your destination

Oudtshoorn

The towns of Oudtshoorn and De Rust are in the Klein Karoo between the Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains. Oudtshoorn is the ostrich capital of the world. The world’s biggest bird is just one of the many attractions in this area of exceptional contrasts and natural beauty. The region is home to the spectacular Cango Caves, Africa’s largest show cave system; an ecological hotspot where three distinct plant biomes (succulent karoo, cape thicket and fynbos) converge; and the Swartberg mountain range, which is part of the Cape Floral World Heritage Site.

The ostrich capital of the world is an adventure, culture and environment destination in the Klein Karoo – the unique semi-arid landscape that lies between the Swartberg and Outeniqua mountain ranges.

First Excursion:

Safari Ostrich Farm

Safari Ostrich Farm, established in 1956, welcomes you to the ostrich capital of the world – Oudtshoorn. On arrival, you will meet one of our professional guides, who will take you on an unforgettable tour, where you will learn more about these remarkable birds and their fascinating nature.

Ostrich Farm Lunch includes : Home baked rolls, Seasonal Salad, Grilled Ostrich Steak (vegetarian options available on request), Seasonal Vegetables, Samp – Traditional White Maize, Dessert.
A visit to Oudtshoorn would be incomplete without including Safari Ostrich Show Farm on your itinerary. Situated in the heart of “Ostrich Country” and only 6km from Oudtshoorn, Safari has been in operation since 1956. Safari was established by Derek Fisch and Harry Lipschitz both being 4th generation ostrich farmers.

Our climate here in the “Klein Karoo” is ideal for these large birds to breed and live. The Oudtshoorn and Karoo area can also be seen as the ostrich capital of the world and it was also here where the big ostrich feather and leather boom happened.

Oudtshoorn is also an ideal tourist town with a rich history and things to do for the whole family. We would really encourage our out of town visitors to stay a night and explore this region.

Final Excursion:

The Cango Caves

The Cango Caves is a cultural and natural landmark in South Africa. The 20 million year-old Cango Caves system consists of a series of hidden chambers cut deep into a thick limestone rock layer. It is situated in the Swartberg Mountains, 30 kilometres north of Oudtshoorn, in South Africa’s Western Cape Province.

The Cango Caves became a popular attraction during the 1800s. Many visitors broke off stalagmites and stalactites and wrote their names on the walls. In response, the then governor of the Cape, Lord Charles Somerset, published the first Caves Regulation in 1820. It was designed to protect an environmental resource and banned the collection of souvenirs. Entrance to the caves cost the equivalent of six dollars, the modern equivalent of about R500. Many of the significant discoveries of the caves were made by the first full-time guide, Johnnie van Wassenaar, who opened many of the side chambers and introduced thousands of people to Cango 1, which remains the only part of the caves open to the public.

QUICK FACTS

  • Frequently described as one of the great Natural Wonders of The World.
  • The biggest show cave system in Africa.
  • Inhabited since the Early Stone Age.
  • It is South Africa’s oldest tourist attraction.
  • The formations are unique: they would not have normally formed in this area and are a result of faulting.
