Where to stay in Oudtshoorn – farm / lodge or in town?

Hi all.

We (parents & 14 year old) will have two nights in Oudtshoorn between Hermanus & Plett. We will no doubt want to visit an Ostrich Farm & the early morning Meerkats. And optionally Buffelsdrift GP, Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Park, Swartberg Pass, waterfalls depending on time & energy.

Any thoughts on where best to base ourselves? I’m tossing up between either a B&B in town within walking distance of restaurants, e.g. 88 Baron van Reede Guesthouse / Gumtree Guest House, or alternatively somewhere just out of town with a bit of wildlife & Karoo views, e.g. Klein Karoo Game Lodge / Africamps Klein Karoo. If the latter, I expect we will self-cater one night & drive into town another.

Note – De Zeekoe is too expensive for us, Buffelsdrift not available, and we will have spent a few days in Kruger beforehand.

Looking forward to suggestions. Thanks in advance…
