Gary Kirsten to popularise cricket tourism

CAPE TOWN

Cricketer Gary Kirsten has collaborated with Cape Africa Tours to launch Gary Kirsten Travel & Tours in South Africa. Following the demand for coaching at his Cricket Academy in Cape Town and Durban, the idea was conceived to start a travel and tours division to offer individuals and teams a complete travel package.

The initiative is the brainchild of Gary Kirsten and Andrew Russell, Owner, Cape Africa Tours. The Cricket Academy has witnessed an encouraging response from the Indian market as well with 24 budding professionals already having visited the academy in October 2013. Many more groups from India are soon expected to train at the Academy until February 2015.

“Teams want to know they are travelling with a reputable, experienced Tour Operator – and with fourteen years of experience in the industry, and having handled countless inbound tours catering for all ages and abilities, Cape Africa Tours was the natural choice for us to partner with. We are excited about affording local players the opportunity to compete against talented international players and of course, having the opportunity to showcase South Africa’s facilities and cricket talent to the rest of the world,” commented Kirsten.
