South Africa v England Test Match, Cape Town & Port Elizabeth - Platinum

We are delighted to return to South Africa for a cricket tour with a very special Platinum tour!

Join us for the second and third Tests of the 2019-20 South Africa v England tournament. Our Cape Town and Port Elizabeth Test Match Platinum Tour will be complimented by our popular State of Play evenings for each Test, a Franschhoek Winery Tour and celebratory Cocktail Evening at ITC House in Cape Town. Our carefully crafted itinerary includes premium cricket tickets, match day hospitality, luxury accommodation and transfers throughout.

With the summer sunshine and fantastic highlights we've arranged, this tour is set to 'wow' you with the very finest attractions South Africa has to offer; including game drives and vineyard tours.

Mr Richard Nurse, our longstanding Sports Tours Director (and native South African!) whom many of you will already know, will be accompanying you on the tour; on hand to assist in any way he can, both prior to and during your tour.

The Test Matches

26-30 December 2019 - 1st Test in Centurion
03-07 January 2020 - 2nd Test in Cape Town
16-20 January 2020 - 3rd Test in Port Elizabeth
24-28 January 2020 - 4th Test in Johannesburg

CAPE TOWN - Scenically beautiful, the 'Mother City' is a compelling mix of trendy modern and old-world elegance. Glamorous hotels, world-class dining and stunning vistas merge seamlessly with vibrant nightlife, with the imposing Table Mountain as a backdrop and surrounded by the Cape of Good Hope, romantically thought to be where the two oceans meet. Contemporary art is proudly displayed in a variety of galleries and modern boutique hotels, and wine bars and brandy tasting lounges will appeal to the fashionable set. Pay tribute to the life of South Africa’s most beloved legend, Nelson Mandela, and others at Robben Island, a short boat cruise from Cape Town harbour. Perhaps stroll around the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, a working harbour and hub of entertainment and shopping opportunities.

PORT ELIZABETH - Port Elizabeth is known as the Friendly City or Nelson Mandela Bay, and is a laid-back seaside city where sun, sea and surf are a part of daily life. This is an ideal destination to relax and catch up on your sunbathing and take advantage of the protected swimming beaches. A regular sleepy hollow, Port Elizabeth is a major sea port richly steeped in culture and history.  Starting at the city centre, Route 67 encompasses local attractions including art galleries and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Museum.

With over twenty years of experience offering superb South African properties for our discerning clients, it’s fair to say that at ITC Sports Travel we have a sound knowledge of this stunning region. We have hand-selected luxury properties that we know will ‘wow’ you; each offering something unique in its own exceptional setting. These resorts are all favourites for their own distinct reasons and we know you’ll receive first-class service and a very warm welcome.
