Kimberley Diamond Route

Kimberley Diamond Route

The motive for the route's design is to rehabilitate and conserve six hectares of land for every hectare the company mines, as a way to redress the balance between the use of natural resources and sustaining the ecosystem.

Combined the route makes up 250 000 hectares across South Africa and Botswana. These properties give people a chance to commune with the diversity of nature – from cultivated gardens to mopani woodlands and riverine forests to savannah grassland and the sandscapes of the Kalahari.
