1. Cango Caves
The Swartberg range boasts 56 cave systems and is thus rather like an enormous Swiss cheese. However, most of the systems are closed to the public in order to preserve their exquisite and ancient stalagmite and stalactite formation.
The largest of all, though, Cango Caves, is open to all. Accompanied by a guide, you can venture into its giant ’concert hall’ where the acoustical conditions make even horrible voices sound really rather nice. Try singing in there and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
For the more daring, an adventure tour takes you through a set of twisting tunnels and curvy cavities, often on hands and knees and sometimes on your belly. People of ample proportions might want to opt for the standard tour instead.
The standard tour lasts an hour and costs R60 per adult and R30 per child. The 90-minute adventure tour costs R75 for adults and R50 for children.

2. Hot Air Ballooning
Sunrise over the Klein Karoo is beautiful. Even more so if you’re in a balloon. The Swartberg range rises to the north like jagged teeth and the Outeniqua range rolls southwards to the ocean. There is silence but for the occasional blast from the burner and the peace and beauty are beyond description.
Upon landing you are treated to a sumptuous champagne breakfast which will make you merry – and help ease the pain of the price tag as a one-hour flight will set you back R2100pp. But it will be an experience you’ll never forget.
3. Ostrich Farm Tours
Oudtshoorn is steeped in history; very odd history, but history nonetheless; and most of it related to the ostrich. Oudtshoorn is ‘The Ostrich capital of the World’ and there are many ostrich show farms around it where a visitor can meet and even hug adorable ostrich chicks.
You can learn how to make a feather duster; you get the chance to stand on some ostrich eggs (to prove how strong they are) and if you are small you might even be allowed to ride one. Then, after the tour; you can visit the on-site restaurant and stuff yourself silly with the meat from the silly long-legged birds.The tours last from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours and cost around R60 for adults and R30 for children, excluding meals.
