The town is home to the largest ostrich population in the world, with approximately 400 farms rearing the bird species surrounding the town.

Apart from ostrich farm tours, there are astonishing caves, crocodile farms, hiking trails and much more to explore while you stay in accommodation in Oudtshoorn.

With Oudtshoorn hosting festivals such as the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK), accommodation in the area is plentiful, as many property owners have chosen to convert their Victorian and Cape styled homes into accommodation facilities for visitors who flood the town annually to watch performances, arts and crafts. The festival is worth attending if you are in town during this period.
