Holiday ideas whilst on tour

For urbanites and culture-seekers, South Africa’s big cities offer a diverse exploration of the country’s cultural heritage. The ‘Mother City’ of Cape Town is a cosmopolitan destination of gourmet restaurants and trendy bars, backdropped by the imposing Table Mountain.

We’ll arrange for fascinating tours of Robben Island, a guided stroll along the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Then, of course, there’s Johannesburg’s upmarket dining, historic architecture and plentiful culture.

We can help you indulge in some real holiday time on the blue flag beaches of Clifton – the city’s answer to Saint Tropez. Here you can relax and unwind on white sandy beaches.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, we always like to include wildlife adventures on our South Africa tours. Travelling even just a little off the beaten track between Tests or ODIs can find you in some of the world’s most spectacular and distinctive National Parks.

Our access to the vast Inspiring Travel Company portfolio means we have insider knowledge and first-rate access to the very best properties and safari lodges out there

So let us tailor an incredible South African safari adventure as an extension to your holiday; no one takes you beyond the boundaries like Spectate.

 

Everything You Need to Know:

What's included in my South Africa cricket holiday?

Premium tickets for the matches you choose to attend, stays at first-class hotels, all flights and transfers, plus in-person assistance throughout your tour from your dedicated celebrity Tour Host and manager. Plus, of course, there's a selection of drinks receptions and our legendary State of Play function too.

Can I just buy South Africa v England match tickets from you?

At Spectate, we're all about the whole travel experience. So, we don't just sell tickets - we create the ultimate sporting holiday. In South Africa, this might include incredible luxury safari breaks, private wine tasting tours, or guided historical tours of Robben Island. We've got a lifetime of South Africa expertise in our team, so we're able to make the perfect suggestions and offer first-hand insight for your trip to the Rainbow Nation.

When will I receive my tickets?

We advise that you'll receive your South Africa tickets no later than two days before you're due to depart. Should you have any queries, or if you haven't received your tickets by the expected time, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. 

How do you guarantee Spectate guests have the best view?

South Africa is one of our favourite destinations, and we're lucky enough to have attended matches at all the major venues here on multiple occasions. As a result, we know from experience which areas offer the best views, where to locate our hospitality area, and where to find a little shade for respite from the South African sun!

What will my holiday include in addition to the cricket?

Each South Africa itinerary is packed with sightseeing trips, cultural excursions and plenty of leisure time at your luxury hotel. Our team will also arrange specific excursions should you have something in mind, or make suggestions based on our own experience and recommendations from our South African travel partners.

My partner doesn't want to watch all five days of the Test - what can you offer?

Our travel packages are completely flexible, and we can tailor-make any element. So, we'll stop at nothing to create the ideal experience for each and every Spectate guest.
