Foundation” also donates one bicycle per full route rider to identified causes.
This year at a function presided over by Livingstone Mayor, his worship Eugene Mapuwo, at the “Victoria Falls Waterfront”. The foundation handed over twenty bicycles, to schools in Livingstone.
“African Impact” our local NGO had identified seven schools that will benefit exponentially from the donation.
The expedition team was in Livingstone for a few days of well-earned rest and recuperation. Bikes to be fixed and participants were able to partake in the regions many activities.
A huge thank you from the Livingstone community to all the Tour d’Afrique participants and the foundation for your generous donations. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019.
