Info Kimberley - schools, housing, ect.
« on: June 03, 2016, 12:07:22 pm »
Is there perhaps any dogs living in Kimberley or surrounding area?

I got a job offering close to Kimberley and if I take it, I have to move the family to I suppose Kimberley, don't know the area if there is perhaps other surrounding areas that is nice? How is the schools there? got 2 daughters, that is still small (2 & 8), is there any private schools there? (Curro or something similar) Housing, is there nice houses to rent until I have settled and decided where to stay and how is the buyers marked on houses, expensive?

It is a very big decision for us, because myself and the wife have fairly good jobs and we are living in my home town in the west Coast.

Last but not least how is the biking down there any social enduro rides that the guys is hosting down there.

Any input will be appreciated.

I lived in that area, but many years ago and in army camps!
Very nice area!
I am just bumping this up for you in the hope that a Kimberley dog will wake up out of his lekker lazy sun filled rest and give you some up to date info!

I used to smouse that area in the early '70's good people and good schools, is/was a fun place. We often went there for a weekend from Bloemfontein.
Bum in the saddle, always.
