Ostrich Rides in Oudtshoorn

By Linda Tancs

Bird watching is quite the sport in Oudtshoorn, a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa some 270 miles east of Cape Town.  In fact, you’ll find here the largest population of ostriches in the world.  Not surprising, considering that this native has been roaming the Karoo since the 19th century.  You can get up close and personal (and attempt a ride, if you dare) at Cango Ostrich Show Farm.  If you’d rather eat than greet, you’ll have the opportunity to sample ostrich steak, eggs or pâté.
