Shaped like a giant, traditional African hat and wrapped with a Teflon-mesh membrane designed to catch and reflect natural light, this R4.5 billion stadium, built for the 2010 World Cup, is Cape Town’s most striking piece of contemporary architecture. The hour-long tours will take you behind the scenes into the VIP and press boxes as well as the teams’ dressing rooms.

The 55,000-capacity stadium is home ground for the soccer team Ajax Cape Town, and has been used for big pop concerts by the likes of Coldplay and U2, as well as a memorial service for Nelson Mandela.

Across from the new stadium, a section of the old Green Point Stadium forms the viewing platform for a running and cycling track.
