The slightly raffish Karroo Theatrical Hotel overlooks the dusty town of Steytlerville in the Eastern Cape. Its shape is that of an Art Deco flat cake and inside, well, if you don't like outrageously camp cabaret acts on Saturday nights, you're advised to find somewhere more genteel to stay over.
But for many travellers, it's just the kind of eccentric humour that hits the spot out here in the Karoo heartland, where the harsh conditions often make living a very serious matter.
Guests are treated to a delectable three course, candle lit dinner together with a sleek and glitzy show.
“The Steytlerville Follies” is presented by Freddy Ferrari and stars the legendary Karoovian diva, Dame Leyla Lamborghini.
