Oudtshoorn is the place to be in South Africa if you want to visit an ostrich farm. There are several of them in the area. But it’s much more then the ostrich industry, you have the little and the big Karoo, the Swartberg pass and the Cango caves and maybe even much more things to visit and to do.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Ostriches, Cango Caves and great landscapes

    Ik ben geen liefhebber van grotten, maar deze lijken me toch wel de moeite.

    I drove through and saw the ostrich farms but didn't have time to visit the caves. I also missed out on an ostrich ride. Your ostrich facts are interesting and that picture of the chicks is cute!

    Very helpful and good tips. When you were in the Swertberg it was crowded - we only saw two other cars in the whole pass.

    Oudtshoorn, love it! It might get too hot, and you really know your in the Karoo, but a beer rarely tastes as good. Don't know if you made it during the Klein Karoo Kunstefees (KKNK), but the place comes alive at the time :-)
