A&A Adventures is based in the small village of Somerset East, in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The geographic region is called the Karoo, and spans more than 400 000 sq km (that's around 250 000 sq miles) over four provinces of South Africa.

The name Karoo is derived from a Khoi word, with varying translations, but the most popular is "Place of Thirst", which we feel best describes this arid semi-desert area. Somerset East, our base, is at the foot of the Boschberg mountain, so it is a green oasis amidst the harsh beauty of the Karoo.
