The arid Karoo bursts into life with the first rains of the season as the grasses join the hardy succulents to give grazing pastures for the area's cattle and sheep farms. The landscape is dotted with windmills showing the many underground streams.

With wide open spaces between them, Karoo towns are welcoming and inviting with distinct Karoo architecture and hospitality. Hike around the flat-topped koppies or view game at one of the many nature reserves and game farms in the area.
