Dinokeng is an area in northern Gauteng. The name means “a place of rivers” and it is a cultural and nature hub which attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The major attractions in Dinokeng are the town of Cullinan – where the Cullinan diamond was found, Roodeplaat Dam – popular with fishing and watersports enthusiasts, and the Dinokeng Game Reserve – the first free-ranging Big 5 reserve in South Africa.

Covering over 200,000 hectares, the Dinokeng region includes the Roodeplaat and Rust De Winter dam areas, as well as the towns of Cullinan, Hammanskraal, Rayton, Moloto, and Refilwe. It lies approximately 75km from Johannesburg and 25km from Pretoria, and is ideal for a weekend breakaway to overworked city dwellers or just to drive through for a day’s excursion.
