Details

In 1904, the biggest diamond in the world was discovered in Cullinan. Eventually split into several pieces, the diamond produced many gems that are now part of the British Crown jewels, including the 530.2-carat Greater Star of Africa.

Cullinan is more than just a mining town, however. Home also to sandstone buildings, art galleries, the largest man-made hole, and an Italian POW museum, Cullinan makes for an interesting morning tour.

After lunch at Big Mama’s restaurant, move onto Onverwacht, a village with plenty of history. Take a donkey-cart ride, listen to local residents tell stories, and enjoy tea-time with traditional delicacies.
