Welcome to Karoo Keepsakes II. You are about to enter the Heartland of South Africa.

In Part II of the best-selling Karoo Keepsakes series, you will meet a Zen master on a Colesberg farm, the Riel Dance Queen of Namaqualand, a true shaman who heals with herbs and knows the inner thoughts of donkeys, a man who lives with 120 000 books, the Water King of the Karoo and a whole bunch of musicians whose first preference is to perform somewhere in the dry country.

Once you’re plugged in to the Karoo Keepsakes series, you will be a Karoo insider. The books will be your travel companions on journeys to the heart of South Africa.

    The people of the Karoo are the salt of the earth and are beautifully portrayed and documented for us by the authors Chris Marais and Julienne du Toit.
    The photography is wonderfully evocative of that part of the world. I shall treasure my books and love to delve into them to remind me that next time we are able to travel to South Africa we need to spend more time in the Karoo, and urge you to do the same.
