Transport is provided from your hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria to the world famous Cullinan Diamond Mine. Visit the Cullinan diamond mine, where a diamond of 3106 Carats were discovered in 1905.

You'll have the option of a surface mine tour or an underground mine tour. A surface tour comprises a nine minutes DVD, a model of an underground tunnel, the mine shaft, the hoist room and big hole. The tour lasts for 1 and half to 2 hours. The underground mine tour takes about 4 hours.

You then walk to other levels where you will see the ore being tipped, crushed and hoisted up. You also visit the administration offices and workshop underground.
