Calypso Cricket

For those who have had the good fortune to enjoy the festival that is cricket in the Caribbean, no other sporting sojourn will come close

Calypso Cricket is not just a sport; it is a passion and a celebration. It is also the definitive season for a party in the islands. The cricket is the focus but the music and the movement is the reason. The tour plan takes in 2 tests in Barbados and Trinidad. There will be a 15 day tour schedule and an add on tour of 7 days for those keen to see cricket in Roseau, Dominica and spend more time in the Caribbean. We will visit some of the true gems of the West Indian cricketing world. Global Drift will offer exciting choices for the days between the test matches. Options for golf, boat cruises and beach escapes can be taken up on the tour as desired. These tour options will be incorporated with your pre trip information pack.

Inclusions and Exclusions
- ***THIS IS A SAMPLE ITINERARY ONLY*** -
Day 1 - arrive Barbados
Arrival day (no activities planned). We settle in for our stay in this beautiful location
Days 2-6 - Barbados - Kensington
Sir Garfield Sobers territory, the Kingston Ground makes for a parochial yet fun and interactive test venue. Worrell, Weekes and Walcott are the ghosts of glories past yet each series sees the emergence of a new champion. This is truly a fantastic cricket ground. Each day we transfer to the Kensington Ground for the First Test between Australia and the West Indies. The renovated venue is a sight to behold and the atmosphere is a huge part of the game. We are nearby the centre of Bridgetown so you can incorporate some exploration during these days at the cricket and we will stay behind after the match to enjoy the vibrant celebrations that spring up all over town. You may choose to take a day or two off and there will be plenty of options and suggestions such as hiring a car and circling Barbados on a day trip or relaxing at the beautiful west coast beaches. The choices are endless
Day 7 - Barbados
We have one free day scheduled for optional activities at the end of our stay. Soak up the sun and sand to cap off your visit to one of the jewels of the Caribbean
Day 8 - Barbados to Trinidad
A short flight today takes us to the land of Calypso and an island of contrasts. Pulsating life, exotic cultures and stunning nature. Discover mountain ranges with dense, impenetrable virgin forest and magnificent waterfalls. The true home of the Calypso culture with its blend of Caribbean, Indian and Spanish influences. This is Brian Lara country and cricket and life here exudes his flair

A free day is scheduled to settle in and explore the culture and distinctive nature. There will be many options to choose from

You will find it hard not to be drawn into the action on the field
