You will begin your morning with a complimentary pick-up from your Hotel or Guest House in Oudtshoorn and be taken to De Denne where the tour starts. Your tour will begin with an Ostrich farm tour, you need to put on some comfortable shoes as we will do it farm style. Take your camera with as there will be many special moments to capture, especially when you see the chicks hatch. This you do not want to miss.

Travelling along the R328 towards the Swartberg Mountain Pass we have a stop at the Cango Caves, here you can experience the true beauty of these magnificent caves. The heritage tour will offer you quite some interesting facts, explaining how the caves were discovered as well as giving you a feeling of how it was years back.
Heading up the Swartberg Pass you will have one of the greatest views of the Klein Karoo! Here we unpack the picnic basket, pour you a glass of wine and let you enjoy the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere.

After a lazy lunch we drive down the other side of the mountain towards Prince Albert, ringed by vineyards, fruit, and Olive farms. True Karoo hospitality at its best. You are more than welcome to shop at the Curio shops before we enjoy a decent cup of coffee at one of the local coffee shops. Heading back towards Oudtshoorn we have a quick stop at the Meiringspoort waterfall. Meiringspoort is one of the most beautiful passes. The rock formations are so intimidating yet so breathtakingly beautiful, definitely one of passes you will not forget. The crystal-clear water flowing over the rocks into the pool invites you to dive in but be aware the temperature of the water maybe on the cold side – even during Summertime.
Meiringspoort is now part of a World Heritage Site, it has been flooded several times in the 140 years since it has been established.
After all the exercise we get into the vehicle and headed back to Oudtshoorn through a small town De Rust (here time stood still for a while) appreciating the diversity of farming on the R62. We round off your day with an easy drive back to your Hotel or Guest House.
