Van Zylsrus Town of Kalahari Region

Go with an open mind - Plenty of drunks, but still very entertaining to watch them

Kuruman Town of Kalahari Region

Good stop over. - We only stopped for the one night from Jo'burg to the Kalahari. We did our shopping in the town at the Spar but had to top up further on for the things they didn't have.

Kuruman Town of Kalahari Region

Passing through... - We have to agree with Christine on the latest Kuruman. The growth in the town far exceeds the infrastructure. Only good to pass through on the way to better destinations.

Kuruman Town of Kalahari Region

Kurumans disappointing demise - We visited Kuruman in 2001, 2006 and again this year in 2013. What a disappointment to see how run down the beautiful Eye of Kuruman is, weeds growing out of the paving, litter floating in the water, toilets a total disgrace - flush handle broken off, filthy and no toilet paper. Walking and driving on the N14 through Kuruman is a nightmare with people reversing out of parking spaces in front of you and stopping randomly in the road. Litter, chaos and overpriced butcheries dominate this little town. Such a pity to see such a slide downwards - this is an unwelcoming destination for tourists. I would avoid the main road of Kuruman at all costs.

Kuruman a one day stopover. - I would definitely recommend a one day stopover in Kuruman. We visited the Moffat Mission, Wonderwerk Cave and The Eye. The Eye is a fresh water spring in the heart of Kuruman that delivers more than 20 Million liters of water a day. Before our visit we were told by other travelers who visited it, that it is very untidy and not nice to visit, so we were very surprised to find it clean and everything in good order. Maybe somebody complained to the right person, because I would definitely recommend a visit to The Eye now. The Wonderwerk Cave is about 40km South of Kuruman on the road to Daniëlskuil. The cave is 140m deep and there is a guide to explain the history of the cave to you. Excavations of the cave is still in progress and it is interesting to see how this work is being done. Moffat Mission was definitely our highlight of the trip, but also in another way the most disappointing. It was wonderful to see where these early missionaries to Africa lived and the sacrifices they had to make to leave Europe behind to bring the Gospel to Africa. The mission station is still in good order and one can also see where Dr David Livingstone stayed while he was stationed here. It was just sad to see that there is not much maintenance being done and that is going to deteriorate very quickly if this continues. Hopefully somebody will jump in and save it in time, but definitely still worth visiting.
