South Africa is a fantastic choice for your next school football tour. The South Africans are huge fans of all sport and football is no exception – you’ll see locals playing football everywhere you travel here!

On your school football tour to South Africa, you’ll play local opposition of a similar standard. As well as building your team’s confidence and experience, this'll also help your players discover the vibrant South African culture.

You’ll stay in accommodation with fantastic on-site sporting facilities and, when not on the pitch, you’ll also have plenty of time to explore the country, taking in famous sights such as Robben Island and Table Mountain. A highlight of the trip will be a visit to a local township, where your players will enjoy the unforgettable experience of engaging with the local community.

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'! As always, the experience of working with Halsbury on this tour was very good - everyone was very pleasant to talk to and helpful. They were always able to solve problems for us both in the build-up and during the tour. We consistently recommend Halsbury to other tour organisers, as they care about the tours they prepare and make sure they are tailored to our needs. — Brighton College , August 2023
