Karoo Info Travel Directory

General Information

The Karoo Info Travel Directory will guide you through this semi-desert region with two main sub-regions - the Great Karoo in the north and the Little Karoo in the south. The name Karoo originated from the original Khoi word, Karus, meaning dry, barren, thirsty land.

The Karoo is best defined by its vegetation which consists of assorted succulents and low scrub bushes spaced from one foot to several feet apart.  The Karoo Info Travel Directory offers information on the vast, arid plains and mountain ranges that make up most of this beautiful region.  The Karoo dotted with historic, hospitable towns, wildlife, fossils, wine routes and a wide variety of eco and adventure activities. This hot, dry, barren landscape covers much of Southern Africa. Here the main economic activity is wool and meat from the hardy Karoo sheep. Read More
