Why local knowledge and expertise really counts
South Africa school rugby tours are special, let’s start with that!
It feels special the minute that you arrive because you can almost feel a culture change; people are smiling and appear glad to see you, even in the airport. A sports tour to South Africa gives your students an experience that will stay with them throughout their lives. So that’s why it needs to be done properly.
South Africa school rugby tours: It’s all in the planning
At Activ4 we believe that there is no substitute for planning and preparation which is why our South African based organiser, Dale, is so important. Dale has spent the last 15 years creating a fantastic sports tour infrastructure which means that you can relax in the knowledge that you are in expert hands. We understand that as the party leader, the tour starts from the moment that you enquire, not the day that you depart.
Rugby Tours South Africa: Tailor-made Itineraries
Although all of our tours are tailor-made we will advise you on the structure of the itinerary and the best places to stay. You are in one of the most exciting places on the planet so we will structure a programme of special excursion visits and ‘Must-Do’ sightseeing opportunities. We understand you can’t see South Africa without a visit to Robben Island but what about the best ‘Game Drive’s’ and how to actually get under the skin of the place. This can only come down to local knowledge and reinforces the point that if you are going to do it, do it right!
Sports Tours South Africa: The Sport
Then there is the sport. Sport in South Africa seems to be in the genes and the opportunities are endless. The key to the best sports tours though are to understand where to pitch the level. Once again this comes down to our expertise, not only on the ground in South Africa but back at head office. You won’t be just a number and your tour manager will be getting to know you and the group so that we can help you to make this a fantastic experience for everyone.
