Même si on ne voit les diamants que dans le magasin situé à la sortie de l’usine, la visite des coulisses de cette mine est particulièrement intéressante. On prend le même ascenseur que les mineurs, on se plie aux mêmes règles de sécurité et on porte les mêmes équipements et surtout, on se rend dans les galeries (-750 mètres) sur les lieux d’extraction du précieux minerai. Visite de presque 4 heures mais sans aucun moment de répit. Nous avons la chance d’avoir un guide passionné (Toy) lui même ancien mineur sur ce site.
