Oudtshoorn Adventures.

Known for its ostrich farms and roads that were built wide enough to turn an ox wagon, the Little Karoo town of Oudtshoorn is full of historic charm.

While its museums tell of days past, there are dozens of activities that will have you living in the present and enjoying every moment of your visit to this area.

It is a 30-minute drive from Oudtshoorn to the Cango Caves where you can enjoy a guided tour of this Precambrian limestone wonder. While you're there, book for a zip line tour and enjoy a 900-metre course that takes you from the caves and into the valley.

If you would prefer to interact with animals, choose between riding an ostrich or getting up close to a large crocodile (with you in a cage, of course!).

Lace up your hiking boot and immerse yourself in the area by doing a slackpacking route or any number of hiking trails in the area. It is, as Oudtshoorn Tourism describes, "An ecological hotspot where three distinct plant biomes (succulent karoo, cape thicket and fynbos) converge".

And then, there is fishing. Fly fishing - for indigenous yellow fish with guided day trips and overnight tours.

If you have the fortune of passing through the town in March, your timing may be right to catch the annual Little Karoo National Arts Festival (Klein Karoo Nationale Kunsstefees), South Africa's largest Afrikaans language arts festival.

At the end of a day well spent, enjoy good food with wine produced by farms in the area.

This town is so much more than the ostrich farms for which it is famed. Take the opportunity to enjoy cultural, historical, natural, wildlife and adventure experiences when you visit Oudtshoorn.
