Wales Rugby Tour of South Africa

29 JUNE - 21 JULY 2022

Two true titans of international rugby, Wales head to South Africa in 2022 for a goliath Test series.

Following the disappointment of the 2021 Lions Tour being played behind closed doors, we are ecstatic to return once again to South Africa. From the history of the Drakensberg, to the surf in Durban, to the bucket-list experience of a Safari, South Africa is the ultimate touring destination.

The expert Venatour and Strachan Sports Travel team will provide you with the opportunity to explore the wonderful surroundings with a selection of excursions to immerse yourself in the culture of South Africa.

Please note that match locations are subject to final confirmation. The itineraries below will change to reflect the match locations.
