Activities in Kuruman

There is plenty to see and do in and around Kuruman.

THE EYE OF KURUMAN (DIE OOG)

This spring, located in the heart of Kuruman, delivers 20 million litres of fresh water daily. It is home to a very rare, endangered species of cichlid fish.

THE MOFFAT MISSION

In 1820 Robert Moffat and his wife relocated the mission at Seodin in the valley of the Kuruman River. Moffat translated the Bible into seTswana for the first time, and printed it at the Mission.

WONDERWERK CAVE AND BOESMANSGAT

On the road to Danielskuil, one will find two geological marvels: The Wonderwerk Cave which boasts a rich archeological history, and Boesmansgat, a dolomite sinkhole that conceals a deep underwater cave. Please be aware that a visit to Boesmansgat is best suited for the active individual, as hiking down a rocky hillside is required.

KGALAGADI TRANSFRONTIER PARK

The establishment of the 38 000km2 semi-desert savannah park now ensures uninterrupted, large scale nomadic and seasonal movement of wildife and free roaming predators and guarantees long-term conservation. Kuruman is the perfect stop over en route to Kgalagadi, which is 350 km away.
