Stay Location


Best time to go to Oudtshoorn

This mountain-flanked setting with its incredible local cave network and brilliant adventure opportunities has perfect year-round weather. However, the best time to go is during the warmer months from November to February, when you can indulge in the summer sun and visit the nearby farms. This is when you will experience the most pleasant daytime temperatures and very limited rainfall.
