“Great tour”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We debated about visiting the Ostrich Farm but was very happy that we did. We arrived early and was greeted warmly by everyone we interacted with. After buying our tickets we were taken on the tour by guide Jaco even though it was just two of us there at the time. He really made the experience very interactive and fun and we really enjoyed ourself. We highly recommend this to anyone visiting Oudtshoorn. The kids will love it (the adults also).

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

If you want to know more about ostriches go to the farm. It is well worth it. Our guide was very informative. We even sat on an ostrich but declined to race on one! Not sure if the travel insurance covered that!

Thank you for your review ! I am glad you enjoyed your guided tour and had a great time. I do not know if travel insurance covers ostrich riding as well ! I would imagine it does. Riding at Safari Ostrich Farm is done under very safe circumstances and we never have any persons injuring themselves since we are so attentive to both the ostrich and the "rider's" well-being. Thank you for your visit and feedback.

“Great place to find out about ostriches”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We had a super guide who gave us excellent information and an experience of the life of ostriches. Fed them, held chicks. Stood on eggs, handled eggs, sat on the back of them and watched a race. Great value
