If you're an ostrich looking for work then you've come to the right place. Oudtshoorn, home of "those big weird birds" said Kat. The original Boers farmed then on a huge scale and they still do for meat and as tourist attractions. Giant billboards around the town advertise ostrich as lean mean healthy red meat.
We tried to eat one giant ostrich egg in the morning but failed, one egg is the equivalent of 24 hen eggs, one big protein punch for breakfast, it bunged us up for a few days after. We spent a couple of days in Oudtshoorn, driving over the Schwarzberg pass, an engineering marvel in the year 1884. Visited Swellendam and the old prison which was dull and browsed the shops that sell painted ostrich eggs, ostrich meat and feather dusters, apparently their feathers makes an amazing feather duster.
Ostriched out after two days we left for route 64.
Love Dan & Kat
