Rustenburg, North West Province

Stadium: Royal Bafokeng Stadium

A bit of research into Rustenburg will confirm suspicions that this is a spot which is a little bit in the middle of nowhere – not that this is necessarily a bad thing.

It started life as a mining town since large deposits of platinum can be found in two locations just outside it. The town itself is pretty and relatively crime free which means visitors should feel safe to wander around and explore.

There are a number of game parks in the area if you feel like a bit of safari action after the football and the world famous Sun City complex is not far away if you feel like some glitz and a mini South African Las Vegas experience.

If you want to burn some energy, the Magaliesberg Canopy Tour is an eco-adventure experience; zig-zag down a mountain on long steel cables with guides pointing out local fauna and flora. Those with more sedate tastes, can enjoy exploring the historic buildings in the town, and soaking up the laid back atmosphere.
