Point of Interest
“Oudtshoorn is steeped in history; very odd history, but history nonetheless; and most off it related to the ostrich. Oudtshoorn is ‘The Ostrich capital of the World’ and there are many ostrich show farms around it where a visitor can meet and even hug adorable ostrich chicks. You can learn how to make a feather duster; you get the chance to stand on some ostrich eggs (to prove how strong they are) and if you are small you might even be allowed to ride one. Then, after the tour; you can visit the on-site restaurant and stuff yourself silly with the meat from the silly long-legged birds.The tours last from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. ”
