Kimberley Verblyf

Kimberley is a small city in the east of the Northern Cape Province. It also happens to be the capital of this province. Despite its small size, Kimberley is historically significant and staying in one of the city's bed and breakfasts can make for an interesting few days.

The city is surrounded by flat plains which are occasionally interrupted by small hills (or "koppies", as they're known in South Africa). It is an arid region with low rainfall, very hot summers (December to March) and mild winters.

Historically speaking, Kimberley lies at the heart of the South African diamond industry. The city was initially developed because of alluvial diamond deposits found in the area. Later numerous mines were opened and the landscape was largely blighted. Today, one of Kimberley's greatest tourist attractions is what's known as The Big Hole - an old diamond mine which has since filled partially with water, leaving an interesting water-filled crater to behold. The Big Hole viewing deck is accessed via the Big Hole Museum, a fascinating place representing the townscape of Kimberley during the diamond rush period.

If you spend a few days in Kimberley, you should also be sure to take a look at the Pioneers of Aviation Museum. The museum premises were once the home of South Africa's first flying school, the same place where Africa's first female pilot earned her pilot's license. Another museum worth a visit is the Kimberley Transport Museum displaying old relics such as South Africa's first tram.

If museums don't get you ticking, Kimberley, like most regions of South Africa also offers one the opportunity to appreciate nature. Just north of Kimberley lies the Komfers Dam, a pan which is home to a breeding colony of lesser flamingos. The Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre has examples of rock art engravings (as opposed to the usual paintings) which are said to be the work of the San and their ancestors. A little further afield one can also visit the Mokala National Park among other reserves. Kimberley is small enough that the guest houses and hotels are close by to all of these attractions.

Kimberley is an understated city, but has much to offer the visitor.

It was my first time in Kimberley and I found it to be peaceful, friendly and no rush. The places of interest are accessible but roadsigns not informative enough

Kimberley was great and loved that we could stay out of the city in such a lovely place. Big Hole was amazing.
- Jo Goddard

Kimberley
My last visit to Kimberly was 1989. The "Big Hole" viewing has improved no end with the new Diamond Big Hole museum and the old street which is also lit at night giving a very authentic feel to that era of time. I suggest a two day stay will cover the prominent sights including the McGregor museum and the Magersfontein Battle fields.
