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 having been there since 1888.
