Northern Cape - Diamond Fields

The Diamond Fields Travel Directory

General Information

The Diamond Fields region is found in the north eastern corner of the Northern Cape Province in South Africa.  During the world's greatest diamond rush, hordes of prospectors converged on this region, scouring the river banks and sifting soil in a frantic quest for wealth.  At times, there were as many as 30 000 diggers labouring all day and far into the night. Although the name Kimberley evokes images of glamour and romance, the diamond heyday was an era of blood, sweat and tears, high stakes and ruthless power struggles.

Kimberley developed around the huge hole in the ground, formerly a small hill known as Colesberg Koppie, where diamonds were discovered early in 1871.   Kimberley is the main town in the region, famous for its rich association with diamonds and is a great stopover on the alternative Johannesburg to Cape Town route.

The major attraction is the Big Hole, which was once a flat-topped hill and is the largest hand-dug excavation in the world. The area is surrounded by original old buildings and the Kimberley Mine Museum, which gives visitors insight into the lives of those that lived in the time of the diamond rush.

Towns of the Diamond Fields region include:  Barkley WestHartswaterJan KempdorpKimberley, Warrenton and Windsorton.
