THE MAGIC PLACE

When did you last wake up on a Karoo farm, taste the air and feel the peace? When did you last take a life-changing Karoo road trip, an odyssey of back roads and friendly people?

Here at Karoo Space you will discover old stories from an ancient land; visit Victorian-era villages that time passed by; trade with a million people in 101 towns; learn why the Karoo must be protected; celebrate with food and festivals.

COME WITH US. WE KNOW THE WAY.
