British Lions Tour to South Africa - 2021
Q – When will the dates be released?
A – historically the dates are released soon after Japan is over. So we would expect them to be announced late 2019, early 2020. We will be on sale immediately.
Q – Have you any idea on the tour dates?
A – the whole rugby calendar slips a bit from 2021 onwards, so our best guess (and it really is a guess) would be the last 2 weeks of July, first week August.
Q – Where do you think the Tests will be played?
A – our feeling is Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Q – Will there be 3 Tests and how many warm up games?
A – 3 Tests for sure, with no mid weeks. Just earlier warm ups.
Q – What tours will you be offering?
A – we will be featuring a range of modular tours which can be pieced together to make up a 2 or 3 Test experience.
Q – What if I book with you and find my flights don’t fit when I try to book them 11 months out?
A – not a problem. Our packages will be flexible so we will adjust accordingly.
Q - Will you include coach transfers to the games?
A - Yes, we will be including return coach transfers between our hotels and the stadium.
Q - Will you arrange our airport transfers?
A - Many people are worried about this. The answer is simple. Yes, whether you buy your flights from us or not, we will include meet and greet plus private transfers to and from your hotel.
Q - How about a pub function before the games?
A - we hope to have a pint and a BBQ function before each game
Q - Will you be offering a game park experience?
A – yes, we will be offering game viewing outside of Cape Town, plus from Sun City and near Victoria Falls. Also, by huge demand, we will be running tented tours into the world famous Okavanga Delta.
Q – Will you be offering a beach holiday as well?
A – we are excited to offer trips to the heavenly island of Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania. This has become one of the most sought after beach destinations in Africa. Stunning warm waters.
Q – This is a once in a lifetime trip for us, so we would like to include a few major sights. Is that possible?
A – absolutely! Our tours will include not just game parks and beaches, but golfing resorts, Victoria Falls and the wildlife rich Okavango Delta in neighbouring Botswana.
Q – What ball-park figure do you think I should budget for a 2 Test tour?
A – the million dollar question! We expect a 3.5 star, 2 Test tour to start at around £1995 rising to £2990 if you choose to go to all 3 Tests. Flights are extra and will start around £550 economy return.
Q – I have airline points, can I use those?
A – flights are not included in any of our products as we have found our clients prefer to select their own airline based on past experience, frequent flyer memberships, closest airport, class of travel, price, etc. So everyone is free to select their own way of getting there. But, if you need a hand, we are very happy to look after the flights for you.
Q – I live in Dubai – can I book with you?
A – absolutely.You can travel from anywhere in the world to join us in RSA.
Q – I have friends in Cape Town, can I stay with them and just buy match tickets from you?
A – sorry, we are only offering a minimum purchase of 2 Test modules (each Test module will be a 4 night stay).
Q – When will you be able to give me a rough idea on an itinerary costing?
A – anytime. We can give ball-park figures right now. Just email us your thoughts.
