Itinerary

Cullinan Diamond Mine Tour

Tour the Cullinan Mine

Depending on the option you choose, you will either do the underground mine tour or a tour of the surface of the mine. You will be picked up from your hotel and transported to the Cullinan Diamond mine which is situated 40 kilometer east of Pretoria. Your guide will inform you of some interesting facts on the way. If you chose the underground mine tour option, you will be given personal protective equipment to wear. From an overall to the miner's light on your hard hat. You will look like a real miner! After you are all set you will be going down an elevator into the depths of the mine. A depth of 763 meters to be exact. Your guide at the mine has many years experience. You will be in safe hand on this interesting and not to be missed tour. Should you choose the surface tour you will be given a hard hat and you will embark on a journey on the surface of the mine on an open vehicle. Basically an open vehicle safari, but on a mine and not a nature reserve. You will see all the sections the diamond process goes through. A chance to buy diamonds will be provided at the end of the tour. Also some time will be given to enjoy lunch before returning safely to your hotel.
