We decided to stop in Tehachapi in the way back from Lake Havasu and came across a brochure for this place. We all loved it. My kids, 10 & 14 and my wife. I recommend it. You will learn about ostriches and get up close.

Should not advertise that it is free when they are demanding a mandatory $4 per person. I felt that a donation should be optional. If they are going to claim they are free then they should not demand a fee. Otherwise they should advertise that there is an entrance fee. This is false advertising!

We loved that the guide was extremely knowledgeable and the info was all so interesting. Unfortunately she spoke extremely fast so we missed lots of what she had to say. Just go and enjoy being so close to such amazing birds: the largest on earth!

This place is unbelievable, educational and fun. Be sure to bring your kids. The ride there is just as fun, all will enjoy. Not expensive at all. One of Tehachapi's attractions. You will learn about the great birds you didn't know at all. A pure nature trip.

It's OK - not good or great. Some interesting trivia about ostriches provided by tour guide. Can't complain about $4 per person but I wouldn't drive a great distance to get here. Fine if you're close by. FYI to those who read review mentioning "highlight of trip was photo" of child "riding an ostrich". No one gets to ride an... More

We had a private tour with owner Joel who was very pleasant & informative. It was fun 'meeting' Ralph the ostrich featured in Fear Factor show & music video. They offered a small gift shop; tours are $4 pp. Was interesting. Love the ostrich oil & its healing properties.

My husband and I took the tour of the Ostrich Ranch. The guide was interesting and at the end we bought a really great feather duster that we use all of the time!

I found the Indian Ranch Ostrich Ranch very interesting. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the birds and it is all done with their welfare in mind. Would definitely recommend a visit.
