Central Karoo

The Central Karoo Travel Directory

General Information

The Central Karoo is one of the worlds most unique arid zones and this region forms one of the six regions of the Western Cape Province, South Africa.  It has a harsh, yet invigorating climate.

The Central Karoo is a semi-arid area with an extremely interesting history.  This area is many a Geologist's dream, with fossil-rich landscapes to be found all around.  The area is home to the largest selection of succulents on earth, while the largest San Rock art site in the Karoo can be visited at Nelspoort.

A legacy of the indigenous Khoi-San people is the wonderfully intriguing rock art that is found inside caves and caverns and on rock formations.

The Central Karoo has a magic that cannot be described, but has to be experienced. It is a place of quiet repose, of replenishment and of inner peace. It is a place that has inspired poets, artists, authors and photographers throughout the centuries.

Activities in the area include:

  • The Karoo National Park is home to the endangered black rhinoceros, quagga and riverine rabbit.
