Full itinerary

  • Day1

    Departure UK

    Make your way to your departure airport to check in for your flight to South Africa.

    Flight from London Heathrow to Johannesburg

    Premium Economy and Business Class upgrades on request. We will have both direct and indirect flights within our tours. It is simply not possible for all supporters to travel to and from South Africa on direct flights, therefore some of our bookings will be allocated indirect routings.

  • Day2

    Arrive South Africa

    Upon arrival in South Africa, transfer with your group to your hotel in Johannesburg and check in for your 3 night stay.

    Welcome to Johannesburg! Your base for your stay in Johannesburg is the district of Sandton, known as ‘Africa’s richest square mile’. Sandton is known as one of the safer areas of the region and a popular choice of Gullivers over many tours to South Africa. 

    Whilst in Johannesburg why not take some time to learn about the history, it’s hard to believe Johannesburg didn't exist 130 years ago. For most, Soweto is synonymous with Johannesburg and with resistance to apartheid, South Africa’s former policy of racial segregation. The township’s complex past is visible in Soweto’s moving museums, historical monuments, and strong traditions, and is well worth a visit on an organised tour. Constitution Hill is another of South Africa's most important historical sites which gives insight into South Africa’s recent history.

    This evening get together with your Tour Manager for Welcome Drinks. Share a drink, reminisce on past Lions tours and share the excitement of the upcoming Game, Series and your stay in South Africa.

    Welcome Drinks

  • Day3

    Today sees the third of this series Gullivers Big Event days with a rugby day. An invitational Gullivers side (an opportunity for you to dust off the boots and play alongside your fellow tour members) will take on some local sides in a festival of rugby. You can be assured of a great camaraderie, true rugby atmosphere, singing, raffles, mixing with the locals and rugby stories.

    Gullivers Big Events - Eve of Test Rugby Event

    Bring your boots for a game or come along and support the Gullivers Barbarians at our rugby club visit in Johannesburg; a great opportunity to mix with the locals. Always a popular day out with our supporters, food will be provided after the games and we anticipate there will be plenty of opportunity for you to swap stories and out sing the Springboks supporters in their own backyard, in preparation for the final test match tomorrow.

  • Day4

    Match Day

    Today is the day we have been building up to, the third and final test match of the series between the Springboks and the British & Irish Lions.
