“Karoo Sunrise” ~ South Africa’s national bird; the Blue Crane, walks slowly across an open Karoo landscape as the sun rises over the Mountain Zebra National Park near Cradock, South Africa.

Having had the privilege of watching my father transform a lifeless sheep farm near Cradock into a spectacular game reserve with large herds of Cape Eland and precious family groups of Mountain Zebras, the Karoo will always be a special place to me. I often say to people that to experience the magic of the Karoo you have to go there! The serenity, the aromas, the unique biodiversity and the harsh yet beautiful landscapes are hard to explain through words and images alone. Yet, if I have one image that captures a little of the Karoo’s magic it is this one. It captures the stillness, the golden grasslands, the promise of distant hilltops and one of the iconic birds; the Blue Crane, that calls the Karoo home.
