City that Sparkles
As the heart of the Northern Cape's "Diamond Fields"--the region where the glittering jewels were discovered in the 1870s--Kimberley has evolved from a simple mining encampment to a thriving city rich in history and heritage. Diamond mines dot the town landscape, many of them hand-dug like the landmark "Big Hole." Attractions in Kimberley are plentiful, from quaint saloons and mining settlements reminiscent of the town's glory days, to a plethora of history museums and art galleries. Relive the diamond rush with a mine tour, browse the various jewelry shops, or delve into the town's turbulent history during the Anglo-Boer war and apartheid struggle. Add Kimberley and other destinations in South Africa to your travel plans using our South Africa trip itinerary maker.
