Have you ever seen the movie Swiss Family Robinson? Remember the scene where the son races around the property on the back of an Ostrich? If you're someone like I am, you know that that has been on your bucket list since the moment you saw it. Today i got to cross that off my list thanks to the helpful... More

This was worth the extra effort to go see. The business runs a very clean and well planned african experience center around the ostrich but with so much more. The tour guide (Alexander) was terrific and very knowledgable. The farm has much more than just the ostriches. They are a complete operation including emu's, pigs, chickens, ducks, sheep, and crocodiles!... More

Its a small operation, but the kids had fun. You drive in a 4x4 truck and the tour guide tells you informative bits about ostriches and the farm. The highlight is when you are able to get out and feed them.

The farm isnt much to see and the museum is more a bit of fun ... But the deive and the explanations are really good. A must do when on curacao. We went with a 11 month old baby and she loved it while we learned some new things

Tour was very informative. Unique bird...very entertaining. Love the interaction between the guide and tourists. Standing on the Eggs to demonstrate how strong they are and being able to feed them are for sure the highlight. FYI- riding an ostrich is a separate thing and is an extra costs as opposed to the $16 fee to enter. We hear it... More

I have been to ostrich farms in California and wasn't that impressed. I REALLY did not want to go on this tour but was talked into it. I am glad that I did. The tour takes place in an old military truck so don't wear good clothing for this one. I also have long legs so it was a bit... More

I took this tour while on a cruise to the ABC Islands. The guide, Alexander, told us lots of facts about the ostriches and was entertaining at the same time. He said that because the ostriches see humans as soon as they hatch, they think humans are also ostriches. Because of that link, he was able to entice a male... More

We visited this place a few weeks ago and I was a little suspect ... but my friends wanted to go. The place was really great. The food was outstanding, the tour was fun and I'd highly recommend it to visitors to the island.

Took the tour and lunch. Good information about the animals and operation. Detailed on the operation of the farm. Asked about the missing feathers and good explanation from the guide. Explained the months they have eggs, the way collected and how they extend the season. Photo op while feeding the birds, standing on an egg and other times well organized.... More

This was definitely and interesting and informative tour. Also a lot to learn about the birds and their breeding. The birds can't fly anyway, so wing clipping is not necessary, but I did see some birds that had lost their plumage in part - stress maybe/ Sad if this is the case. The onsite restaurant Zambesi has a good selection... More
