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.

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.
