Welcome to El Dorado Hotel Kuruman
Kuruman is home to the EL DORADO HOTEL, with 73 rooms to offer. Easy to reach on the N4 and in a quiet part of town. We believe in a family friendly establishment, so please don’t leave your children at home.
Kuruman, because of its abundant supply of water, is known as the ‘Oasis of the Kalahari’. Enclosed in a valley, this verdant garden town is very removed from the arid surroundings of the semi-desert. Kuruman is the principle town of the Kalahari and is blessed with a permanent source of water. The fountain commonly known as THE EYE, delivers 20 million liters of crystal clear water daily. This is the largest natural fountain in the Southern Hemisphere.
The surrounding mining and agricultural activities (cattle, sheep, goats and game) support the town’s economy. Various minerals are mined in the area e.g. iron ore, manganese ore and tiger eye.
The town, with its dramatic contrasts, is always a pleasant surprise to the tourists and a source of pride to residents.
The EL DORADO HOTEL means Place of Gold. It is easy reachable from the N4. The first building when entering from Vryburg, in secure surroundings. It is the ideal place for businessmen and weary traveler and businessman alike.
It opened its doors in November 1976, with 20 double rooms and the public areas. As demand grew, 3 more wings were added over the years ending with 76 rooms.
After years with the same owners, we bought the Hotel in August 2007, with a whole new plan for the Hotel, but decided to continue until December 2007. Luckily, we enjoyed it so much that we decided to go for it to the full extent. We made a lot of changes, renovated the kitchen, changed the dining room, add an A la Carte Restaurant, changed the bar, and provided 3 new conference rooms and that is only the beginning…
