New Dining Area at Safari Ostrich Farm

Over the years Safari Ostrich Farm, Oudtshoorn, consistently strives to make positive changes. This year we have focused on our outer dining area and boutique shop. The outer dining area has always been shaded awnings.  While enjoyed by our clients throughout the year the challenge has been rainy days and those excessive hot summer days.  


Our solution is to have built a new structure at Safari Ostrich Farm without losing our farm feel.  Thus far clients have enjoyed dining in our new farm style shed. Still new and getting polished

How many people does Oudtshoorn have

Many people wonder how many people live in the Oudtshoorn district. Oudtshoorn seems a small town, but stretches to the hamlets of De Rust, Volmoed and Matjiesrivier.  They are incorporated into the Greater Oudtshoorn Municipality. The municipal boundary now spans over 3535 km/sq
 Oudtshoorn was laid out in 1847 on the farm Hartebeesfontein. By 1865 there were 1145 people living in the town.
In 1891 it had risen to 4386 and by 1904 - 8849 people lived here.  The 2011 Census indicated that Oudtshoorn has 95 933 people living within its municipal boundary.
