Karoo Stories.jpg

In the Karoo Heartland, there is a story along every dirt road, in every small-town pub, and around every dinner table. Stories are told, embellished and retold on stoeps throughout our small towns and farmlands. And, now, we’d love to hear your stories from the Karoo Heartland: adventures, encounters and magical moments.

Join us in celebrating our unique stories and you could win another holiday in the Eastern Cape Karoo! Did you catch a magnificent trout in Somerset East, encounter the wandering lion, Sylvester, or have a moment of wonder at the Valley of Desolation? We would love to hear why the Karoo is in your heart.
