Vaalbos National Park

The Vaalbos National Park is an extraordinary area along the Vaal River where wildlife such as black rhino, white rhino, buffalo, eland, red hartebeest and tsessebe are to be seen in the former heart of the alluvial diamond diggings near Kimberley.

Vaalbos’ name originates, incredibly, from the vaalbos (camphor bush), a prominent plant species in the park. The historic mining village, Sydney-on-Vaal, which contains many original Victorian buildings, is adjacent to the park.
