Travel Tips for Oudtshoorn

OSTRICHES

by PEE-WEE

The breeding animals reach sexual maturity after two to three years. Mating occurs all year long, but mainly from April to September. As soon as the male has scraped a sufficiently deep nesting trough into the ground, the female lays one egg a day, until there are 10 to 15 eggs. From the laying time, incubation time lasts about 42 days. Males and females take turns, but the males usually do the "night shift", because they are well camouflaged with their dark feathers.

Cango Caves

by mikelisaanna

The Cango caves are a beautiful cave system located about 30 km north of Oudtshoorn. There are organized tours of the cave that begin every hour throughout the day. The 1-hour tour takes you through the first three large chambers, which contain a lot of stalactites and stalagmites, as well as rock curtains, that have formed over thousands of years from the minerls carried by the water dripping through the caves' limestone rocks. There is also a longer "adventure tour", which takes you deeper into the cave, but requires one to crawl, climb, and quezze through tight passages.

Cango Caves

This place was AMAZING. There are no other words to describe it!
You take a guided tour, and you can choose from the standard tour (which we did) or the adventure tour, which will see you on your front wiggling through small spaces and all that!

On the standard tour we were guided through the caves and taken to many chambers, as always certain formations have their own names etc etc!

It is a stunning place though, the caves are outstanding and it is well worth visiting.

Oudtshoorn

by mvtouring

A place known to many of us Afrikaans speaking people, due to the annual KKNK festival being held there. Oudtshoorn is the ostrich capital of the world. Here ostriches are found in great numbers and the region produces the best feathers, leather products and ostrich meat world wide. But the world’s biggest bird is just one of the many attractions in this area of interesting contrasts.

This town is the commercial hub of the greater Klein Karoo region and is situated in a beautiful valley between the Outeniqua- and Swartberg Mountains.

The Cango Caves are the oldest and one of the most popular attractions in our region. It is also one of the great natural wonders of the world.

Several ostrich show farms offer entertaining daily tours and demonstrations during which one can learn about the history and use of these birds, their life cycle and about how they are farmed. Curio shops on the farms and in Oudtshoorn specialise in the finest ostrich leather, ostrich meat and ostrich feather products.

Oudtshoorn is the ostrich breeding capital of the world(?). My one and only goal here was to ride an ostrich and I got to do it. I also had ostrich bbq at the hostel -mmmmmmmm. In addition to checking out the Ostrich farm, I also went to the Congo Caves with some of the people I met in the backpackers hostel.

I had loads of fun in the evening while staying at Backpackers Paradise. Met some Aussies, Kiwis, and Irish people, as well as some locals. We played Jenga and pool all night and got pretty hammered. I think I even won a game of killer pool....
