Why do Tourists visit the Little Karoo
Author: Caroline Gelderblom
There has been a very rapid expansion in the number of people involved in the tourism industry over the last 5 years in the Little Karoo. There is consequently an increasing emphasis on the potential of tourism to support sustainable development in the region. There is however very little information on the region’s emerging tourism market. Most provincial and national studies tend to group the Little Karoo with the Garden Route which has a very different economic and environmental character.
