As the capital city of the province, Kimberley has long been associated with mining. One of the biggest landmarks in this diamond-mining town is the Big Hole - a man-made hole that is a kilometre deep and about 17 hectares wide. It is here that miners worked hard to reach the precious stones that have led to Kimberley’s reputation as a major diamond hotspot. The Kimberley Mine Museum was created to offer insight into the hole and the city’s history in diamond mining.
Other attractions in the area may not be quite as staggering as this giant hole, but are still well worth checking out. These include a fascinating ghost trail through the city, Benfontein Nature Reserve, Diggers Memorial, Ernest Oppenheimer Gardens, Kimberley Golf Course, McGregor Museum, Town Hall, Belgravia Historic Walk, William Humphreys Art Gallery and the nearby Northern Cape Wine Route.
The Vaal River meanwhile has its own share of highlights. Restaurants, boat cruises, fishing and many other pursuits can be enjoyed on this river, while bird watching is also excellent in this part of the area. There are many good wining and dining options within the city itself too, ensuring loads to keep you entertained after dark as well as during the day.
