Rebel Sharks Durban Tour

The Rebel Sharks Supporters Club have put a package together for you to enjoy a weekend of sun (hopefully) and rugby.

Now there are a few complications due to the fact that we’re organising this on a non-profit basis. The main issue is that we don’t know in advance how many of you will book and the transport costs vary according to the number of people. So the strategy we are adopting is to quote you on the maximum cost which we have estimated based on a smaller number of supporters. Should we fill a vehicle then the cost will go down and we will refund the difference to you. We will collate receipts of all the costs after the weekend is finished and email them out.

So here’s the deal per person:

2 nights B&B accommodation with fully cooked breakfast
All transport costs to Durban return
1 ticket to the Brumbies game in the open stands
Possible get together braai after the game (we are still arranging this)

Here are our minimum, medium and maximum estimates.

Minimum (assumes full vehicle) = R1200.00
Medium (expected) = R1500.00
Maximum (assumes worst case scenario) = R2000.00

So as you can see, the costs come down drastically the more people we get together. Also included in the maximum quote is a 10% buffer for any unforeseen incidentals so that we organisers don’t take any personal risk. Assuming all goes to plan, it’s an automatic R200.00 back. Please specify if you would like a single or double room.

Any other costs (e.g. additional meals) are your responsibility.

The itinerary will look like this:
Friday March 27
– Depart Johannesburg early afternoon
– Arrive at B&B Friday evening

Saturday March 28
– Morning group or individual activity. We might decide to go to uShaka or something along those lines or you can be dropped at the beach for the morning. Matt will be disappearing down to Umkomaas to do some diving so anyone wanting to join him may do so as well.
– Mid-afternoon ride to Kings Park to watch the game
– Post-game braai at the stadium

Sunday March 29
– Midday departure from Durban
– Early evening arrival in Johannesburg

For Durbanites that would like to join us, the cost is R85 for the ticket.

We will let you know closer to the time what will happen with the braai but that wouldn’t be more than R50 pp.

So that’s the plan. If you’re keen, please email us at [email protected] and we’ll get you our account details. Payment must be made in full by 7 March. We realise this is very short notice but this is something of a learning curve for us so next time we’ll be able to give you more time.


  • Thanks to SW for the punt. 🙂

    Yes, please let people know about this. It is a first try out for us in terms of bus trips but I think we can make a success of it.

  • @klempie (Comment 5) :

    I’d consider it, but it’s the drive from Khobar to Riyadh, before that, that might just make the trip a little to long. 😛 😆
