We had a very enjoyable stay in your town, friendly, helpful people. Shows were great, venues were great, vibe lekker, my children could walk in the streets at night without fear of mugging.Will come back. The waterfall on the way to the caves is breathtaking, a must see!!

Gemütliche Gasthäuser aller Kategorien. Fast nirgends hohen Sicherheitsmauern mit Stacheldraht sichtbar. Die Strassen sind sauber. Unter den Trottoirs verlaufen oft plattengedeckte Wasserkanäle. Da gibt es eingebrochene Platten welche auf dem nächtliche Nachhauseweg gefährlich sein könnten. Vielleicht fehlt das Geld oder es schläft eine Behörde!

The last time I was in Oudsthoorn was 17 years ago. It was well worth coming back again, especially during festival time!

Oudtshoorn is a good stopover for two nights. See the Caves, ostriches and tigers. There's a good value golf course and good restaurants (Le Colony is recommended).

After 50 years I returned to Oudtshoorn and like when I was a child enjoyed every single moment. Such friendly people (Afrikaans like us), clean streets and wonderful shops. I will be back at the end of 2013.

We found our time in Oudtshoorn very relaxing, offering new things to see and learn about. We targeted the Safari Ostrich Farm, Cango Wildlike Park, & Cango Caves. We managed to do all three, as well as see the Rus & Vrede Falls, near the Cango Caves over two days. We also found awesome restaurants along the Cango Caves road. I suggest one takes time and spend in this area, it is wonderful. Michael & Aldene Stiebel - Lephalale

Unfortunately we were in deadline to reach our next destination, but we did manage to squeeze in cango caves, and cango ostrich farms... both highly recommended.
As we were passing through, we noticed the museum and zip lining. definitely a friendly, safe town worth some quality time.

There are many places to visit in Oudtshoorn. We went to the game farm and then ate out at two lovely restaurants. I highly recommend the newly opened Karoopot for its atmosphere - I had the chicken which was lovely but I also saw some interesting potjies and stews on the menu. We also had dinner at Bella Cibo . I had a delicious ostrich pasta and my partner had the ostrich fillet. The rest of the table also thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I have also visited the Cango Caves and ostrich farms in the past. The weather was lovely for early october and we will be back soon!

Oudtshoorn has a range of activities, restaurants that make it a great base to explore the beautiful Klein Karoo.
Friendly town with a lot of character and the everyday comforts and convenience you're used to.
23 October 2012
A bit too busy after we fell in love with Graaf Reniet..
Cango Caves are a must see.
We sampled 3 of the restaurants in town from upmarket at Jemimah's to a pub like C'est la vie and finally Karoopot.
We did not visit an ostrich farm as it did not appeal to us.
Like most towns in S.A. there is an oversupply of wide ranging accommodation.

Oudtshoorn is a beautiful Town. In fact the time we got to Knysna my husband was bored as we had so much adventure in Oudtshoorn.
We started by coming through the Swartberg Pass, which is an experience on its own. The mountain range is stunning. Once we arrived in Oudtshoorn we went to the Cango Caves, another beutiful experience. The highlights of my trip was finding the waterfall - Rus en Vrede, it was the most beautiful thing my eyes saw by far. Felt like I was in Paradise!
The Cango Wildlife Ranch is awesome aswell, many animals to see and friendly tour guides.
My overall experience of Oudtshoorn is 5stars*****
Packed with adventure and beauty, would recommend it to anyone.

Baie dankie vir SafariNow.Com wat vir ons dit moontlik gemaak het om by hierdie plekkie buitekant Oudtshoorn uit te kon kom. Dit is op pad na die Kangogrotte en die mooiste Kerk het ons begroet op ons pad na die vakansieplek. Dié was fantasties! Uitsig asemrowend! Teen die berghang! Tot die hond het ons 'gelike' - het op ons stoep op die bank die hele nag gele en slaap!
Dit was werklik wonderlik. Wens ons kon langer bly! Volgende keer? Definitief!!

