Karoo

If you drive over the next range of mountains from the Klein Karoo, perhaps take the hair-raising Swartberg Pass from Oudtshoorn over and into Prince Albert, a charming frontier town looking north across forbidding desert. This is where it really begins and apart from the odd dusty dorp to break the horizon, the Great Karoo reaches unbroken right up to Gauteng and bolts onto the Kalahari-Gemsbok way over to the west. It is a gigantic region with vast open vistas, gigantic skies, dramatic koppies and night skies, home to many desert-loving creatures and plants. I think you really need to experience the Karoo to get a real sense of South Africa.
