Ostrich Capital of the World

Nestled in the arid valley of Little Karoo, the town of Oudtshoorn remains the hub of everything ostrich-related, housing the world's largest population of the flightless birds. Farms and ranches dot the surrounding landscape, with ostrich sanctuaries and conservation centers serving as conveniently located attractions for those looking to get out of town for a little while. The town also marks the starting point of Route 62, a scenic drive that leads to many wine estates and cultural villages. On a holiday in Oudtshoorn, you can enjoy the scenic countryside setting, sample wines and local delicacies of the Little Karoo region, or take day trips on the Garden Route. Our South Africa vacation route planner allows you to plan your trip to Oudtshoorn and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
