South Africa 2018 - 1st, 2nd and 3rd Test Tour

Australia return to South Africa for the first time since 2014 and you don't want to miss the chance to experience one of the greatest cricketing touring destinations in the world.

Both nations have a great rivalry when it comes to cricket, so the action is always first class and then we visit some of the best cities and destinations including Cape Town, Vic Falls, Sun City, Madikwe Game Reserve and the Garden Route.


We'll be there to watch every ball of the first three Test Matches in this four Test Match Series. Starting with the 1st Test at Kingsmead in Durban, then moving onto St George's Park Port Elizabeth and finishing with one of the most picturesque grounds in world cricket - Newlands in Cape Town.


This is the tour that covers all of the essential sightseeing you need to tick off your must-see list. Three Game Drives "hunting" the Big 5 in the private Madikwe Game Reserve, experiencing the power of Victoria Falls, a stay at the entertainment mecca of Sun City, tours of the Cape Peninsula and world famous Stellenbosch wine region, a visit to Table Mountain & Robben Island and also a day in Knysna along the spectacular Garden Route.
Our accommodation lodges in Madikwe Game Reserve range from sleeping 12 to 30 guests. We are using a variety of lodges including Motswiri Safari Lodge, Madikwe River Lodge, Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge, Impodimo Game Lodge and Tuningi Safari Lodge

Tour Host

To top the tour off you will have the services of Australian cricketing legend Merv Hughes as Tour Host. Merv will join this tour in Port Elizabeth until the end of the Tour in Cape Town. Merv returns to South Africa with AST for the 6th time as a Tour Host and it just so happened to be the country where he played his last Test Match back in 1993/94. Merv will provide a great insight into the action taking place on the field and give his thoughts on where the Series is heading with his briefings and function chats.
