KAROO COTTAGES
SELF CATERING ACCOMMODATION

"The Karoo makes one realise many so-called important things are really insignificant, so many insignificant things are important.” So, when the city’s starless nights and cordial, cramped offices become too much, I try to recall the dusty solitude of the Karoo to gain some perspective.

– Story of an African Farm, Olive Schreiner
