Sun sets over a road near Graaff Reinet in the Karoo
The sun sets over a road near Graaff Reinet in the Karoo October 11, 2013. Stretching across the heart of South Africa, the Karoo has stirred emotions for centuries, a stunning semi-desert wilderness fit mainly for artists, hunters and the toughest of farmers. It is now rousing less romantic passions. If energy companies and the ruling African National Congress (ANC) get their way, it will soon be home to scientists and geologists mapping out shale gas fields touted as game-changers for Africa's biggest economy, and working out whether fracking will work here. Some residents fear hydraulic fracturing will pollute scarce water supplies and destabilise agriculture, which has for three centuries been the mainstay of the local economy.

Distillers, points to a Blue Agave plant in Graaf Reinet, April 17,
2003. The cactus-like plant is used by Mexicans to make fiery tequila
liquor, and the South African company has begun making its own
cactus-juice spirit using a slightly different variety of the plant
that grows in the dry and inhospitable Karoo region of the country.
Bottles of the spirit, named "Agava", are flying of the shelf in South
Africa, while the firm is also exporting concentrate to North America,
