Spectate first travelled to South Africa for cricket back in 1996 and have been returning to this beautiful country ever since. 'A World in One Country' is how you'll hear South Africa described; a fitting tribute for a place brimming with exceptional wonders.

Cricket tours with Spectate are one of our standout attractions and we are confident this will continue with our Cape Town Cricketer Tour.

Mr Richard Nurse, our longstanding Sports Tours Director (and native South African!) whom many of you will already know, will be assisting you on the tour and you will be accompanied by our celebrity Tour Hosts, Jonathan Trott and John Lever MBE.

For a sporting holiday that is more than just watching ‘the gentleman’s game’, our Cricketer Tours could be just the ticket. Offering plenty of inspirational activities away from the grounds, you’ll benefit from a fantastic holiday as well as being a spectator at enthralling Test matches.
