Mother City

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Step out of the city life by going to Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Cape Point. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, visit Abseil Africa, take in the waterfront at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Two Oceans Aquarium.

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.
Get in touch with nature at Mokala National Park and Felidae Centre. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of The Big Hole, take in the history at Magersfontein Battlefield, and examine the collection at Kimberley Mine Museum.

To find reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Kimberley driving holiday tool.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Cape Town to Kimberley. When traveling from Cape Town in December, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Kimberley: temperatures range from 41°C by day to 19°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
