Cape Town is once again the venue for the second Test, starting on January 3, followed by Tests in Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg to round off the series.
The series will be England's third in the new ICC World Test Championships, which launches ahead of this summer's Ashes series against Australia.
In February, the white-ball players take centre stage in three ODIs and three IT20s spanning Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, East London and Centurion.
The last time these two faced off in a Test series was in 2017, when hosts England won 3-1 in what was Joe Root's first series as captain.
England also take on South Africa in the opening game of the Cricket World Cup, live on Sky Sports Cricket from 9.30am on Thursday, May 30.
