We head over the Outeniqua Mountains to the Town of Oudtshoorn, known as the “Ostrich Capital of the world”. Here we visit the Cango Caves to go on either an adventure or standard tour through some very large chambers with spectacular limestone formations that are millions of years old. If you chose the adventure tour be prepared to start squeezing through some very tight spaces. If caves are not for you, then you will be able to visit the Cango Endangered Wildlife Ranch, home to many local and exotic endangered species. We then start heading home along the scenic Route 62 through the Klein Karoo.
