South Africa 2018 - 2nd, 3rd and 4th Test Tour

Australia and South Africa enjoy a great rivalry in cricket and this tour promises to be one of the best yet. Following on from the Aussies great performance in India, they will be full of confidence moving onto this important series.

Outside the cricket, we will visit some of the popular tourist destinations in the country making it a tour not to miss.


This tour will pick up the Test Series at the start of the 2nd Test Match at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth. We will then take in the 3rd Test Match at the wonderful Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, before finishing at the cauldron of the Wanderers in Johannesburg


The 8 nights in between the 2nd and 3rd Test Matches will see the group head off to Victoria Falls, Sun City and Madikwe Game Reserve before we head down to Cape Town for a tour of the Cape Peninsula, Robben Island and visit to the top of Table Mountain.
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
