Garden Route Fails
Why go to Oudtshoorn?
She won’t forget that ride for a while!
Oudtshoorn on the way back to Cape Town from the Garden Route and is ostrich capital of the world as well as being a pretty place of wide streets and grand houses – grand B & Bs too, for that matter.
Drives around the area are magnificent, such as over the Swartberg Pass, and near Oudtshoorn are attractions such as the Cango Caves and the Cango Wildlife Ranch, but the bizarre ostrich is the star of the show here and a short, informative tour of a farm, including walking on ostrich eggshells and riding the big bird – if you’re not too big yourself – are memorable experiences.

An unhappy email from a Bugged visitor: andre.burger
After reading your review of Mossel Bay, the Garden Route, Knysna, Oudthoorn ect, I was amazed at what you had to say to the rest of the world via your website. I dont know when you where there or with who you visited this area, but I think that you must have been half bind and unable to get around much. I have been staying in Mossel Bay for a number of years and find it a fascinating and lovely place to stay. The town in clean, the people friendly, helpful and the weather fantastic. The Garden Route, Knysna and the rest of the Southern Cape is absolutely beautiful and full of lovely areas and filled numerous activities for all walks of life. I am truly offended by what you have written about such a lovely area.
I console myself that people who read your articles will think the same as me: here is the opinion of one person and only one person that has been splattered on the internet giving incorrect info and an incorrect impression of the Southern Cape.
My offer is open to you next time you visit the Southern Cape, come and visit me and I will show you this wonderful and beautiful place. And its very easy to find me just go to Mossel Bay, locate Trawlers Pub and Restaurant in Marsh Street, and ask for Andre, thats me. They will know how to get hold of me and I will show you around our beautiful area. So the invitation is open and please do put this letter on your website. I will be watching to see if you will do so
