From the Caves, you will travel to an Ostrich farm on the other end of Oudtshoorn. You will receive a tour of a working Ostrich farm and possibly have the opportunity to ride an ostrich. You will also learn more about ostrich breeding habits and of the bygone days when Oudtshoorn was in the midsts of the 1920’s ostrich feather boom.

Location

The safari will take you exploring the Garden Route, South Africa. It is the name given to the stretch of forested, coastal area between Mossel Bay and Port Elizabeth. Pressed between these forces of land and water are ancient forests and secluded exotic seaside towns. This malaria-free region is also a long-time favorite for family holidays.

The secret behind the Garden Route is that it combines the fun of a classic bucket-and-spade holiday with unforgettable African adventures. You could go on an elephant-back ride, take a forest canopy tour, bungee jump, or visit a monkey or bird sanctuary. Dolphins are often seen offshore as are whales in season.
