The Kimberley Climate

 

Map of South Africa highlighting Kimberley

 

Kimberley is situated very close to the centre of South Africa at 28°44'S 24°46'E - right at the eastern edge of the Northern Cape Province, of which it is the capital. The Northern Cape is the largest and the most sparsely populated of the 9 South African Provinces.

Kimberley lies at an elevation of approximately 1230m [4040 ft] above sea level.

The climate around Kimberley is essentially a continental one - the weather provides hot wet summers (December to February) and mild dry winters (June to August). The infrequent summer rains tend to take the form of occasional severe thunderstorms rather than prolonged soft showers. It is not unusual for winter night-time temperatures to drop below freezing.
