“our own ostriches would be jealous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

we arrived here after a quick jaunt to cape point and in need of lunch. The show ostriches are kept in beautifully maintained pens, a far cry from our own wild ostriches. The lunch was great, selection of ostrich cold meats. Our hostess was fantastic even though she had a coach load on their way in. A lovely hour spent. How I managed to leave without buying a new ostrich hand bag i will never know. If you are at cape point this is a must.

“An excellent impromptu lunch stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stopped here for an impromptu lunch and it was one of the best meals we had on our visit to South Africa.

The owner and our hostess (Nancy) was extremely friendly and accommodating. She sensed that we didn't particular want to sit inside with a coach load of tourists, so offered us some seating in the shade outside. It was like having lunch in our own private garden. Nancy took the time to sit with us and provide some guidance on where to go, as well as some advice on the local wildlife (baboons)!

The food prices were reasonable and Nancy was happy to have something made especially for my husband who was suffering after an upset stomach overnight.

I would definitely return to have lunch here again.

“Totally ostrich place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

It is a home to many beautiful ostriches and a legendary smoke loving Elan. It is a nice place to stop and rest or grab a bite on the way to the Cape of Good Hope.. The most interesting is the store and the museum on premises. Somewhat expensive but certainly a place to buy nice souvenirs. Ostrich bags, suitcases, shoes from ostrich skin, feathers for the Rio style carnival, artistically adorned ostrich eggs etc. You will enjoy this short interesting stop.

“Nice gift shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

On a tour of the Cape area we stopped at the Ostrich Farm, looked at the birds and visited the gift shop. Very good selection of painted ostrich eggs and leather goods. Staff were friendly and helpful, and we found some very nice gift items to take home, a worthwhile stop on our tour.
