Chris Marais, co-founder of www.karoospace.co.za , is a seasoned travel writer-photographer who has spent more than 30 years wandering the world. He believes the Karoo Heartland offers the finest road-trip route in South Africa.
“Road-trippers, in vehicles and on bikes, love the Karoo Heartland for its quaint towns, good accommodations, farm stays and general friendliness. But what they really like about travelling between the dozen-odd towns of the Karoo Heartland are the wide open spaces and that feeling of freedom that comes with drifting through such clear, scenic landscapes.”
Chris and his wife Julienne publish print- and e-books on the Karoo, which are used as traveller’s companions for armchair travellers and real-time adventurers. See the links below or www.karoospace.co.za for details.
