Oudtshoorn, founded in 1847, is the centre of the Little Karoo area. The city is located in the most beautiful surroundings of mountain chains: the Swartberge in the north and the Outeniqua Mountains in the south. It has a very dry climate and temperatures can easily reach over 40C.

Oudtshoorn is well known as the centre of the ostrich industry. Ostrich farms are everywhere, both show farms and industrial farms. Of course also souvenir shops selling ostrich eggs, feathers, leather items, etc.

Another point of attraction is the Cango Caves - I will describe them in detail in a separate tip.

Oudtshoorn is definitely worth staying for a few days.
