The Ostrich metropolis of the world (approx. 50 mins away)
A brilliant drive over the Outeniqua Mountains in the semi desert of Small Karoo. Here you experience the African vegetation. Make a Stop now and again and marvel at the dream panorama. In Oudtshoorn you must visit the Ostrich farm, the oldest in the world and well known farm is the Highgate Ostrich farm. Great Tour!
A few kilometers outside of Oudtshoorn are the famous Cango Caves, a must see!
On the road from Oudtshoorn to Cango Caves on the leftside is the Cango Wildlife Ranch, to be recommended. Further on from the Cango Caves is the Swartberg Pass, a National Monument. The drive over the Pass is very challenging for the driver but well worth it, a spectacular view to say the least! On the otherside of the Pass you are in the green Oase Price Albert and in another world.
Tip: The best Ostrich handbags and accessories are to be found in Oudtshoorn in 'Klein Karoo Ostrich Boutique'.
