Danielskuil lies at the foot of the Kuruman Hills, 90km south of Kuruman and forms the eastern border of the Green Kalahari region. According to tradition, the town got its name from the fact that the Griqua leader Adam Kok I used a 6 metre deep snake infested sinkhole in the dolomite limestone as a prison. This story reminded early white settlers of the Biblical story of Daniel in the lion's den, prompting them to rename the town from the 1816 name of "Fraaifontein" to the current name in use since 1820.

The town is sustained by mining activity and cattle farming. The main minerals produced are lime at Lime Acres, diamonds at the Finsch Diamond Mine south of Lime Acres and marble.

The Main Attractions are:
* Boesmansgat
Boesmansgat is a unique natural sinkhole that is renowned as the second deepest and largest sinkhole in the world. It is found on the farm "Mount Carmel".
* The British Fort
The British Fort was built during the Anglo-Boer War on a hillock overlooking the town.
* Gaol
