Today out tour of all the towns surrounding Port Elizabeth (and a little further away) ends in Oudtshoorn. From George and Mossel Bay the road takes you over the Outeniqua Mountains into the Klein Karoo (Small place of Thirst). It is a area flanked by the Outeniqua Mountains in the south and the Swartberg Mountains in the north. The climate here is much different from that along the coast. Its is dry and hot. Ideal ostrich country. The main attractions in the town are the Cango Caves, the Cango Wildlife Ranch, Ostrich Show Farms and many craft shops. Most visitors end up visiting an ostrich farm where all tours end with visitors been given the opportunity to sit or ride on an ostrich. We will be spending a week in Oudtshoorn during the December holidays so I hope to post a lot of pictures of the area on The Firefly Photo Files early next year.
Tomorrow we will return to Port Elizabeth to further explore the beautiful city and area I live in. I hope you enjoyed the tour. See you tomorrow.
