Hi, I’m Riana Engelbrecht from Broadwater between Kimberley and Douglas in the Northern Cape.

KIMBERLEY IS BEST KNOWN FOR the Big Hole, the largest hand-dug excavation in the world.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN in the old Town at the Big Hole, to look like a film star from the diamond era.

THE BEST flamingo PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT Kamfersdam, just outside Kimberley on the Johannesburg Road.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS in the Old Town at the Big Hole.

Broadwater

Broadwater

Broadwater

Endless water views, the call of the fish eagle, breathtaking sunsets and champagne under a starry sky. Broadwater is a private river escape that nestles on the banks of the Vaal River near Kimberley and Douglas. In this pristine aquatic environment you find space for the solitary and activity for the energetic. Enjoy the river and relax in style amongst a pristine aquatic environment. Listen in awe to the magical call of the fish eagle or watch just metres away from you, the kingfisher swoop down to the river to catch its meal
