Unveiling Kimberley with Rhinocarhire: A Gem of a Journey

In the heart of South Africa's Northern Cape, Kimberley stands as a testament to the diamond rush that painted a pivotal chapter in the nation's history. With its intriguing past and natural beauty, Kimberley is an adventurer's haven. Allow Rhinocarhire to be your compass as you delve into this sparkling city.

Driving in Kimberley: Insights and Tips

  • Driving Orientation: South Africa, including Kimberley, observes left-hand driving. For international travelers, especially from countries with right-hand driving, it's vital to stay attentive.

  • Road Quality: The primary roads in Kimberley are in good condition, but once you venture outside the city, be prepared for some uneven terrains. Drive cautiously.

  • Parking: Within the city, you'll find several public parking spots. However, it's always a good idea to keep an eye out for "No Parking" signs.

Choosing the Perfect Vehicle for Kimberley

  • City Explorations: For city tours, a compact or standard sedan from Rhinocarhire's selection would be apt.

  • Off-road Adventures: For those wanting to explore the outskirts and natural landscapes, an SUV would be an ideal choice.

Must-visit Spots and Routes in Kimberley

  • The Big Hole: A remnant of the diamond rush, this vast hand-dug excavation is a marvel to witness. The adjoining Kimberley Mine Museum provides a deep dive into the city's past.

  • Magersfontein Battlefield: Located just south of Kimberley, this site commemorates a significant battle during the Second Anglo-Boer War.

  • Ghost Tours & Historical Walks: Drive around Kimberley's central district, and embark on guided tours that paint vivid pictures of the city's bygone eras.

Key Recommendations for First-timers in Kimberley

  • Stay Hydrated: Kimberley can get hot, especially during the summer. Always keep a bottle of water in your car.

  • Diamond Purchases: Kimberley offers authentic diamond souvenirs. However, always buy from reputable dealers and ensure you receive certification for your purchase.
