Charlotte Edwards' side are scheduled to play seven games against India and South Africa in August and September, and the highlight is a first Test against the Indians since 2006.
Wormsley Cricket Ground will host the game between August 13-16 ahead of a three-match one-day international series against the same opponents - two at Scarborough and one at Lord's.
Those games, on August 21, 23 and 25 are followed by three Twenty20 internationals against South Africa on September 1, 3 and 7.
Chelmsford, Northampton and Edgbaston are the venues for those matches.
The England and Wales Cricket Board's head of women's cricket Clare Connor said: "We fully anticipate both sides will provide strong opposition for England in all three formats of the game.
"This is a hugely exciting programme of women's international cricket, and it is fantastic that we will once again get to see England battle it out against one of the world's top teams in a Test match.
"The recent Women's Ashes Test in Perth was a wonderful demonstration of women's cricket at its best and I expect a similarly tight contest when England take on India at Wormsley in August.
"Last summer saw record numbers of spectators through the gates to watch England regain the Women's Ashes, and this year's international schedule presents a similarly exciting proposition for cricket fans up and down the country to see some of the best women's cricketers in the world in action."
