Kleinzee and Koingnaas

This restricted area lies some 96 km west of Springbok, on the Diamond Coast. The diamond mining operations date back to 1927 and the most southerly operations of the mine, at Koingnaas, only started in the 1970s. The strandveld is in excellent condition, but visitors still need permits to enter the area.
