Returned to the Cango Ostrich Farm recently with a group from the UK. Still a great experience with friendly staff/guides through the Ostrich tour.

This is the correct address for Cango Ostrich Show Farm, so I guess this is the right place! In order to avoid the heat of the day, we went early and were rewarded with a small tour group. We had great fun, but it depends how much you join in - we had a kiss and a hug and fed... More

First the restaurant: this is an Ostrich farm. You'd think they would make an effort to present the dish in as tasty and appealing a way as possible. But no. Overcooked, tough and smothered in some sticky, indescribable sauce. When we said our meal was just bad, staff just shrugs. Then the tour: supposedly 45 mins. Including the meal time... More

This is not a commercial ostrich farm, and is geared up solely for tourists. The guide was very informative about ostriches and at the same time the visit was entertaining.

Very cheap entry. Very informative and you get very close to the birds all the activities are completely up to you how involved you get. Ostrich massage, kiss, feeding and even riding. Very worth while visiting also the guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

This Ostrich farm is fantastic. Great tour guides and very knowledgable. They make you feel comfortable with these big birds. You get to feed, touch, hug, ride and get massaged by the Ostriches. Good value for money as well.

The ostrich are so cool and I got to see my friends attempt to ride them. A different experience but doesn't take all day or even an hour honestly to see everything
