Aberdeen Karoo

Situated in the Camdeboo Plains against the backdrop of the Camdeboo Mountains on the N9 between Graaff Reinet, Willowmore and the Garden Route, Aberdeen offers history for the mind and peace for the soul. 

The district is renowned for its wool and mohair, being the largest mohair producing area in South Africa. The town has an extremely healthy climate, a restful and rural atmosphere, unpolluted air and unequalled starry night skies. 

Strolling through this historic town one is able to discover its rich heritage. Today Aberdeen is a town attracting many newcomers, some of them refugees from the big cities! With the healthy climate and the slow pace of life, the town presents a relaxing panacea for the stresses and strains of modern life. 

Numerous artists have settled here including Marguerite Beneke, whose kiln-fused glass have found a home throughout the world. Various other crafters have workshops that may be viewed by appointment.
