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, as well as the breathtakingly beautiful Garden Route, on a school rugby tour your team will never forget!

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 …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College , September 2023
