Ostrich Farms

The history and development of Oudtshoorn is inextricably connected with the growth of the ostrich feather industry from as early as 1860. By the turn of the twentieth century (during the Edwardian Period) the use of prime ostrich feathers in ladies' clothing was high fashion, especially in England and Europe. Feathers were light and easily imported and fetched incredibly high prices.

The resultant prosperity had a profound effect on Oudtshoorn and its immediate environment

Knowledgeable guides will lead you through all aspects of ostrich farming and tell you about the important role that these unique birds play in the daily life of Oudtshoorn.
