Guests are collected from a pre-arranged pick-up point in Cape Town. We set off along the famous Route 62 and wind our way through mountain passes, vineyards and tropical fruit orchards to the quaint town of Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo, otherwise known as the “Ostrich Capital of the World”.
We go straight to the Cango Caves for an underground tour of its dripstone caverns which open into vast halls of towering stalagmite and stalactite formations. You can choose to go on the heritage tour or the adventure tour which sees you crawling on your hands and knees through underground tunnels.
The day ends with an evening out in Oudtshoorn. You can eat out at one of the popular restaurants in town which serve authentic Karoo meals or stay in for a braai (barbeque) of ostrich or lamb kebabs.
