A perfect place to get away from the huslte and bustle and just relax!
Located 120km west of Springbok on the harsh but beautifull diamond coast of South Africa and in close proximity to the Richtersveld National Park.
The Diamond Route has lured geologists, adventurers and fortune seekers for over a century. Some were lucky while the fabulous riches forever avoided others all of their lives.
Many of the gem quality diamonds remain buried deep under the desert sands while other must be dived out of the ice cold waters of the Benguela Current. Along this route you will step into a past that is rich in history, heartache and wayward romance. Just follow the glitter of the ‘shiny stones’.
Situated in the north-western corner of South Africa’s rugged Northern Cape is the stretch of pristine coastline aptly named The Diamond Coast. These shores have remained virtually unknown to the public at large as it is within the restricted and previously forbidden diamond mining areas.
The valuable mineral treasures hidden within its sands have made these restrictions necessary but diamonds are not the only treasures. This Sandveld has been jealously guarded and while still largely unspoilt and crime-free is home to many indigenous plants, animals and insects.
The coastline, with its flowing dunes and mysterious shipwrecks, has been opened to the fortunate few who can participate in our organised guided tours. And any visitor to the West Coast or Richtersveld will find that a tour of The Diamond Coast will vastly enhance the experience of this unique mix of coastal plain and semi arid inland.
