Let's hit the road!

It’s time to join Chris Marais and Julienne du Toit, authors of the bestselling Karoo Keepsakes series, for a classic holiday adventure via the pages of their Traveller’s Companion book, Road Tripper Eastern Cape Karoo.

  • Go pub-crawling, padstal-shopping and stoep-sitting;
  • Watch champion sheep shearers, dig in at a food festival and sip sherry in a Victorian-era hotel;
  • Hunt for fossils, fish for monster trout and wake up on a Karoo farm;
  • Ride mountain bikes on dusty trails, motorcycles on back roads and walk the veld in search of artefacts;
  • Celebrate life with some of the friendliest and most interesting people who call the Karoo home.

It’s all about Disconnection, Discovery & Delight.
