Sports Tours

Are you a dedicated sports fan with a dream of visiting Africa? Why not combine one of our Sports Tours with an unforgettable visit to one of Africa's iconic safari destinations.

There are a number of iconic sports events that take place across the unique continent of Africa. Why not make your trip to Africa so much more by combining one of our Sports Tour with a magic African safari? Explore world-class destinations like the Cape Town, Table Mountain, Westen Cape Winelands, the world-famous Okavango Delta in Botswana, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. Our tours are updated regularly and we include Rubgy, Cricket,Ironman and Running events. Our directors and safari planners, Rob & Clyde are both fanatic sports fans and have travelled and worked extensively across Africa. The best approach is to get in touch with us to start the planning process and build your dream itinerary around the event.

Sports Tours FAQs

Does Tailormade Africa offer sport travel packages?

We don't offer sport travel packages for all our events. Our add-on safari trips are all bespoke and planned according to your travel personality, timeline and budget. Some of our Road Running events on our sister website Africa Marathons consists of all-inclusive packages.

How much time is required to arrange a sports tour?

This all depends on you. Most people like to plan well in advance to make sure they are getting the best for the allowed time they have in Africa and there are usually a few changes to the itinerary before the final decision is made. But we love a challenge, so we can arrange things well in advance or with limited time, within reason, of course.

Do you only cater for itineraries around the events on this page?

As our itineraries are all uniquely designed to suit you, we can arrange add-on safari or travel packages for any event in Africa, even if we don't have it listed on our website here.

How many days do I need to experience Africa?

We usually recommend between 4 and 10 days, but with a sports tour, this could be quite different. Some tours allow for time between events and this time can be used to explore Africa. Alternatively, a few days can be added pre-or post-event. Once we start the planning process with you, it will give a better indication of how many days suit you and your family or group.
