In South Africa it stands alone, globally it is an envied rarity The Karoo, the Hottentot word for "Dry Thirstland", is considered a wonder of the scientific world. It is an ancient, fossil-rich land with the largest variety of succulents found anywhere on earth. There are over 9000 species of plants in the Great Karoo, one district alone being home to more species than the whole of Great Britain

Game animals, to whom these plains and mountains are home make the Great Karoo an outpost of nature where man's intrusion is still but a light touch. Here many species of game are found: Hyrax, Mountain Zebra, Springbuck, Wild Ostrich, Guinea fowl, Egyptian Geese and Lynx. Bird life is abundant.
