Kimberely is the capital of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa and is well known for the role it played in the 19th century diamond rush. This town was established in 1871, following the discovery of diamonds on a farm nearby, owned by the De Beers brothers. This town is affectionately named the Diamond City and the Big Hole is its main attraction. The site is located in the western region of the city and can be reached via tram, or by foot. The Big Hole is a massive diamond mine that was dug out by hand. Today it descends 702 feet deep and can be viewed inside the Kimberely Mine Museum. You’ll also see a smoke shop, a mineshaft and vault of real diamonds here. Old architectural structures surrounding the Big Hole bring the spirit of this period to life. The Belgravia Historic Walk is another must do while in town. This historic suburb is made up of 33 prominent sites, all reflecting the opulent lifestyles the diamond mining brought. Points of interest, in the suburb, include The McGregar Museum, the Halfway House Inn and the Drill Hall. You can learn all about the battles between the Boers, the English settlers, and the people indigenous to the lands, on the Magersfield Battlefield Tour. The tour includes audio visual accounts of the war and an exciting walk up the hills to the trenches.
