Caro’s Karoo Accommodation offers traditional Karoo homestay accommodation in a century-old cottage in the sleepy village of Victoria West.
This is semi-arid, sheep-farming country, where wide horizons stretch fa-a-a-a-a-r into the distance. Situated in the south-eastern region of South Africa’s Northern Cape Province, Caro’s Karoo is the perfect stopping-off destination—whether you’re driving long-distance, or simply looking for a few days R&R.
Caro’s Karoo offers traditional Karoo homestay accommodation in two-bed bedrooms, with a comfortable, communal TV lounge, which is equipped with a tea and coffee station, a bar fridge, and a single sleeper couch.

Victoria West Tours:
Join my friend, qualified guide Ricardo Pieterse, on one of his walking tours of Victoria West, and to hear the stories of many of our local attractions. Suitable for people with disabilities. Animal-friendly.
Victoria West Museum:
The displays in the two halls of the Victoria West Museum cover the paleontology and natural history of the Karoo, and the cultural and sporting history of the town.
In pride of place in the fish fossil collection in the B.J. Kempen Hall is the 250-million-year-old Atherstonia Seeley, which lived in this area at a time when the Karoo was wet and marshy. This is the oldest-known and best-preserved specimen of the species—which had a shell of scales, rather than a backbone.
