Karoo Information Travel Directory

General Information

Welcome to our Karoo Information Directory.  Here you will find information on accommodation, activities, restaurants, events and articles - all relating to the Karoo.

The Karoo is huge, and although divided into different microclimates across its vastness, it is mainly divided into two sub-regions : the Great (Groot) Karoo in the north and the Little (Klein) Karoo in the south.  The name Karoo originated from the original Khoi word, Karus, meaning dry, barren, thirsty land.

Mostly the Karoo is defined by its assortment of succulent vegetation and low scrub bushes, coupled by its extreme temperatures of heat in summer and cold in winter.  The Karoo is also known for its hospitable towns, fossils, wine routes and activities.

Historically the Karoo has been around for many years with San Art visible on hikes, and fossil collections in museums.  If there is one thing that is guaranteed in the Karoo it would be the clear starry nights - the sky is magnificent as it lights up its galaxy.

The most obvious animal found to roam the Karoo is the Ostrich – a horizon dotted with black and white feathers ... these big flightless birds are the Karoo’s most famous animal. Read More
