A village just south of Grootmis, at the mouth of the Buffels River, 72 km south-east of Port Nolloth and 105 km west of Springbok. Known for its diamond-mining operations. Founded after 1927. The name is Afrikaans and means 'small sea', referring to a lagoon at the mouth of the Buffets River.
The Buffels River "flows" through Kleinsee, but most of the time it is just a dry river bed and this river only flows approximately every ten years.
Its main school is Kleinsee Primary School.
Its population size generally consisted of around 2,000 residents, but was considerably reduced by the down-scaling of mining activities in 2009.
