Are you planning a trip to see the Lions Rugby Games? Why not pair it with a magical South African Safari?

Every four years, the best players from the home nations of the United Kingdon come together to play a spectacular game of Rugby. In 2021, South Africa will be the lucky host. 

While understanding that your trip is all about Rugby, it would be a shame not to experience the breath-taking views, scenery and diverse culture that South Africa has to offer. Not only do we boast complete visual bliss, but we are the home to many Big 5 Game Reserves. 

East Cape Tours would be thrilled to turn your trip into something that you will remember and talk about for years to come!



The great thing about Bloemfontein is it’s small, friendly feel which makes it one of South Africa’s most relaxed and welcoming cities.

It’s perfect for passing through and experiencing on a Lions Tour during your journey across South Africa. You can combine nature with the ‘Cheetah Experience’ or understand more about the Anglo-Boer War at the world’s only dedicated museum to the conflicts between 1899 and 1902.

Cape Town is a diverse, beautiful city where the craggy mountain range drops into a glittering blue sea. The pristine white, sandy beaches, the lush Winelands to the East of the city and the famous Table Mountain National Park are some of the highlights that make Cape Town both famous and well worth a visit.

Durban is one of South Africa’s coolest cities yet is often overlooked by visitors in favour of the popular places such as Cape Town and Johannesburg. However, Durban is known as the place with no winter and is the perfect holiday destination all year round.

This city has often been referred to as South Africa’s very own Miami Beach because of its beautiful beaches stretching the ‘Golden Mile’.
