A Town to grow, work, play & prosper in

Welcome to Oudtshoorn Municipality

The Greater Oudtshoorn area is nestled at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains …

…in the heart of the Little Karoo region, Western Cape, South Africa. It is defined as a semi-desert area with a unique and sensitive natural environment. It was once the indigenous home of the Koi-San people and the rock paintings on the walls of the caves in the surrounding area sends a message that survival in this area requires respect for the natural environment.
