Depart Wilderness and travel to South Africa’s ‘Ostrich Capital’, the town of Oudtshoorn. Here we visit the Safari Ostrich Show Farm, an operating farm where visitors see large groups of ostriches at differing stages of development. The tour starts in the breeding camp with a nest of ostrich eggs, where the first stage of the ostrich life cycle is explained. We get the opportunity to test the strength of the eggs by standing on them - a great photo opportunity. During the breeding season visitors can observe ostrich eggs hatching in the incubator rooms. One gets the rare opportunity to sit on an ostrich and those who are brave enough can even try their hand at riding the world’s largest bird. The tour ends with an ‘Ostrich Derby’ where local jockeys display their riding skills

After a traditional lunch, we continue to the Cango Caves
The fully guided tour starts in the cathedral like Van Zyl’s Hall and ends approximately 600m further into the cave in the African Drum Room. Even though the tour covers the largest chambers of the cave system, it is a relatively easy walk, including a reasonable number of stairs. The tour takes an hour and enables one to experience the best and largest of the chambers and speleothems that this cave has to offer

The day continues to the Cango Wildlife Ranch and Valley of Ancients, endangered species breeding facility extraordinaire. This, the oldest and biggest cheetah contact centre worldwide, offers visitors the rare opportunity of interacting with hand-reared cheetahs and the chance to get actively involved in saving this species and others from extinction. Explore the facts and fiction surrounding crocodiles, view elegant cheetahs and giggle at the antics of Bengal tiger cubs

For the adventurous, enjoy face to face encounters with wildlife in the ‘Natural Encounters’ programme where you can touch a cheetah, enjoy the closeness of a tiger cub, wrap yourself in a python and even dive with Nile crocodiles (additional cost for these experiences is not included). The day concludes with a scenic drive over the Outeniqua Pass to George and onward to Wilderness where you will be dropped off at your hotel
