In South Africa’s Western Cape is the city of Oudtshoorn. The city is about 50km north of the southern coast and is situated between a number of nature reserves. Visitors to the city can utilize the Cape Town gateway for international and domestic flights before continuing the rest of the way by road or getting a connecting flight to George. Those coming in via George will get the pleasures of a scenic drive over the Outeniqua Pass.
The offerings of Oudtshoorn include much of what defines South Africa – safari, adventure, and wine tours. Travelers can take in beautiful scenery alongside some of nature’s fiercest and grandest creatures. One site in particular that puts Oudtshoorn on the map is the Cango Caves
, located approximately 15 minutes to the north. Ostriches are also quite the thing here with the city being the ostrich capital of the world. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about these majestic birds as well as get up close and personal at sites such as the Cango Ostrich Farm
