South Africa Sports Tour August 2017


Culford is delighted to announce that we will be running a rugby, hockey and netball tour to Cape Town, South Africa. We will be departing from the UK on 15th August 2018 and returning to the UK on 29th August 2018 (subject to flight schedule availability).

The Rainbow Nation is arguably the most exciting country to visit on a school sports tour. South Africa’s breath-taking scenery and enthralling history, coupled with a national passion for all team sports, lays down a unique challenge to all teams visiting this remarkable landscape.

No other country offers an itinerary fusing the hustle and bustle of modern cities with stunning beaches, world-leading safaris and matches played at both sea level and the altitudes on the high veldt. On the fields and courts, touring teams are guaranteed challenging fixtures in all regions of the country.

The trip is being organised by specialist group tour operator Rayburn Tours who have been operating trips for schools since 1965 and have a regional office in Cape Town to prepare itineraries with local knowledge. Rayburn Tours are ABTA bonded and ATOL protected, as well as being accredited by Learning Outside the Classroom and the School Travel Forum.

If you are interested in a place on the trip, please contact Mr Andrew Northcote on andrew.northcote@culford.co.uk
