The Klein Karoo town of Oudtshoorn is best known for the Cango Caves nearby and its heyday during the ostrich feather boom of 1900–1914. Feathers were high-fashion items that fetched enormous prices, bringing wealth that was reflected in the sandstone buildings of the era. Discover some of Oudtshoorn’s buildings in this photo blog.

There are lots of other lovely old sandstone buildings in Oudtshoorn, making a drive or walk around the centre very rewarding. Many of them are in Baron Van Rheede and High Street, which make a good starting point.
