Aberdeen at a glance
Sleepy hollow, the quant town of Aberdeen situated on the N9 between Graaff Reinet and the Garden Route in the Great Karoo. This Karoo town is known as the heart of the Mohair country and considered as the greatest producer of mohair in the country. Apart from many traditional Karoo houses there is also a variety of various architectural styles. Many folk have chosen to retire to the peace and tranquillity of the Karoo. Here in Aberdeen the air is pure and the stresses of city life are left behind. The district is renowned for its wool and mohair, being the largest mohair producing area in the country. Karoo lamb is famous throughout South Africa for the distinctive taste of the meat, attributed to the unique Karoo grazing. Most of the farms have been in the same family for many generations, and a variety of sheep, goats, ostriches and cattle somehow manage to thrive in this arid semi-desert. Property prices in Aberdeen are very reasonable, and this has enabled many newer residents to be able to repair and restore their homes to their former glory. Aberdeen offers history for the mind and peace and tranquillity for the soul. Aberdeen is a treasure trove of architectural delights, with Victorian ostrich baron palaces rubbing shoulders with sturdy Karoo houses and more modern 20th century homes.

With the healthy climate and the slow pace of life, the town presents a relaxing panacea for the stresses and strains of modern life.
