Broader region

Visiting Oudtshoorn provides a combination of adventure, relaxation, and cultural enrichment, making it a worthy addition to any South African itinerary.

Why

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.

Highlights:

  • Adventure Activities: Mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding is the perfect way to explore the region for the intrepid travellers.
  • Karoo Culture and History: Experience the local culture by exploring the town's historical buildings and museums.
  • Ostrich Farms: "Ostrich Capital of the World," Learn about the fascinating birds, feed them (just watch out for your shiny items) and try an ostrich egg omelette.

When

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.

Where

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.

Great great service!
It’s my 1st time going to Africa and I didn’t even know where to start. Thanks to Safari.com (Jayson and Catherin), I simply have not had to worry about anything. Their service and help has gone beyond any travel agent I’ve ever experienced. Any doubt I have, they were responsive, quick and efficient. And always so so nice.

Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates…
Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates on my Safari change a couple of times and she was more than accommodating making everything work for me with no stress. The resort she picked for me is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to stay there. I’m also staying 3 nights in Cape Town and she took care of my hotel and of all my connecting flights . Was a big relief and spoke to her on the phone a couple of times. Very sweet highly recommend if you want a stress free vacation

Fast, Friendly, and Reliable Service
My travel advisor Mel was amazing. She was timely in her response, non judgemental about my budget, ans very helpful in figuring out potential safaris to fit my desires. She was super friendly and knowledgeable, and never once made me feel like I was out of my league.

Great service from Jayson at Safari.com
Jayson and his team have worked hard to help us put together a safari package that would hit all the points on our wish list. After weeks of work, when we came with some changes to the itinerary, he worked it in and added time in a location we hadn't considered, but we think is worth the time. They provided lot's of useful information and respond quickly to our frequent questions. Though we will not be taking our trip for a few weeks yet, we are excited and looking forward to having a once in a lifetime experience!
