South Africa is one of the world’s top destinations for tourists with a variety of national parks, stunning coast lines & beaches, diverse cultures, history & languages. You could visit South Africa countless times and still have more to see.
There are plenty of itinerary options for touring to South Africa to include the key cities, Cape Town, Durban & Johannesburg, as well as trips along the Garden Route or to national parks such as Hluhluwe and Pilanesburg.
South Africans are passionate about their sport and you will find plenty being played across the country. Rugby and cricket are popular sports for the boys whilst netball and hockey are equally as popular for the girls. You will be sure to find competitive levels of fixtures in these sports to accommodate a range of ages and abilities. The seasons are the opposite to the UK with winter sports being played in July & August and summer sports at Christmas and the February half term.
Each tour can be designed around your individual requests. We at Living with the Lions would be delighted to compose a sports tour to South Africa for you and will be sure to recommend some of the great excursions on offer in South Africa including, the historic Robben Island or breath-taking Table Mountain. Or perhaps you would relish some surfing lessons, a township tour or a game drive instead? Whatever you want to do during your time in South Africa, we are able to help you to get the most out of your visit.

JOHN TIDBALL – KING EDWARD’S SCHOOL, BATH – RUGBY & NETBALL TOUR TO SOUTH AFRICA 2014
The tour structure was excellent and with a few tweaks would have been outstanding. However the fixtures, hosting, weather all added to this and contributed to this being one of the most successful large co-ed tours I have been involved with during my time at KES.’
