The word “Karoo” comes from the Koisan, otherwise known as the Bushmen. The Bushmen is the tribes of people who have lived there almost since right after the great flood. The Karoo is almost as dry as a desert but it has Karoo plants. The Karoo has a great amount of wild life and animals of every sort and kind can be found there. A lot of times when we think about the Karoo we think about dry forsaken empty landscape with no life and no people but that is far from the truth.
There are two parts of the Karoo. The Great Karoo and the Little Karoo.
