I Love Kimberley Because …

Updated Saturday, 22 December 2018

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.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO relax at the river at Broadwater.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO go on the underground tour and see the films at the Big Hole.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS any time of the year, BECAUSE there is always something to do, no matter what the season.
