Karoo – Land of Thirst

Justin Bonello on Karoo, Land of Thirst: My introduction to the Karoo started some 30 odd years ago when I was a child and my mom was working on two films set on a farm in the Tankwa Karoo. The memories I have from that place are care-free and happy. I remember it as a thriving farm with sheep, pigs, chickens and a full film crew running around while I explored this natural wonder with blissful freedom. I remember swimming in the river and playing with the farm owners’ children and it was just magical for me. Since that time, I’ve always been fascinated by the Karoo and love going there to escape the overstimulation of the city. As a farmer once told me, “This is the place where God comes to think.”
