Sadly we did not get further than to look through the fence at this Natural Wonder! The area is run down and full of litter and vagrants and we feared for our safety. What an opportunity the Municipality is missing!

Make sure your cars are locked and windows closed and do not leave your car with valuables in sight. In fact do not stop and just drive straight through. We had a police escort out of town as we were targeted by criminals trying to...More

A southern hemisphere 1st place holder has been neglected and mismanaged into utter tragedy. How this can be allowed to happen escapes ones understanding. Had to pay R14 per person to enter, which is not much, but was not provided with any type of receipt....More

On our visit visit ever to Kuruman, we were looking forward to visiting the Kuruman Eye. Well, I have never experienced anything more disappointing attraction in my lifetime. The park area was filthy, unkempt, dangerous for walking due to holes and rising brickwork as well...More
