"Cheetas & Ostriches" Oudtshoorn by B_Caro

Oudtshoorn Travel Guide: 108 reviews and 234 photos

During our trip through South Africa, we also spent 2 days in Oudtshoorn.
We visited there a crocodile farm, a cheetah farm, the ostriche farm (in my opinion these are all tourist traps, but ok, it is nice to do) and last op not least, the Cango Caves.

    Haha, they had to add some trnquilizers to cheetach's food, indeed... just why you servived touching them :-). Great picture of an ostrich in travelogue. Haha, there is an ostrich farm (for eggs not for visitors though) in... my hometown.

    The Swartbergpass is definitely on our list. We'll be going in less than 3 months ...

    It really looks like a tourist trap, but I'm glad they're using the money for a good cause

    I can't believe they let you touch the cheetahs! It looks touristy but if the proceeds go to protect these animals, then I'm all for it. :-)
