Outeniqua Mountains

It is the visitors who ensure the survival of the farms, which have economically seen much better times. In the years before the First World War, more than 100,000 ostriches were bred on the farms of the Oudtshoorn area. Their feathers were then highly desired fashion accessories. The feather barons of those days could afford to build themselves fabulous "Feather Palaces", some of which can still be admired in Oudtshoorn today.
