The Karoo Land of thirst

The Karoo is an intense semi desert landscape which covers more than 400,000 square kilometers in south western South Africa.

This great video, The Karoo – Land of Thirst from Justin Bonello’s cooking show Cooked in Africa, has some fantastic scenes of the landscape and locals.

This second video is a bit more of a follow up to the promo. Justin talks to some long time Karoo farmers about living in this harsh place, what the landscape means to them and how they do it.

A visit to the Karoo : A spectacular drive in and of itself, their are some great places to stop and visit and discover more about this unique landscape. Make sure you include the Karoo and the very least a stop in Outdshoorn on your garden route itinerary leaving Cape Town or coming into Cape Town.
