Schoemanshoek is a fertile valley just outside Oudtshoorn on the way to the Cango Caves. The area is mainly a farming area with ostriches and tobacco being farmed here historically. Even though most of the farmers in the valley still farm with ostriches and some crops, most have developed guest houses and restaurants on their properties.

The nice thing about staying in Schoemanshoek is that visitors are right out in farming are. Most establishments are decorated with antiques while visitors get real farming hospitality with just about all the establishments dishing up ostrich steak in the evenings, served by the owners themselves.

  1. That was a beautiful area. Your country has so many guest houses, I loved staying at them. And the ostrich meat is delish.
