The Groot Gat experience.

Northern Cape | 23 August

I woke up after a great sleep from the night before and made some coffee, put some of the international rugby on and planned for my day ahead, which included at trip to the Laundromat, stocking up with food for the weekend and a trip to see Kimberley’s Big Hole.

I arrived at the hole at 10h00 and decided to do the tour and experience what it was like back when the diamond rush hit the town. It was very educational and some of the experiences (the underground experience) were a little cheesy but I’m glad I did it. I also got a chance to see the world’s second largest diamond, which was found on site many years ago.

After the tour I did a little walk around the restored old town that was built around the hole. I then returned to the Guest House and carried on with my scrapbook.
