British and Irish Lions tour

What’s it all about

The British and Irish Lions have been undefeated in the twelve years since their last visit to South African shores, where they suffered a narrow defeat in 2009. Indeed revenge will also be high on the agenda of English hearts and minds after the lamentable RWC final in Japan in 2019. Then add to the fact that the world has been so starved of live rugby, nevermind packed stadiums, and this is sure to be the most anticipated series in living memory.

At Steadfast Africa we are primed to help you in every way possible. Each trip could be tailored to suit your group and is flexible in many ways. It is easy for us to build a bespoke Lions trip for your group, no matter how big or small. We are holding capacity at many hotels, top-end villas, luxury train journeys, safaris etc. Everything is very full indeed, but we have you covered.


Please see below Steadfast Africa’s three tour offerings. Two of them take in two Tests over ten days (only need to miss a week of work) and the third is a triple whammy that follows all three Tests. All include a luxury safari and a couple of days in Franschhoek, the jewel of the Cape Winelands.

Important information

Each package is limited to 7 or 8 rooms (7 to 16 people) and involves some group travel and tours, but is ideally suited to those who want to do their own thing too. There are only a handful of group meals and activities. By the same token, they are ideal for a group of friends or a business team building group “charter trip”.

Please note that these tours are not sanctioned by the official Lions body. Also, these packages do not include tickets. Tickets do not yet exist and therefore can’t be included as part of these packages, but we are extremely well positioned to help you buy match tickets, official hospitality passes etc.

Steadfast Africa offers the fairest deposit and payment plan terms – only 20% is required to confirm your place, which is transferable. Should the tour be delayed, then we will move our dates / refund deposits.
