Welcome to DinokengPlace of rivers

Meaning "a place of rivers", Dinokeng is a region in northern Gauteng rich in natural, cultural and historical heritage sites. 

Dinokeng's three major tourist hubs are the historic town of Cullinan, where the world’s largest rough gem-quality diamond was discovered in 1905; the Roodeplaat Dam, a birders paradise; and the Dinokeng Game Reserve, Gauteng's only free-roaming Big Five reserve.

Travellers are invited to come stay and play in Dinokeng, which offers an experience of rolling African bushveld, adventure activities to get your pulse racing, fine dining to satisfy the most particular palate, and a rich and diverse history.

What can undoubtedly be included in Dinokeng's list of “best things” are the many passionate people and enterprising entrepreneurs who live here. Come meet Dinokeng, or host an event here, and experience the region while contributing to the development of the people who live and work here.
