Port Nolloth:

"Divers Haven on the Diamond Coast...". Port Nolloth is situated 144km north-west of Springbok. It was established in 1854 as a small vessel harbour as well as a railway junction for the copper mining industry. The harbour's narrow and shallow entrance made it unsuitable for ore carriers. The copper for export was brought to the coast along a 96-mile long narrow gauge railway from the mines near Okiep. It continues to serve this purpose until well into the 20th century, but was never called on to handle any significant volume of cargo.

During more recent years Port Nolloth emerged as a centre of small-scale recovery mining. Perfect diamonds were discovered 6 miles south of Port Nolloth in 1925 and the village came to life once more, buzzing with popularity and high fever. In the 1960's it was discovered that this was the only coast in the world where gem quality diamonds could be dredged from the bottom of the sea by remote deep sea operations or by hardy divers. Sometimes many diamonds are found (a jackpot!) and sometimes few or nothing at all. Boats have come and gone and fortunes have been made and lost.

Port Nolloth is also the only holiday resort along the diamond coast. Fishing trawlers and dredgers against spectacular sunsets and the clean beaches makes this town an ideal holiday spot. Examples of the Nama culture can be seen at Lekkersing, which is inland, north of Port Nolloth. The bay on which the Port sits was known by the indigenous Namaqua people as "Aukwatowa" ("where the water took away the old man"). Its location was marked by Bartolomeu Dias on his epic voyage around the Cape of Good Hope in 1487.

Attractions and Activities

Port Nolloth Museum Centre:
The Port Nolloth Museum Centre actually consists of two small but well done Museum sites. The Port Nollth Museum is dedicated to the history of Port Nolloth and the culture in the area. It includes exhibits on the Khoekhoen, town history, diamond diving and shipwrecks. The Port Nolloth biodiversity of the two contrasting environments: the Atlantic Ocean and the desert-like areas of the coastal dunes and the Richtersveld. Live exhibits of small marine creatures, reptiles and invertebrates are combined with museum displays. Both museum sites are also suitable for the younger generation. Local arts and crafts can be purchased in the museum shops.

Port Nolloth is a good place for birding and more than 80 species have been recorded including many endemics. Highlights for birders are black cormorant, cape cormorant, crowned cormorant, African black oystercatcher, hartiaubs gull, three species of sunbirds and barlow's lark.

Local tour operators offer tours into the Richtersveld (including the Orange River) and diamond tours to Kleinzee are possible.
