Cullinan Diamond

Enjoy an exclusive glimpse into the inner workings of a gemstone mine on our Cullinan Diamond Mine Tour. With exhibits, the tour presents a picture of the past and present of this vital and tumultuous jewel business.

The tour begins with an hour – long drive from Sandton, where your guide will provide you with a brief history of Pretoria as you pass though en route to the town of Cullinan. Upon arriving you will begin a surface tour of mine and explore the rich history and heritage of mining in South Africa.

Opt for the 2-hour surface tour which is thorough and entertaining, and ideal for travellers with time constraints or younger children. If time is on your side, choose the longer 4-hour underground tour that gives an in-depth and interactive overview of the mine and industry.

Highlights on both tours include the Diamond Display Room, where replicas of famous diamonds are on show and exploring the mock-up, life-sized underground tunnels. Don’t miss the photo opportunity you get standing on the lookout point of the Big Hole, where a volcanic eruption took place 1.2 billion years ago.

At the tour’s end, prepare to be charmed by the Cullinan Diamond Mine market, which presents with an awe-inspiring diamond and jewellery shopping experience. Here, visitors are able to view the end product, and immerse themselves in the birthplace of some of the most flawless, glamorous stones in history.

Highlights

• Experience the history of the famed Cullinan Diamond Mine
• Explore the Diamond Display Room and lookout point to the Big Hole

Cullinan Diamond Mine
Established in 1992 through an initiative by De Beers and the former Premier Diamond Mine, the Cullinan Diamond Mine is renowned as a source of large, high-quality diamonds, including Type II stones. The site is also known as the world’s most important source of rare blue diamonds. One of the largest diamonds ever mined, the Star of Africa, which now forms part of the Queen of England’s Crown Jewels, was discovered in this famous mine.

Mine Tours
The Cullinan Diamond Mine tour is a half-day excursion that gives you an intimate glimpse into the inner workings of a diamond mine and the industry as a whole. The tour introduces visitors to life-size tunnels replicated after those where rare gems were discovered. The tour also includes the Diamond Display Room featuring replicas of the mine’s famous finds, and the grand view at the lookout point of the Big Hole.

Cullinan Diamond Mine market
The Cullinan Diamond Mine on-site market enables visitors to choose their own diamonds from a selection of loose stones, and watch as they are expertly set in a custom design.
