First Class

South African Cricket Safari

South Africa emerged from the world's sporting wilderness to reassert itself as a cricketing powerhouse. Never far from the top of the rankings the Proteas always provide an intimidating challenge for visiting cricket nations. The cricket is tough and hard fought but the atmosphere and location are as welcoming as anywhere in the world

Our itinerary provides excellent accommodation and smooth connections. We are serious about security and have experienced people on the ground to ensure we enjoy our stay and keep safe.  The 14 day tour will enjoy two cricket Tests and includes a visit to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve for 'Big Game' drives. We have an opportunity to visit Table Mountain and other sites in beautiful Cape Town. We have included South Africa’s most visually stunning and atmospheric Test venues of Newlands and the Wanderers.  These final 2 Tests of the tour will most certainly determine the outcome of the series.  Global Drift offers a tour schedule with inclusions such as all cricket tickets, private transport, game park drives and sightseeing in each location. There will be options for golf and other location specific activities OUR PRIORITY IS SECURITY, SAFETY AND COMFORT

Day 8 - Pilanesberg Game Reserve
Our safari experience is in full swing today with morning and evening game drives. This is the best time to search for the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo) as well as other legendary African beasts such as cheetah, zebra and giraffe. There is time for relaxation in our beautiful surrounds in the Park
Day 9 - Pilanesberg Game Reserve to Johannesburg
This morning we enjoy our final game drive and after a hearty breakfast we head back to on a short flight to Johannesburg. Our base here is the Sandton area a wonderful central precinct with a multitude of restaurants, cafes and outdoor eateries. It is the beating heart of Johannesburg
Days 10-14 - Johannesburg - ***FOURTH TEST***
Transfers to the Wanderers Stadium. This cauldron generates the best cricketing atmosphere in South Africa. It is known as the "Bull Ring" for reasons that will be very apparent. Most areas are covered which tends to keep the noise in and there is often 30,000 plus spectators enjoying the cricket during the high veld summers. The atmosphere makes for a true test of character for any international cricketer. On our final day 14 of the tour we recommend an evening departure flight in case the cricket goes down to the wire late on Day 5. You are free to depart any time on this day and most international connections depart in the evening
- Any tickets to other tour fixtures, extra day’s accommodation and packages can be arranged by Global Drift as required -
