There are several historical buildings and monuments to see, like the fascinating architecture of the old Ostrich Palaces established during the fashionable feather boom of the 1880's, during which Oudtshoorn became the undisputed Ostrich Capital of the world.

Local arts and crafts as well as a host of ostrich products are some of the wonderful things on offer in the many shops. (Left: C.P. Nel Museum).
