About the area

Oudtshoorn is situated in the Klein (little) Karoo, on the edge of the Garden Route, between the Outeniqua and Swartberg Mountain Passes.

Oudtshoorn is a popular tourist attraction because of the spectacular Cango Caves, a 20-million-year-old network of limestone chambers. But it is mostly famous for having the largest ostrich population in the world! And a to visit to one of the show farms in the area is highly recommended.
