Cape Karoo Region

The Cape Karoo made up of more than 400,000 square kilometers is a semi-arid, fossil-rich, ancient stone-age region and one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. It is home to two popular villages - Matjiesfontein, alongside the N1, and Prince Albert, tucked snugly at the base of the Swartberg Mountains. Beaufort West is its capital and oldest town.
