Welcome to sensational South Africa, a trip that never comes too often. Cricket, beaches, elephants, parties, BBQ's, lions, golf, grapes, sights, sounds and extreme affordability makes South Africa a fantastic place, best enjoyed with exceptional people.
We have enjoyed all ‘Australian Test Cricket Tours’ here since 1997, spending much time in every city the great game is played. Our relaxed approach & knowledge of South Africa is sure to make your time with us even more memorable.
After playing 4 Tests in 2018, we only play 3 Tests in 2021 which will have a gross effect on our Cricket Tours; we lose 2 weeks of awesome cricket travel. It also means we won't return to one if not two of the grounds we played in 2018! Bring back 5 Tests!
The countryis so well geared to visitors you’d be excused for thinking South Africa created ‘tourism’. Whether on escorted tours or travelling alone, South Africans know what they’re doing and never shy from helping you get to where you want to go, and introducing you to places you never knew existed.
When asked where is the cheapest place to visit many expect it to be India, Pakistan, or the like and though dollar for dollar India is cheaper, consuming the finest foods and wines in some of the finest restaurants and bars elevates South Africa to the top for just a few dollars more. If you budget correctly, you can save money travelling to South Africa.
AUD$1 = ZAR11 near the highest exchange-rate ever. In 2006 we got less than 4 rands. Stay on top of the rate with XE.com
I can't talk-up South Africa enough. Breathtaking! Beaches and mountains. Shark-diving and hiking. Surfing and safaris. Golf and grapes. Add cricket at venues that allow you on the field at lunch, and you must go far to find a better destination and why we leave you to decide where and when you want to go before or after each Test.
We’re here to bring you safely together at 1, 2, or 3 Tests, twin share or single, extra nights before or after each test, and until well after play!
In South Africa 2021 we offer 7-nights hotels that include 2-nights before and 5-nights of each Test. Pending the schedule, we may include an 8th night (after the test) and a day-trip. With so much to do in Africa, history suggests many will disappear the day after the Test and resurface in time for the next one!
With 4 & 5 days between Tests in 2018, some went to Madagascar, others Zimbabwe or Namibia, some to Sun City, and plenty to Kruger National Park. Some hired a car and road-tripped from Durban to PE to Cape Town, and some stayed 8 or 9 nights in each city to sit on a beach, before flying to the next. If you're enjoying our hotel tour, you will be booked to arrive 'two nights before' the Test.
Ultimately, our Cricket Tours (including a 'road trip') will be finalised once we know where and when we are playing. The 2018 schedule was the best ever with all matches geographically lined up. It doesn't mean 2021 will be the same, we may end up going backwards and forwards, but getting about it easy.
If travelling alone and you book ‘twin share’, you will be partnered to share a room with another lone cricket aficionado, and someone you may ultimately road trip with after play! If you prefer more privacy, book ‘single’ and you will have your own room. If you are travelling as a 'couple' just book 'double share' and we will allocate you a 'double room'.
If you have booked your own hotel, you can still enjoy the game with us. Our Match Ticket & Dinner Option includes match tickets, 2 dinners with drinks, shirt, hat, and embankment chair where required.
We want to have a wonderful time in an amazing country, watching awesome cricket with you so please consider our Australia in South Africa Cricket Tour. If you have any questions before booking, let's have a chat!
