Chris Marais

South African Country Life - - Editor’s Note -

The lit­tle North­ern Cape Ka­roo town of Fraserburg punches well above its weight, some­thing borne out by a so­cial-me­dia poll on South Africa’s favourite Ka­roo towns, which tells us that Ka­roo road­trip­pers seem to favour this out-of-the-way spot – it came fifth af­ter favourites like Prince Al­bert and Graaff-Reinet. That’s why reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor Chris Marais set off to visit it. He found a town with sur­pris­ing va­ri­ety, a great lo­cal guide, and some 250-mil­lion-yearold crea­ture foot­steps. He also found a Gift of the Givers con­voy bring­ing re­lief to many of the drought-stricken and very grate­ful lo­cal farm­ers. Read Tales of the Golden Bakkie on page 56.
