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. When using our South Africa trip planning tool, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
