Mr Richard Nurse, our longstanding Sports Tours Director (and native South African!) whom many of you will already know, will be accompanying you on this South Africa cricket tour as well as our celebrity Tour Hosts, Jonathan Trott and Derek Randall.

Our Platinum tours offer a superb level of sporting holiday, unique to us, providing the discerning cricket fan unrivalled service, style and sophistication.

In Cape Town, we once again feature our exclusive hospitality at 153 Campground, located a stone's throw away from Newlands Stadium. Here you will be treated to the finest off-site hospitality that includes a full open bar, bespoke buffet menu, air conditioning and for those who want to cool off and relax, a swimming pool! Your tickets will be located in the Members Pavillion, fully shaded and behind the bowler's arm... the best seats in the house!

Cape Grace

Cape Grace

Nestled between Cape Town’s bustling V&A Waterfront and the international yacht marina you’ll discover Cape Grace on its own private quay. The African-inspired spa here is the perfect place to unwind, while the heated swimming pool offers a chilled-out place to relax after a morning spent shopping in the city. Sampling one of the many whiskies and Cape wines from Bascule Bar is a ‘must’ during your stay.
