outshoorn is a great little town in the Karoo. it is predominantly one of the large towns in the area and has a large farming community. there are plenty of tourist attraction in the area. these include visiting nature reserves and game parks. or visiting an ostrich farm or the big high light, heading to the cango caves, which are situated just north of outshoorn in the swartberg mountains. if you are a little more adventurous, there is a great camping site and De Hoek resort where there are also chalets available. it is right against the swartberg mountains, which has plenty of hiking, and there is some really good rock climbing in the area aswell. i recommend taking the R62 to get to and from outshoorn as is a beautiful drive, and often less busy than the major routes.
