Test matches between England and South Africa are always a hotly contested affair, resulting in world-class cricketing action and memorable moments.
The Gary Kirsten 275 Supporters Tour gives you the opportunity to spend New Year’s Eve in Cape Town, one of the world’s tourism hotspots, and then watch the second test (2-6 January 2016) of the 2015-16 England/South Africa series at Newlands cricket ground, the most picturesque sporting arena in the world.
This special tour is hosted by legendary cricket player and coach Gary Kirsten, and runs from 30 December 2015 to 8 January 2016. There are four booking options to suit the needs (and budgets) of different English cricket supporters.
All packages include 9 nights bed and breakfast accommodation at a premium three or four star hotel in Cape Town, seating in the Member’s Pavilion at Newlands cricket ground, Airport transfers, transport to and from Newlands on all test days, and access to a representative of Gary Kirsten Travel and Tours at all times.
Tour participants will also receive a special Gary Kirsten 275 golf shirt and tour bag, as well as a print of a painting of Newlands by Richie Ryall, South African painter and former professional cricketer, signed by the artist and Gary Kirsten. These items add to the fun of the tour and will take you back to this once in a lifetime opportunity every time you see the painting, use the bag or wear the shirt.

The “275” in the tour name refers to Gary Kirsten’s best ever test batting result, scored while playing against England in December 1999.
Playing against highly-competitive rival teams helps to shape a cricket player’s style and motivates him to dramatically improve his skills and standard of play.
His fond memories of playing many tough games against England, coupled with the fact that Newlands is his home ground (and Cape Town his home town), make this an extra-special test for Gary.
Join in the magic of this special occasion and have the opportunity to see some of the sights in and around spectacular Cape Town during your stay.
England has not toured South Africa since 2010 so there will be high demand for test match tickets, as well as a possible shortage of suitable accommodation. Make your booking ASAP to avoid disappointment and the risk of losing this opportunity.
