Cricket tours to South Africa
Our cricket tours to South Africa offer a superb opportunity to play competitively against local, national and international teams, as well as visit the sensational sites the country has to offer.
England’s recent successful Test series victory here has highlighted how beautiful the grounds are on a cricket tour to South Africa. Play matches in the format of choice against the backdrop of Table Mountain or the vineyards and scenery of Stellenbosch on one of our cricket tours to South Africa. Like its rugby counterpart, you’ll be tested across every Provence with a relentless display of batting and bowling on a set of very dry and bouncing wickets. Travel during November to April to prepare your team for the UK summer competitions.
Is there a better land for R&R activities? From an overnight safari to diving with sharks, the adrenalin continues to pump as you explore the provinces, each competing with each other for innovation and sheer value for money. Everyone loves it here and you’ll seldom want to return home from a one of our cricket tours to South Africa.

“There is no better place to tour in the world than Cape Town. I have been lucky enough to tour there as both an amateur and professional and it is the ultimate cricketing destination. The competitive cricket played in unbelievable settings, combined with a truly memorable cultural journey cannot be rivalled anywhere in the world.”
A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, there’s nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. Table Mountain National Park defines the city. The flat-topped mountain is the headline act, but there are many other equally gorgeous natural landscapes within the park’s extensive boundaries such as Lion’s Head. Cultivated areas, such as Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Green Point Urban Park, also make exploring the city a pleasure.
Follow the lead of locals by taking full advantage of the abundant outdoor space by visiting the incredible beaches of Camps Bay or Clifton where you can learn to surf or simply spend some time relaxing. Cape Town has almost everything you could want and our tours offer a multitude of exciting and diverse excursions and activities.
Can anyone show us a better cricket field than this?
