England Cricket Tour to South Africa 2019/20
St George’s Tour – Port Elizabeth – 3rd Test
It has been over 15 years since England last played a Test match at South Africa’s most historic ground – St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth. Famous for its vibrant brass band, the ground almost always gets a result (i.e. not a draw) due to a good pitch and the dry, moderate weather the seaside city enjoys.
Due to overwhelming demand around the Port Elizabeth Test, we are offering this second tour but, as accommodation is scarce, we are unable to offer our usual standard. Our chosen accommodation – Ibhayi Guest Lodge – is a 24 room, 4-star guest house, which is perfectly comfortable but without the bells and whistles of an international hotel. However, the upside is that it is more affordable. And, of course, the inclusions and service levels from your dedicated Tour Manager will be exactly the same as always!
