Oudtshoorn was one of my favourite places to visit along the garden route as I was eager to visit one of the ostrich farms and see the workers racing these giant birds and learn all about them. We finally settled on Highgate Ostrich Farm where our guide took us on a tour and we learned about the birds, their eggs, what their feathers are used to make and saw the ostrich races at the end. I was sad to learn that I could not ride one of the birds as I was too heavy, but did have a photo sitting on one! Did you know that it takes 1 and a half hours to hard boil an ostrich egg??? and that 1 ostrich egg is equivalent to 24 chickens eggs!!!
We also visited the nearby Cango Caves too which were quite impressive and stayed at a local backpacker hostel. Our evening meal was at the Spur Steakhouse which was a favourite of ours while in SA as it was cheap and cheerful!
