Fauna and Flora of Oudtshoorn

Explore this page to discover some of the different animals, birds and insects which occur naturally in this region. An exciting recent development is the number of game farms and lodges that are being created – leading to the reintroduction of species like elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe which had all been hunted out of this area a long time ago. Visit South Africa and see all these great animals live!

Oudtshoorn lies within the Cape Floral Kingdom, the smallest, yet most diverse of the six Floral Kingdoms. Fynbos is unique to the Cape Floral Kingdom and the succulents found in the area add to the diversity of plant life.
