The head office of the municipality is situated in the town of Barkly West that is approximately 35 km north-west of the city of Kimberley on the northern bank of the Vaal River. Barkly West is situated on the Kimberley-Postmasburg growth corridor. The municipal area covers approximately 7 315 km² and borders with the Magareng Municipality in the north-east and Sol Plaatje in the south-east.

Barkly West is situated on the Vaal River. Formerly known as Klipdrift (Dutch: 'stony ford'), the town began as a camp for diamond diggers in 1869. It was named Barkly West in 1870, after Governor Sir Henry Barkly. During the Second Anglo-Boer War it was occupied for four months by Boer forces and during this time was temporarily renamed Nieu-Boshof. (GPS coordinates: 28.5072 S, 24.5014 E).

Delportshoop is situated at the junction of the Harts and Vaal rivers. It developed from a diamond-diggers' camp and is said to have given the name after the first person to find diamonds there. (GPS coordinates: 28.3818 S, 24.2922 E).

Windsorton was established in 1869 as a diamond-diggers' camp, it was first known as Hebron, but renamed after P E Windsor, who had a great role in its further development. The area is also known as Chaib, which is from the Khoikhoi language for 'place of the kudu'. (GPS coordinates: 28.3084 S, 24.6831 E).
