Immerse yourself in the Springbok Experience

Send to Kindle

Come and visit the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum for the ultimate rugga experience. Here you can learn about South African rugby history as well as more about the Springboks. This extremely modern museum has so much to offer and it exudes passion and love for this magnificent sport.

The rugby shrine in here is probably the biggest attraction. It is one of 20 audio visual exhibits with touch screens where you can learn more about the growth of coloured and black rugby before the form of the union in 1992 as well as an insight into the springboks play. There are additional audio visual exhibits, more than twelve interactive touch screen displays, 20 projectors and 64 flat screens all crammed with rugby facts and information.

Garments worn by players are also here for all to see including the boots worn by Joel Stransky when he made that drop goal in the world cup of 95 and the jersey Francis Pienaar wore in this game is also here. There are a number of other jerseys and memorabilia on display.

The best part of all is the 4 trial zones where fans and enthusiasts can practice their passes, fitness, kicking and reaction times with a virtual coach.

The magnificent field at this museum is astounding and is home to a monument of green and gold with life size goalposts. This will also be the spot where the handprints of former national captains will be cast in bronze.

This is the most interactive, interesting and informative museum you could possible imagine and is a big hit with everyone who steps in the doors.

About 

Michelle has a huge love for all things aquatic, particularly marine life. Her main passion lies with Great White Sharks, although she is interested in all marine species and their well-being. She volunteers at the Two Oceans Aquarium in her spare time and would spend all her time by the sea or surrounded by nature if possible. After spending 7 years in the United Kingdom, she has returned back home to Cape Town to be nearer to her family and to her ‘favourite place in the world’. She enjoys camping, fishing, watching rugby and going out with her friends and family to try out new restaurants and bars.
