The Tour

Experience Africa!

Join Professional Rugby player Joe Pietersen on a conservation safari, coupled with a weekend of rugby at the Tshwane 10s. This 6-night experience includes an exclusive day of tracking and working with wild dogs alongside conservationists on the ground.

Home will be Ugebezi Explorer Camp, located in the heart of the African bush, in the Greater Kruger Park Biosphere. From the camp you fall in rhythm with the African heartbeat, doing two daily safari activities, Big 5 walks, and safaris in an open vehicle.

The African Rugby Safari Tour 2019

One full day will be devoted to a hands-on conservation experience, where you will join conservationists in the field, tracking, darting, vaccinating or collaring wild dogs, Africas most endangered predator.

All meals will be enjoyed around the campfire, while you reflect on your day’s experiences. Fall asleep to roaring lions in the distance or laughing hyenas nearby.

Guests will be hosted in Pretoria for a 3-night stay during the Tshwane 10s, while having VIP access at the event. Join the coaching clinic hosted by The Atlas Foundation as you contribute to their vital skillshare and fundraising.

The Tshwane 10’s weekend will be spent with South Africa rugby legends like Bakkies Botha and others, great live music, food and a festival of sport. Your travel will directly impact The Atlas Foundation, contributing to the fundraising.

The group of 8 guests will travel in a private vehicle to and from all accommodations and venues, accompanied by Joe Pietersen throughout.
