More info about Oudtshoorn

Getting to Oudtshoorn is part of the fun for no matter which way you arrive, the road offers something spectacular: west from Cape Town along the R62 wine route – the world’s longest, south from the Garden Route over passes extending high above a carpet of pristine forests, east and along a winding road that travels over the same river 30 times through a deep 13km gorge or from the north over the formidable Swartberg Pass that climbs 1000m in just 12km.

Oudtshoorn is nicknamed the ostrich capital of the world, boasting the world’s largest ostrich population and once a booming town enriched by a worldwide demand for the bird’s feathers. The boom has long gone but the ostriches and grand mansions of the ostrich barons remain.

Oudtshoorn is the chief centre of the Little Karoo, a dry area north of the Garden Route in South Africa. Aside from ostrich farming, Oudtshoorn is a major lucerne and honey producer.

Visitors arrive in their busloads to view the Cango Caves, the ostrich show farms and the town’s many other attractions. And spending a few days in the dry, clean air will clear those lungs of city smog in no time!
