How to get here

You can fly directly to Kimberley from all the major cities in South Africa. It’s about 500 kilometres or a five-hour drive from Johannesburg and serves as a perfect detour on the N12, just of the N1, that functions as an alternative route between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Best time to visit

The cooler months in spring (August, September) and autumn (March, April) are recommended.
Kimberley can get very hot in summer (December to March) and very cold in winter (May, June and July).

Getting around

Kimberley is the only South African city with an operational tram system, dating back to the time of the diamond rush.

Where to stay

Kimberley has a number of luxury hotels, but many of the B&Bs and guesthouses in the historic part of town, many of them in buildings dating back to the diamond days, come highly recommended.

    I am interested in a historical tour of the main points relevant to the Siege of Kimberley 1899/1900.

    Do you have a list of names and / or contact details for suitably qualified tour guides? Thank you.
