World Rugby Experience @ Nooitgedacht is the largest private rugby collection in the world, exhibiting the legendary collections of Theo Geustyn and Choet Visser in an innovative way that encourages engagement with the historical items on display, as well as interaction among visitors. The venue, situated within the picturesque Nooitgedacht Village, less than 10km from Stellenbosch, creates an immersive experience of the rich cultural heritage encapsulated by one of South Africa's most beloved sports, while carrying this heritage forward into new, unexplored territory. The venue also includes Ruck & Maul restaurant, managed by a local legend of the industry, Dom Mazza (owner of Gino's in Stellenbosch). Here guests can enjoy wood-fired pizzas and electrifying live game screenings. This is a place to explore a history full of sensation and intrigue, to gather with friends, to make new acquaintances and to discover what it means to be South African.
The woodfire pizza oven, adjacent to the Ruck & Maul kitchen churns out famous Mazza-family style pizzas.
