School Rugby Tour to South Africa

Best time to travel: April to late May

Take your school rugby team on a tour of South Africa, a country that lives and breathes rugby! South Africa is home to the Springboks, who burst onto the international rugby scene thanks to a victorious home World Cup.

When a match is played over here, whole towns and villages come to a grinding halt. The rugby culture in South Africa is also very social – you’re sure to be invited to a traditional braai when taking on local teams!

By staying in Cape Town and Knysna you’ll explore the country’s fascinating history and iconic townships, as well as the breathtakingly beautiful Garden Route, on a school rugby tour your team will never forget!
