It was amazing to see all the ostriches strutting on the compound. What I liked about the compound is that they practiced environmentally sound waste management. They incorporated pigs, sheep and crocodiles (yes crocs) in order to deal with unused parts of the bird and organic waste. The tours can be in the language of your choice. So make sure... More

Alejandro (forgive me if I got the name wrong) was amazing!! He was so detailed, knowledgeable and gave us 150%! Although I was with 2 friends, he didn't rush through the tour because he had 3 people instead of 20. In addition to all the interesting information, he got the male ostrich to do his exquisitely beautiful warning dance to... More

Every thing was just fine and perfect, since front desk up to farm guide. The guider showed a huge commitment with his job and respect with customers and animals. Excepting during my lunch when I was charged by a meal that I had not ordered, even explaining to the manager in charge (Quite arrogant) that the waitress had a very... More

Alexander took us on a nice tour, explained to us a lot about ostrich birth, growth, behavior and it was fun to feed the juvenile ostriches and stand on the egg! $45 US for three of us, one child. We did not try Zambezi the restaurant as my daughter couldn't bear to eat ostrich after seeing the animals running about... More

Disclaimer: I have been to Africa and seen ostriches in the wild. Ostriches penned on a farm doesn't do much for me. That being said, my family had never seen ostriches before. We enjoyed a drive around the farm and we splurged to let the kids ride an ostrich for a few minutes. We got out and fed the birds... More

Took friends there for dinner. Had the set menu which was excellent. The Ostrich steak and Melk Tarts were delicious. Great choice of South African wines too. The host and staff were very knowlegable and friendly. Definite must see for all vacationers who visit this lovely island.

Educational and interactive. A great way to spend a couple hours - old or young. They have you hold a pan of food and stand with their back to the Ostriches. The ostriches reach around you and eat the food. It was an exciting experience for us.

We reached there via Buggy Tours, who said we only had 10min to use the washrooms and take photos. I wish we had stayed longer because I would have loved to try Ostrich meat at their restaurant, and take pictures of the ostriches and go for a tour. I only had time to play with these tame -with feathers clipped-... More

We had a very pleasant, educational and funny visit to the Ostrich farm. Alexander was our guide and he was hilarious and used his humor to also educate us. There is a small gift shop in the front and a restaurant in the back that you can walk around while you wait for your tour to start. They take you... More
