Anyone who has ever been to South Africa, let alone lived there, will tell you that sport runs through the country's veins. The warm weather and outdoors certainly helps!! Competitive in both team and individual sports South Africa is probably best known on the sporting field as one of the global rugby super powers. Winners of 3 World Cups, the Springboks are a national treasure and enjoy some great rivalries with giants both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.

After winning the World Cup in 2019, until the next World Cup, South Africa are the team to beat. The Springboks have proved a great unifier and show a change in the social dynamics of the country.

Every year the Boks tour Europe in the autumn and draw sell out crowds. At Braai Nation Travel we aim to bring South African fans who live in Europe together to watch the games. Events where you can enjoy South Africa food and drinks over the weekend and group seating at the games gives the fans a home away from home feel about it all. With the Blitzbokke also playing on the HSBC Sevens Series we also arrange events in England and France in the summer.

The exciting announcement of South African provincial teams being included in the newly formed United Rugby Championship will give us further opportunity for supporters to watch their provincial teams in Europe now and we will be looking at arranging packages over weekends in Ireland, Scotland and Wales where supporters can go and watch two matches. This is all dependant on the fixture list being released so watch this space!!

Join us on one of our trips and make some new friendships or rekindle some old ones along the way.
