A journey of rediscovery and finding the meaning of life, all over again, begins when SABC 2's new local drama launches next month.
Karavaan, set between Cape Town and Vredendal, in the Westen Cape, begins on 8 November at 19:30. The 'characteristically South African' 13-part series follows long-time friends Hennie, Renske, Gert and Marshall on a road trip.
During the road trip, the group of oldies face various obstacles that impact how they perceive life and their idea of growing old gracefully.
"Karavaan features Kurt Egelhof as Hennie (a widower who wants to live a simple, quiet life with economic freedom); Albert Meritz as Gert Marais (a stroke survivor now living in a frail care facility); Elsabe Daneel as Renske Minaar (an artistic, eccentric, lively, quirky, and empathetic widow who loves people and follows her own rules) and Ivan Abrahams as Marshal Jones (a widower desperately clinging to the memory of his late wife – for him, death is almost something to look forward to)," a press statement reads.
"Denver Vraagom plays Pretty Boy, a single Karaoke King who can't take responsibility for anything, holding onto his fading looks."
Karavaan starts on SABC 2 (DStv 192) on Tuesday, 8 November at 19:30 and will air new episodes weekly.
