Kimberley travel guide

Kimberley in the Northern Cape is called The City that Sparkles thanks to its diamond mining history. There’s more to this city than a big hole and some shiny stones – although the allure of the world renowned diamonds that have been found here is undeniable.

Thank to The Kimberley Club for providing us with the following information on Kimberley's Highlights.

Kimberley Attractions

  • The Big Hole and the Lady 616: One of the largest man-made holes in the world, the Kimberley Mine Big Hole is a site of national treasure and has applied for world heritage status.  View the world’s largest uncut diamond – the Lady 616.
  • Historical Trails: Learn about grissley diamond digging deaths, failed romances and mine fires on the Kimberley Ghost Trail, or enjoy a pint or three along the Historic Kimberley Pub Tour which harks back to the Diamond Digging days, when Kimberley was known for its variety and number of drinking holes.  For a more sobering experience take the Amandla Trail (Also know as Freedom or Struggle Trail) to view historic sites connected with the various Black cultures and their history in the Diamond City. Also of interest: The Archeological Route that stretches way back into the past.
  • Arts and Crafts: Visit the William Humphrey’s Art Gallery which has been going since the 1950’s and boasts one of the finest collections of modern and old masterpieces from Europe and South Africa. For craft lovers, the Wildebeestkuil and Nooitgedacht (Barkly West) Craft Centre is a good spot, and while you’re there look out for the hundreds of San (Bushmen) rock art depictions in Barkly West dating back from 200 to 2000 years.
  • Nature and Conservation: Marvel at the site of thousands of Flamingoes - one of the largest gatherings of both Greater and Lesser flamingos in Africa, these magnificent birds have recently started to breed on man-made islands in the natural pan know as Kamfersdam.
