The town of Oudtshoorn along the Swartberg mountains is the home of the largest ostrich population worldwide.
Explore Oudtshoorn through hiking in the Swartberg Mountains, a Cape Floral World Heritage site, with Khoisan cave paintings and a waterfall. Take in the rolling Oudtshoorn landscape from above on a balloon flight, or traverse its slopes while horse riding and get closer to its fauna and flora.
See Oudtsthoorn’s famous big birds on an ostrich tour, or smaller ones like the Verreaux’s eagle while birdwatching. Oudtshoorn’s skies also offer sightseeing tour opportunities, whether it’s a sunrise or sundowner on the Swartberg Pass or the spectacularly starlit Karoo night sky.
Hiking, balloon trips, horse riding, ostrich tours and birdwatching.
Finding accommodation easily during the KKNK Arts Festival, at the end of March.
