South Africa v England 4th Test: Johannesburg

Tour dates: 23rd- 29th January 

The Bullring, namely The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, is the largest cricket ground in South Africa (a capacity of 34 000) and definitely one of the more intimidating arenas in world cricket. It is also of course on the highveld, 6000 ft above sea level, so it’s also the home of real pace bowling – Joffra Archer would be interesting! This is the 4th and final Test Match of the series, and is another popular venue. The suggested itinerary includes a convenient 4-star hotel option, but we can of course book another hotel in Johannesburg if that is what you would prefer, just get in contact with us to discuss your preferences.

This package includes match tickets for all 5 days, and transfers each day. We are happy to quote for flights, or you can just take the ground package. There is also an option for a shared hospitality package – please ask us for details.


Day 1: 23rd January 2020
On arrival into OR Tambo (Johannesburg) Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel for your 6-night stay. Johannesburg is pulsating, vibrant and energetic – it’s that kind of city. Today the inner city has a distinctly African feel with many hawkers selling their wares on the sidewalks. In the northern suburbs of Sandton, Rosebank and Houghton suburban bliss abounds with tree-lined avenues and gated suburbs. It’s the largest and wealthiest city in South Africa, packed with restaurants, shopping centres, theatres and late-night entertainment spots.

Day 2: 24th January 2020
This morning you will be collected from your hotel, arriving at the ground in plenty of time for the start of this fascinating test match. You will be in shaded Grandstand seats. There is also the option of being in the shared hospitality section of the main Grandstand, and the package includes lunch & drinks for days 1-4 (Day 5 on a cash basis) – supplement £650 per person.
