Highgate Ostrich Show Farm in Oudtshoorn is a great family attraction that is educational as well. Learn all about ostriches! http://www.where2stay-southafrica.com/activity/Oudtshoorn/Highgate_Ostrich_Show_Farm
Richtersveld, South Africa: This is one of the hottest places I have been. But the plants are very interesting and you have the Orange River to cool off. Watch the monkey's because they are watching you!
