Just one quick call out from me....It's worth checking the new SA Immigration and Border control policy brought in last year if travelling with a minor ( under 18). A bit different but stringently applied. Stopped me from going there last year as you need your child's original or certified birth certificate ( which I didn't have with me here).
One parent travelling with a minor needs more info.

Thanks for that, mate, much appreciated. You going? 2 x "home" games for you.

17 rand to a gbp...so a pint of Castle comes in at a shade under one of your Great British pounds.

I looked online a couple of days ago to go to Port Elizabeth for just the Kings match on 26/11/2017, flying out on 24th from Heathrow and returning on 28th, just the flights was £372 return on BA, also with flights + 3/4 nights hotel on BA it was about £800+.
Hotels would need more research, etc....

Fantastic to read that you've got traction on an organized trip for these games.
Envious of organized tours like this, especially to new venues...much more fun as a group...and better agin if organized by someone else for you!
I get to see games flying 'solo' in an out from odd locations ( like Nairobi this time around), it's ok but not as good as a 'tour'

If you need any local intel let me know as I work around a load of Saffers here in East Africa...all rugby mad...all un-sure of what to make of the Pro 14 etc...

They all try and imitate my accent when talking all things rugby...

Kwazulu Natal meets Teifi valley....barely a language.

The organised trip is staying at the Radison Blue which is £180 per room.
If you check booking.com they did have an offer on the same hotel.
Do you fancy doing a Safari whils out in PEZ?

Details about the Safari:

Amakhala Game Reserve Amakhala Game Reserve is an ideal choice for your Big 5 Safari destination.
This 7,500 ha reserve is renowned for its truly awesome topography, created by the slowly meandering Bushman’s River running through it. Guided by experienced rangers, you can return to nature and explore the diverse wildlife and the rugged landscapes of the Eastern Cape valley and bushveld on Amakhala Game Reserve. 
Morning and evening game drives in open Land Rovers through Amakhala Game Reserve will leave you in awe of the diverse vegetation and spectacular scenery which abounds here. Not only do we offer the much sought after Big 5, but there are over 16 antelope species, zebra, giraffe and many small interesting species. Our elephant sightings are likely to the highlight of your stay. In addition to game drives, we also offer boat cruises and guided walks. For a change of pace, enjoy bird watching and game spotting whilst gently cruising down the Bushman’s River! Refreshment breaks have been included to make your safari experience that much more enjoyable. This bush experience will create memories, which will linger as long as the African sun sets.

I was v lucky that I used this company when I went on the SA Lions tour back in 2009. We had such a great time
with the owner of the company and his friends.

Have kept in touch. When it was announced that 2 teams were joining the PRO12 I contacted the team on the ground. A great trip has been organised and it will be fun!
I just hope it will be a succesful frip and that everyone will enjoy.

Booked the flights today. Looking forward to it all, as it's the first time in SA.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

If you go on holidaypirates.com there’s flights to South Africa from £343 return around the dates of the games.
