Want your next school cricket tour to both build your players’ confidence and broaden their horizons? Choose the beautiful country of South Africa! Cricket is the country’s second most popular sport and the national team, the Proteas, are one of the best in Test cricket.

Test your skills against local opposition as passionate about cricket as you are. Then, explore the history and culture of South Africa with your team, visiting important sites like Robben Island and Table Mountain.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit a local township with your team, where they'll meet locals and gain a deeper understanding of life in South Africa. This is certainly a school cricket tour that offers great overall educational value!
