Ostrich Capital of the World

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.
