True Living’s Line Up for the Schreiner Karoo Writer’s Festival


Cradock is in high spirits celebrating its 200th year anniversary along with 200 years of  Karoo inspired literature. True Living is all about ‘Le Good Life’ in the Karoo, and we’re opening our doors to welcome all guests and locals for the entire weekend from the 25th to the 27th of July.

You can expect real Karoo fare, like Lamb Chops, Bobotie, Venison Fillet and Freshly Baked Bread and ‘Roosterkoek’ every day, including Sunday. Don’t miss out on sharing and experiencing true Karoo hospitality and “true living” with us this weekend.
