Oudtshoorn is the feather capital of the world with loads of Ostrich farms but not to worry if that doesn't feature in your gardern route itinerary. You can definitely have the first hand experience in the most scenic environment.

We arrived before the 9:00 am start, and in quaint CT style things were meandering forward. Perfect for a chill out vibe. Tour was suitable to children and food after was very good. I recommend the ostrich burger or prego roll.
