Welcome to Kimberley Info

 

A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Kimberley, South Africa

 

Kimberley is the capital city in the Northern Cape and is known as the "Diamond City".  It is basically in the centre of the country with two major National roads leading to it.  The N12 (Cape Town via the N1 to the south and Pretoria/Johannesburg to the north) and the N8 going east to west.

Founded in 1871 when diamonds were discovered on a nearby farm named Vooruitzicht (owned by the De Beers brothers).  Kimberley was also known as “New Rush” before it was renamed to Kimberley (after Lord Kimberley, then British Secretary of State for the Colonies).  The Headquarters of the De Beers Consolidated Mines are still in Kimberley since 1888.

Some of the things to do and see in Kimberley are as follows:

  • Kimberley Mine Museum and Big Hole - Consisting of original and carefully reconstructed buildings
  • Africana Library
  • Steam Locomotives
  • A trip on the tram - travel to the Kimberley Mine Museum in grand old style
  • Ernest Oppenheimer Memorial Gardens and Diggers Fountain - The Gardens
  • The Peace and Justice Memorial on the Greenpoint Community Square
