Meet The Team


Jabulani Mthalane

Phumlani Radebe

The Nguni Trails team consists of Jabulani Mthalane as team leader and Phumlani Radebe. Jabulani grew up in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and he has a natural affinity to working in a landscaping environment. Although Jabulani is new to the trail building environment he has successfully managed his own garden and home maintenance business, Jabulani and Associates for seven years.


Prior to joining the Nguni Trails team Phumlani had been working for the Karkloof MTB Club doing trail building and maintenance for several years. Phumlani loves to ride in local races when he gets the opportunity, and has built a jump line in the trees above his home in Karkloof. Jabulani and Phumlani have combined to form an excellent team that loves trail building but also riding, which is critical to trail building.


Nguni Trails is also fortunate to have the support and of Devlin Fogg as a mentor. Dev, as his friends call him, is a passionate cyclist and has developed a number of trails and organised many MTB events around the country. He’s also a local based in the Karkloof District of KwaZulu-Natal and he’s lucky to call the Karkloof and Howick trails his backyard. Dev works closely with Jabulani and Phumlani as he imparts his knowledge of trail design and building and his passion for great riding.


Through the ATI, Nguni Trails has been well equipped to provide excellent trail building services. The business has a bakkie, chainsaws, brush cutters and other tools required for the job.
