Located in the heart of the Klein Karoo and surrounded by the majestic Langeberg and Outeniqua mountains, Oudtshoorn is famed as being the ostrich capital of the world as well as being home to the world-renowned Cango Caves. Here visitors can enjoy a guided tour of the spectacular limestone caves which are filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
The sandstone ‘feather palaces’ which are found throughout the town are a reminder of the heydays of the feather boom of the early twentieth century. Today visitors can enjoy a tour of an ostrich show farm including trying their hand at riding an ostrich and purchasing ostrich leather products. Also worth visiting is the Cheetah Breeding Farm where visitors can interact with these magnificent cats.
A wide variety of outdoor and adventure activities are available to enjoy including walking and hiking, mountain biking and 4x4 trails. And, for the less energetic simply sit back and relax while taking in the spectacular scenery and surroundings.
