The Eye of Kuruman, also known as Die Ogg (Afrikaans for The Eye), is a natural spring which delivers water to the town all year around.
In this arid area of the Kalahari water is a very valuable resource, so the town of Kuruman formed around this water source.
The area is now central to a number of Iron Ore and coal mines in the area, and spplies the vast farms in the area.
The Eye of Kuruman is a park open to the public with a small lake of water. A small entrance fee is charged.
Small mining town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, Kuruman is well known for the Oog van Kuruman, or Eye of Kuruman in English. This natural water spring supplies the town with all the water it needs, although being located in a very dry area.
