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.
On the 11th (Fri), examine the collection at Kimberley Mine Museum, take an in-depth tour of The Big Hole, and then take in the history at Magersfontein Battlefield. On the 12th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: see the interesting displays at McGregor Museum, see the interesting displays at Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre, and then stroll through Felidae Centre.

For photos, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Kimberley trip planner.

Johannesburg to Kimberley is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Johannesburg in August, expect little chillier with lows of 4°C in Kimberley. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Springbok.
