10 Reasons Why You Should Never Visit Cape Town

1. Nothing to do

Cape Town is probably one of the most vibey cities on the planet! There certainly isn’t a lack of activities here – in fact, your schedule will be jam-packed if you visit.

We have found a list of great activities to keep you busy:

The Springbok Experience

The Springbok Experience is a world-class, modern interactive museum telling South Africa’s story through the eyes of its most powerful sport. It offers a fun and entertaining experience for the whole family and is a ‘must-do’ attraction at the heart of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

The museum features more than 60 audio visual displays where visitors can watch the history of South African rugby unfold, set among cases displaying historic objects such as famous trophies, jerseys, boots and other memorabilia. It makes a perfect venue for exclusive corporate events as well.
