Ride Karamoja

When we first brought bikes to Karamoja with  Bicycles for Humanity, we knew then, that the  region had the potential to be a world call mountain biking  destination.  Literally thousands of miles of great single track trail , coupled with many routes off Mt Moroto and on the shoulders of the mountain, can provide everyone with  an incredible mountain biking holiday.

Our    goal  through all we do is to empower the local people and to assist them in creating positive change in their communities.   The Tepeth People, a small indigenous  people  of the region live on the shoulders of MT Moroto, where the   great mountain biking is.  We have held meeting with them to sensitize them to mountain bikes and they are in   favor of having  them in their territory. 

We are teaching trail building and funds from  Karamoja cycling jerseys and  funds  from the Tour of Karamoja and fee's charged for riding the incredible trail network will go towards the local people to help them maintain and grow the network while creating a new environmentally friendly economy for themselves and their people.

Ride, Safari and Experience Unbelievable Culture

Many places have   great riding or   great parks, but only Karamoja has both plus a culture  that is so unique that together, it makes for incredible adventures and out of this world trips. Add to this one of the  most famous people in cycling, Paul Sherwen, and an experienced team   with a lot of tourism and cycling experience and you have all of the  pieces needed to be able to provide  world class cycling and adventure  trips that  you can  create and sell to your  clients who are looking for the  very best that Africa has to offer.

In addition to  our Tour of Karamoja, we will be adding 2 new adventures for cyclists to come and enjoy our incredible region.  They are the  Ride the Nomadic Warrior  Trails and  The Heart of the Lion Gravel Bike Adventure, links  in our directory  will give you more details of these  adventures or   send us an email if you  have an idea of a trip that your clients will love.   I can be reached at pat@karamoja.org  or  to reach Theo, info@kara-tunga.com
