The tram system, set up by the Victoria Tramways Company, first started transporting people to the ever-expanding Big Hole in 1887 and today you can take a 20-minute ride on the vintage orange tram around the Big Hole for around R20, starting at the Kimberley Mine Museum.
The tram heads from the museum past historical features such as the original mining shaft and the authentic West End bar, round the Big Hole to the viewing deck where visitors have a visceral view into it, and also passes some of Kimberley’s most historic sites such as the Head Office of the De Beers Consolidated Mines Ltd and the original Big Hole mine dumps.
