Holiday in Oudtshoorn accommodation

Oudtshoorn is located in the Western Cape province of South Africa. It is the largest town in the Klein Karoo, or Little Karoo region that is famous for its vineyards. However, Oudtshoorn is more famous thanks to the fact that it is the home to the world’s largest ostrich population thanks to hosting several specialised ostrich breeding farms. Because of all the ostriches, holiday lettings in Oudtshoorn and in particular villas in Oudtshoorn have become very desirable for people to rent when they travel to the region on holiday where they can see, eat and ride these magnificent flightless birds.

Oudtshoorn has a Rich, Long History

The first European explorers of Oudtshoorn arrived in the area in 1689. However, the area was originally inhabited by Bushmen, as evidenced by the many different rock paintings found in the surrounding Swartberg Mountains. There was not a permanent structure established in Oudtshoorn until the 1800s however. It has quickly grown in population since that time, and has become a very popular destination in South Africa not just for people to live and work, but also to travel to on holiday, as evidenced by the many apartments in Oudtshoorn and other holiday accommodation in Oudtshoorn that are available for visitors. What once was a struggling village has become a very prosperous town.

Get Up Close and Personal with the Ostriches

One of the most popular things for people residing in holiday rentals in Oudtshoorn as well as holiday homes in Oudtshoorn to do is learn about why there are so many ostriches in the area. The first ostrich boom was due to their feathers becoming popular as a fashion accessory. Today, ostrich farming remains crucial especially since ostrich meat has become a very popular and more affordable alternative to chicken and beef. You could even try some on your holiday to the region, it is surprisingly tasty.
