Visiting Oudtshoorn provides a combination of adventure, relaxation, and cultural enrichment, making it a worthy addition to any South African itinerary.
The "Ostrich Capital of the World" title has definitely made its mark, with a wide variety of attractions incorporating ostrich feathers, eggs and even ostrich riding.
Brought together by the tantalising taste of the Klein Karoo cuisine, and the exciting activities like the Cango Caves, and encounter with wild animals in their natural habitat.
Oudtshoorn, situated in the semi-arid Klein Karoo region of South Africa, has a climate characterized by hot summers and mild winters.
Although Oudtshoorn is a year-round destination, your best bet for pleasant weather and outdoor activities would be during the spring (September - November) and autumn (March - May) months. If you prefer cooler temperatures and don't mind chillier evenings, winter can also be a great time to explore the region.
Oudtshoorn is located in the Western Cape province, South Africa. Situated in the Klein Karoo between the Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains. It's roughly 420 km (260 miles) east of Cape Town and about 55 km (35 miles) from the coastal town of George.
For most travelers, flying into George and then driving or taking a shuttle to Oudtshoorn is the most convenient option. However, driving from Cape Town or along the Garden Route allows for a more scenic journey and the opportunity to explore other attractions along the way.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
