2018 dates to be confirmed
AT A GLANCE
Venues: The Cape Town Stadium
Destinations: Cape Town
The Cape Town Sevens is the South African leg of the World Sevens Series and has been held in a local town since its inception in 1999.
The current event has moved around, having taken place in Durban, George and Port Elizabeth before coming to Cape Town. It is a widely popular rugby competition with both the ‘Blitzbokke’- as our team is fondly known - and South African fans.
With only seven players on the field per team at any one time, the action is fast and furious, with many excellent displays of skill, perseverance and speed. The Cape Town Stadium, where the event is taking place, is ideal for spectators as each angle delivers fantastic views. Many fans come dressed to the nines; wigs, full dress up and vuvuzelas are commonplace. As the Cape Town event is local for South Africans, our Cape Town Sevens 2017 packages make it easy for any South African to join the festivities. Book only your accommodation and your weekend pass to the action, or upgrade your package to include flights, transfers and additional VIP hospitality treatment.
Get ready to listen to the roar of the crowd as Cecil Afrika, Rosco Speckman and Seabelo Senatla outplay the opposition to score yet another blitz try under the poles. Make sure you get your hands on your Cape Town Sevens tickets before they get snapped up by other eager rugby-goers!

From the busy waterfront to the mountains, forests, beaches and vineyards, Cape Town’s bounty of things to see and do can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned travellers. Start with a visit to the V&A Waterfront, the most visited tourist attraction in South Africa featuring world-class shopping, excellent dining and entertaining nightlife. Take a stroll along the Sea Point Promenade to the Green Point Urban Park, which showcases some spectacular public artworks. Alternatively, tackle one of Cape Town’s many hiking trails - Newlands Forest offers a leisurely wander while Lion’s Head poses more of a challenge. As far as mountains go, no trip to Cape Town would be complete without riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain to soak up the views from one of the New 7th Wonders of the World. Depending on your timeframe, explore the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, go pub-hopping down Long Street or go wine tasting in the Winelands (or, closer to the city, the Constantia Wine Route).
