More info about Karoo

The Karoo, meaning place of thirst in the Nama language, aptly describes this vast inland region of South Africa. It’s a land of contrasts, where barren fields are instantly transformed into carpets of colourful flowers after rains and eternal springs are found near to lakes that remain dry for years.  

The Karoo is geologically divided into the Great and Little Karoo, the Swartberg Mountain range splitting the two regions. The Little Karoo lies in a valley and is more fertile and mountainous than the Great Karoo. Combined, this arid area is roughly 500000km² in size.

Dig a little deeper and you will find a living desert filled with interesting creatures and nocturnal animals, diverse succulents, copper-infused rocks, old farmsteads and the occasional reclusive artist selling creative gems from home. Stare in awe at the big blue skies in the day and celestial showcase by night.

In the Karoo, visitors are able to appreciate the wide open spaces and the silence, broken only by the sound of a sheep bell. Being in a vast land where human contact is irregular, the warm and friendly locals welcome visitors and make every effort to ensure their return.

Travel a dirt road here and you will greeted by every passing vehicle driver, cyclist and pedestrian.

 

Top 8 reasons to visit the Karoo

1. The Little Karoo is mostly ostrich and fruit country, visit the ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn to learn more about this large bird, travel to Barrydale to sample the region’s wines and deciduous fruits, and take a break at the hot springs resort in Calitzdorp.

2. From Oudtshoorn, head over the Swartberg Pass – into the Great Karoo – to reach the pretty town of Prince Albert with its 19 national monuments and tasty olives. Further on is Beaufort West, a well-known fossil bearing area with good hiking and 4x4 trails. ... Show more
