Welcome to Central Karoo


The Karoo covers almost one-third of South Africa’s total area and is demarcated in the south and west by the coastal mountain ranges, and to the east and north by the mighty Gariep (Orange) River. It’s often split into the Great Karoo (north) and the Little Karoo (south), but the Karoo doesn’t respect provincial boundaries and sprawls into three provinces.
