This is a short tour of a "show" ostrich farm (e.g., they're only kept for tours; this is not a working commercial farm). The tour starts with a canned but informative presentation on ostriches and the myriad uses for their feathers and leathers. The tour...More

The presentation was well conducted and informative. Compact surroundings to get close to a few ostriches and learn of their habits and unique little mannerisms.

We were welcomed with tea/coffee before our tour, then given a very informative talk about the birds. We were then told more about how the eggs are incubated before being shown the stunning birds. We saw a pygmy ostrich, emu and a number of ostriches....More

I got to kiss an Ostrich, stand on its eggs and see it twist its neck in positions that would kill a human. Great place for kids and families.

After we had a welcome with coffee or thea we had a guided tour with a very good and funny guide. You could hug an ostrich or feed them. I'd expect to see more ostriches in open field but they only show you some.

Our tourguide Jaco van Dyk showed us all the details of breeding Ostriches. Since we were the only visitors in this tour we had ample time to ask questions and meet with the animals. The tour was humorous and very interesting.

There is no age limit for riding an ostrich but please be aware that they can run extremely fast so keep this in mind when deciding if it is safe for your child, hope this helps.
