Just twenty minutes drive from the Pretoria city centre is the quaint little town of Cullinan where time seems to have stood still. The big hole at the Cullinan Diamond Mine is 4 times the size of the Kimberley ‘Big Hole’. It was here that the largest gem diamond ever found in the world, the Cullinan Diamond (which now forms part of the British crown jewels) was discovered. A weekend is not enough time to experience the delights of this little town.
