Full description
The Cullinan Diamond Mine is home to one of the biggest and most productive diamond-bearing kimberlite pipes in the world. It has produced some of the largest diamonds ever found. The largest diamond, the Cullinan, was chiselled into 98 individual diamonds including the "Great" and "Lesser Stars" of Africa, which are now set in the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.

Your tour begins with a 15-minute video before you are led into the high security premises of the mine. There you will be shown the workings and machinery of the mine, before you visit the enormous open-cast mine which is 4 times larger than the famous Kimberley "Big Hole".

After visiting the mine, you will have the opportunity to visit the Cullinan Diamond Mine market for an unforgettable diamond and jewellery shopping experience. At the conclusion of your diamond experience, you will be returned back to your accommodation.
