Kimberley is a town in South Africa, and the capital of the Northern Cape. It is located at near the Orange River, and is serviced by the nearby Kimberley Airport. Kimberley is directly associated with the diamond trade. Diamonds brought Kimberley its wealth and today they bring Kimberley visitors who want to know more about these precious stones. Kimberley is an ideal place for this.


Many old buildings, museums and one of South Africa’s most important art galleries lend an historic ambiance to the modern city that thrust its way to prominence through the heat, dust, flies and fever of the diamond rush. A partial reconstruction of the original ‘rush town’ – or open-air museum – alongside the incredible Big Hole, the largest hand-dug excavation in the world, offers visitors insights in the history of the Diamond industry.
