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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at William Humphreys Art Gallery and Duggan Cronin Gallery. Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre and McGregor Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Spend the 4th (Wed) exploring nature at Mokala National Park. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Kimberley Mine Museum, identify plant and animal life at Felidae Centre, admire the striking features of Kimberley Town Hall, and try your luck at Flamingo Casino.
