On arrival at the farm we were greeted by a very friendly guide. Our kids were in awe with feeding the ostrich and we all enjoyed the tractor trip. It was great to get so close to these big birds. Afterwards we had a lovely light meal at their Cafe which was yummy and just enough.

This was an amazing experience. Learnt so much about these funny, pre historic flightless birds. Made me read and find out more about them afterwards. Able to understand their diet and get to feed them. Plus I even got to ride one. Not for the faint hearted?!

We visited Safari one sunday afternoon and had a great time. We had a light snack at the Café while our kids enjoyed the play area. We joined the 2 oclock tour. Our guide was very entertaining and friendly. My kids enjoyed all the activities but mostly the feeding of the animals. Would recommend Safari!

We went to this farm thinking we were just having lunch and learning a little about ostriches. The safari ride made it more interesting as it allowed us to interact with the ostriches and understand them better.
