Adventures in Oudtshoorn

The largest town in the Little Karoo, Oudtshoorn is close to the world-renowned Cango Caves, which are great to explore – but only on a guided tour. It’s a wacky town and there is so much you can do.

The largest town in the Little Karoo, Oudtshoorn is close to the world-renowned Cango Caves, which are great to explore – but only on a guided tour. It’s a wacky town and there is so much you can do.

There are great horse trails just outside the town and you could even spend time with an elephant. If that’s not crazy enough, you can do a cage dive with crocodiles. After that, a quad bike trail seems so – well – normal, and a hot-air balloon ride would be positively relaxing.

But, whatever way you choose to explore the Little Karoo, you will get to see some fabulous scenery, and – while you’re about it – you should check out some of the great wine farms.

Oudtshoorn Adventures

Caving

The Cango Caves are the best known and most accessible cave system in Oudtshoorn. Choose between the standard tour that takes you through a series of deep caverns with lots of stalactites, stalagmites and flow structures, or a longer adventure tour that has you crawling on your belly and shimmying...

Croc Cage Diving

If you thought shark cage diving was a little crazy, try croc cage diving. It’s a real adrenaline rush as you observe these scary, scaly, toothy modern-day dinosaurs from the safety of a cage. Crocs make great white sharks look like underwater pussy cats.

Fishing

Fly fishing the rivers of the Little Karoo for indigenous yellow fish is an adventure of note. Or, if you’re prepared to travel over the mountain passes that connect the Little Karoo with the Garden Route, you can do some salt-water fly fishing as well. All fishing trips are escorted and all equipment...
