Oudtshoorn Heidelberg Pretoria and Nelspruit Report

gepos Okt 20, 2017 deur Danny Brown in Testimonies and Stories

We next flew the hour flight from Cape Town to George on a small plane, where we were picked up by Cedric and his daughter Brumilda.  We then drove from the coast inland over a set of mountains to Oudtshoorn, the "ostrich capital of the world".  It is a small yet important town in South Africa and one of the centers of Afrikaans culture.  In the late 1800s there was a huge boom in the Ostrich market; ostrich feathers were as valuable as diamonds.  This brought a huge amount of wealth to this rugged town built in the little karoo, which is what the locals call the semi-arid desert region they live in.
