Join the All Blacks on tour in Argentina and South Africa


All Blacks fans looking for the ultimate rugby holiday will have the opportunity to join the team on tour in Argentina and South Africa later this year.

The All Blacks return to Argentina in September to play Argentina in La Plata and then head to Johannesburg to play South Africa at Ellis Park the following week.

All Blacks Tours, the company exclusively appointed by New Zealand Rugby to provide official All Blacks supporters travel, have just released their exciting range of tour packages for these two matches.

Options include:

• A once-in-a-lifetime combined South America and South Africa tour
• A 15 night tour taking in the highlights of South America, including the world-famous Iguazu Falls
• 11 and 7-night tours to South Africa including the opportunity to go on safari and get up close with the Big Five, as well as visit Cape Town
• A 4-night option in Buenos Aires or Johannesburg for those short on time

Supporters can book their place on tour with the All Blacks by visiting www.allblackstours.com or calling 0800 87 2011.

Packages include access to unique tour events, sightseeing excursions and merchandise as well as accommodation, travel and official match tickets.

All Blacks Tours General Manager, David Caldwell, says demand for these destinations is expected to be strong.

“Argentina are constantly improving their game, and made the All Blacks work hard for a win last year. This year’s match is sure to be another exciting one, and South America is of course a fantastic place to visit. We’ve picked out the best highlights to include in our tours, including wineries in Chile and the Iguazu Falls, which is considered one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

“Some described the 2013 match against South Africa at Ellis Park as “epic”, with the All Blacks winning at the historic ground for the first time in 16 years. No doubt the nail-biting action will be repeated in 2014. All Blacks Tours has arranged spectacular sightseeing options around the game. Fans will get up close with the Big Five at Pilanesberg National Park, and discover the interesting areas of Soweto, Johannesburg and Cape Town. They’ll even get up Table Mountain.”

All Blacks Tours has a number of other packages currently on sale for other 2014 All Blacks fixtures, including domestic Tests in Auckland, Dunedin, Hamilton, Napier and Wellington, and for the Bledisloe Cup matches in Sydney and Brisbane.

Fans can sign up at www.allblackstours.com to be the first to hear about new packages and offers as they are released.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
