Cango Caves often has queues. Not sure whether it is possible to pre-book.

You can definitely do it in one day. Maybe do the caves in the early morning to avoid queues?

Hi, Hong Kong!

It takes an hour or so to do each of Cango and the ostrich farm. So these are things that should not take all day. (To be sure, you can sign up for special excursions that take longer.)

Cango Cave is about a half-hour by car from downtown Oudtshoorn.

When we went to Cango Cave, about 9 a.m. on a February morning (not low season) we had no queue at all, except for the usual few minutes delay parking our car, buying tickets and waiting for the tour to start. At the ostrich farm we also had a few minutes wait to round up a tour guide.

If you do both in the morning, perhaps with a snack in between, you should be finished by early afternoon.

Happy travels, and let me know if I can help further!
