10 Of The Most Haunted Places In South Africa

Written by Mark Rausch

Africana Museum, Kimberley

Originally the Kimberley Public Library built in 1882, it’s now an old, decadent museum, lavish with spiral staircases and still intact with the catalog of more than 14,000 books it featured way back when. And, way back when, there was a librarian named Bertrand Dyer who liked to make a profit off of misrepresenting the prices on books. As the story goes, Dyer’s scam was uncovered and he drank some cyanide, taking more than three days to die and in the process, left his soul behind. If you ever need to find a book, just shout out the title. Apparently Dyer’s ghost will toss it off the shelf for you!
