When last did you visit Kimberley? Rich in history. Home to the first electric street light in the Southern Hemisphere. Nicknamed the Diamond City. Rich in tales of fortunes found. Home to the biggest man-made hole in the world. Crisp clear skies. Beautifully preserved. I took a collection of pics.
