Tour Important Information

Remember cash - some places like in the Karoo (Granaat) doesn't have card facilities as well as the vendors selling the ostrich feather products in Oudtshoorn.

If you are interested in Ostrich Farm visits, let me know. Some of those farms are outside town and have hourly tours, so we must arrange that before hand.

The prices for Matjiesfontein will change depending on the type of room available, so the price can change a bit, but we will confirm that with you before the tour starts.
