I find this image sad and beautiful, as it symbolises the impact of centuries of
hunting and farming on the biodiversity of the Karoo. From the remains of
armadillos, elephants, zebras, crocodiles and pythons that are on display, it's
clear that the owner is extremely proud of his “trophies”.' – Richard Dobson The
periodic migrations of millions of springbok, wildebeest and eland across the
Karoo in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are the stuff of legend, with one

Under laboratory conditions, the range of temperatures over which a species can

Karoo lamb. Don't be fooled by the neatly packaged stuff you see in the

about Dirk Ligter, but I really don't know much, or how do you say, took much
notice. But once there was an event, where you come out of Skilderykloof, on the
Calvinia road, there it [took place]. And Dirk Ligter was in that area. And the
police or the law were looking for him. Then they found him. And it was in the
evening, it seems, that they found him. And in those days the police still rode
onhorses. And they ...
