Car Hire Kimberley

Kimberley Airport Guide

As Kimberley Airport is primarily a business airport it has a reasonable amount of facilities for such a small airport. You can enjoy a light meal whilst waiting for business associates or before flying to Johannesburg or Cape Town and you can also shop for gifts there including jewellery made with the famous Kimberley diamonds. Car hire is available and can be collected from the desks in the arrivals hall. As befits a business airport, transit through is efficient and you’ll hardly notice your stay there.


Kimberley Airport Directions

Turn left onto Oliver Road once you leave the airport complex. This road crosses the Kimberley ring road and heads into the southeast of the city. You’ll reach most parts of the city in under thirty minutes.


Kimberley Airport Parking

Kimberley has ample parking if you are looking to leave a car there or if you’re being collected by friends or family. Nearly 300 spaces are more than adequate for the number of flights that pass through Kimberley and there are easy access spaces for the less mobile.


Kimberley Airport Flight Information

Kimberley Airport carries only domestic flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg but its distance from any international airport means that flying into Cape Town or Jo’burg and connecting there for Kimberley really is the only option.

Kimberley Info

Kimberley is a business city with its wealth based on the De Beers diamond mining there but increasingly it’s becoming important as a tourist destination for its role in the development of South Africa.

If you decide to stay there, visit Big Hole and the adjacent Open Mine Museum before heading out to Kamfers Dam to watch the flamingos on Flamingo Island. See the Diggers Memorial and the memorial to the Honoured Dead, those that died defending Kimberley in the Boer War.
