Climate

The Klein Karoo is certainly an area with an extreme climate. The summers are long and hot with temperatures sometimes reaching above 40°C. The winters, though short, can get extremely cold with snow often appearing on the Swartberg after a cold front has passed over. On 26 December 2003 - midsummer - there was snow on the mountains!

Less than 260mm of rain falls the whole year round peaking in spring and autumn while in the summer it can be delivered in the form of dramatic thundershowers.
