Area Information:

The Karoo, from a Khoikhoi word, possibly garo "desert" is a semi-desert natural region of South Africa. There is no exact definition of what constitutes the Karoo, and therefore its extent is also not precisely defined. The Karoo is partly defined by its topography, geology and climate — above all, its low rainfall, arid air, cloudless skies, and extremes of heat and cold. The Karoo also hosted a well-preserved ecosystem hundreds of million years ago which is now represented by many fossils.

Property Facilities:

Outdoor braai areas stocked with firewood & blitz – all replenished daily, house has own private braai
Cottages & house have their own plunge pools
Unlimited WiFi at no cost. Excellent Cell phone reception
DSTV Hospitality package including all Sports Channels
Air-conditioners with heating & cooling in all 4 cottages
Wall Heaters in all 4 cottage bathrooms
Complimentary herbs & vegetables from our organic tunnel, season dependent, please check first
We will gladly do grocery or refreshment shopping for ease of convenience upon arrival


The Great Karoo straddles the 30° S parallel on the west of the continent, in a similar position to other semi-desert areas on earth, north and south of the equator. It is furthermore in the rainfall shadow of the Cape Fold Mountains along the western coastline. The western "Lower Karoo" (the Tankwa Karoo and Moordenaarskaroo) contain remnants of the Cape Fold Mountains (e.g. the Witteberg and Anysberg Mountains) which give it a moderate hilly appearance; but further east the Lower Karoo becomes a monotonously flat plain. The "Upper Karoo" has been intruded by dolerite sills (see below), creating multiple flat topped hills, or "Karoo Koppies", which are iconic of the Great Karoo.

The vegetation of the Upper and Lower Karoo is similar, so that few people make a distinction between the two.

The charm and character of this town impressed me. The Karoo gardens are beautiful and there are interesting local products for sale. I recommend the book shop in Marlene's home.
