Karreekloof keeping traditions alive

A big part of traveling is turning your head and to smile a while.

Depending on where you are traveling to, traditions around the world may appear a little strange, but to others, they are part of their history and heritage. To observe strange customs, to admire people in traditional outfits, to gasp at breathtaking sights or to try to understand why people do what they do.

How is it that traditions were made so easy in the old days?  One specific memory when visiting people in the Karoo, they would greet you like as if they knew you your entire life and when you leave they would wave with a little handkerchief till the wheels of your motorcar touch the tar road.

As we look back today a lot of people and places still keep their traditions alive generation after generation. It’s what makes something old so unique full of character, and heartwarming. In some cultures, traditions are very important.

Here at Karreekloof, we want to keep traditions alive.

The once old rustic bell has been upgraded with a brand-new jacket. When visiting Karreekloof you will first sign in at our guestbook, after that you will ring the brand new “old” clock, pictures are most welcome.  The thundering sounds of the clock will move across the plains of the lodge sending the welcome signals to everyone.

Your first step at Karreekloof will always be part of our history and traditions. Looking forward making that first step with you!
