Cape Town - England coach Eddie Jones is keen to see his side improve their away record against the Springboks.
Jones’ England will tour South Africa for a three-Test series in June next year.
It will be England’s first tour to these shores since 2012, when they lost the series 2-0, having drawn the final Test.
England are currently No 2 on the official World Rugby rankings and they will be confident claiming a series victory over the sixth-ranked Springboks, who have endured a torrid last two seasons.
Through the years, England have only won three of 13 Tests against the Springboks played in South Africa - one each in 1972, 1994 and 2000.
Jones is eager for them to improve that record.
“A three-Test series against South Africa is going to be a big challenge but a fantastic opportunity for this team," Jones told England Rugby’s official website.
"England have only ever won three games in South Africa so we have a chance to create some history by winning the series.”
In overall the overall head-to-head stakes, the Boks lead England 23-13, with two draws.
Following the three-Test series next June, the two nations will also clash in a one-off Test at Twickenham on November 3, 2018.
Incoming series 2018 - South Africa v England:
June 9: Ellis Park, Johannesburg
June 16: Free State Stadium, Bloemfontein
June 23: Newlands, Cape Town