One has to visit Oudtshoorn in the spring. Upon approaching Oudtshoorn, the fields are decorated with the most vibrant yellows, oranges, reds and purple flowers. It is a sight to behold in this little Karoo town. There are a number of lovely restruants and curio shope in town, but as one leaves to go to the Cango Caves, one can find a number of game ranches, some with part of the big 5 and plenty to do, as well as wine tasting. The people of Oudtshoorn are very warm and friendly and one will feel very welcome there.

Oudtshoorn is a great holiday destination. You would need at least a week to go and see almost everthing Oudtshoorn as to offer. Its a great place for tourist. Lots of great resturant and Curio shops. Caters for both budget holiday makers and the big spenders. Oudtshoorn is a place for both young & young at heart holiday makers. My children enjoyed the Cango wildlife the most.

Oudtshoorn and its people will be one of the memorable visits to South Africa! Lots of natural attractions with majestic nature experiences, i.e. Swartberg Pass, Meiringspoort, etc. The legacy of an era of the ostrich boom a must to see in many well-preserved and beautiful old restored buildings. Lots of out-door fun and activities for adults and children alike. Experience this beautiful part of our country first-hand and you will be surprised!!!

Oudtshoorn excels as a stop-over town, or as a day trip destination if you're staying along the Garden Route.
This small rural town offers exciting and interesting activities for all ages. Highlights include the Cango Wildlife Ranch and Cango Caves - both of which are not to me missed. The many ostrich farms are a unique feature of the area, and visitors can even try their luck riding one at certain farms.
Aside from the attractions, the area is beautiful, featuring snow-capped peaks in Winter, ubiquitous hop farms south of the town, and gorgeous rural scenery.

Love this remote town, something magic about it. Service everywhere we've been to are exceptional. And the people are so friendly and helpful. It is such an amazing experience taking my son (3 years old) to the Cango Wildlife Ranch. We've been there last year October and couldn't wait to visit the Ranch again.

The landscaping and Cango Caves are great. The waterfall is also amazing.
I will go again without hesitation.
11 January 2012
A quiet and peaceful place to appreciate after busy cities. Some good restaurants and a few places of interest as well.
08 January 2012
There is lots on offer, not only the cave and ostrich farms but also excellent museums. We enjoyed it very much.

Dit is 'n baie skoon dorp met baie vriendelike mense. Besoek gerus al die museums - beste museum in die land!
Oudtshoorn is a a very clean town with friendly people. The museums are worth a visit - the best museum in the country.

Definatley make a turn by the Cango Wild Ranch, Cango Caves and Cango Ostrich farm; it is a great experience.
12 October 2011
Oudtshoorn offers a lot of leisure activities for families and for the adventurer. We only spent one night in Oudtshoorn but a person can easily spend their whole vacation in the region.
03 October 2011
Oudtshoorn is one of the most beautiful places one can visit to relax and just enjoy the beauty of nature.
03 October 2011
I personally love Oudtshoorn. It is such a friendly place with so many things to do, or if it is your want, an ideal place to just relax and chill. You can go to the Cango Caves, visit an ostrich farm or check out the animals at the Cango Wildlife Ranch. It never gets boring.

Oudtshoorn is the largest town in the Klein Karoo and is home to the world's largest ostrich population. It is a great place for a holiday. Enjoy great food from world-renowned restaurants, or explore the history of one of South Africa's oldest towns.
02 August 2011
Oudtshoorn is a superb place to recharge. A very hospitable town with a distinct lack of stress. Once the teenagers got used to the idea that there is no movie house, big theatre, etc, they got fully involved in the quad bikes, 4x4 routes, hikes, star gazing, ostrich farms, cave exploring and picnics under the wide open skies. Having travelled there for a sports tournament, we now look forward to returning for some music festivals and other interesting events.

Try Ostrich at Bronco! Cango Caves a must.
