The best attractions & experiences in Oudtshoorn

When it comes to Oudtshoorn attractions, the next big thing on the tip of any tourist’s tongue after ostriches is “Cango Caves”. They’re fairly famous and with the sheer size of their natural underground cathedrals it’s no wonder why – it’s not just the claustrophobics that will find this attraction breathtaking. Marvel at the stalagmites and muse at the stalactites as you sweep through the vast chambers on a guided heritage tour. 

Cradling Oudtshoorn in their capable arms are the stunning Swartberg mountains. It’s here that you’ll discover an unmade road winding to the summit; also known as one of the most spectacular mountain passes in the world. Head up there at sunset for pictures that you’ll even surprise yourself with. Or, join a guided eco tour to learn all the secrets of the enigmatically named ‘black mountains’. 

To get your blood pumping, there’s no better way to discover this UNESCO World Heritage Site than from the rough-and-ready seat of a mountain bike. As others clamber back in their cars, ready to sit back, relax and gently wind back down the pass at the hands of the designated driver, you could be getting suited and booted for a slightly bumpier ride – the only way to really appreciate the setting.

In our minds, experiences are what make the holiday which is exactly why we’ve included certain must-do’s into your itinerary already. Like the idea of the Garden Route base itinerary? You’ll get a Heritage Tour of the world famous Cango Caves thrown in as part of the base experience pack. Head to the itinerary builder to see what else this itinerary includes.

Cango Caves

There’s something decisively inaccessible and elusive about caves. They evoke an image of stalagmites and stalactites – nope, we don’t know the difference either – echoing caverns, claustrophobia inducing spaces and a whole lot of eerie darkness. But the beauty of the underground world isn’t limited to the crazy cavers who deem navigating excruciatingly tight spaces to be a thrilling sport.
