The Diamond Museum
Kimberley is the diamond capitol of the world and offers special deals to its visitors. The surrounding area is steeped in history and battle sites, many of which are right in the hunting areas.
The name Kimberley has been associated with the magic of diamonds since these mysterious, shiny “pebbles,” first appeared in the Northern Cape region of South Africa in the mid-19th century.
The Eureka, the first diamond found in South Africa, was discovered less than 30 miles away and within a few years, the mining town of Kimberley had become the centre of Africa’s first diamond “rush”. Tour the big hole and surrounding museums to get a feel of how it all began.
Take the opportunity to buy some diamonds from the place it all began and arrive home with with a sparkling reminder of your African safari.
