“Informative & Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The guide was really informative and fun. It was also nice to be able to touch or ride the ostriches. It doesn't take long to stop off and worth dropping in.

If you're looking for a places to come with small kids this may not be it but if you're interested in Ostriches and would like to get closer to them then worth stopping.

“Much fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Had a fantastic time. The guide was very informative, she was able to answer all our questions. Great to be able to get so close and touch the ostriches. It was great to watch my 83yr old father ride an ostrich.

“Hunt lived up to expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fate led us to Chandelier! My American boyfriend was looking to experience hunting in South Africa, and my friend who was arranging the hunt had to back out at the last minute, passing us on to another of his friends. Alan set up the hunt at Chandelier, and what an amazing experience. I had the pleasure of spending much of the day in the pickup (bakkie) with Gerrie, the owner of the farm, who had me in stitches much of the time. My boyfriend got lucky and shot a Kudu, and Alan shot his Eland and Rooibok. What an awesome day, and the prices were not hateful. Would love to go back and maybe stay overnight next time.

“What an Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Never knew there was so much information on the Ostrich. It was a very "hands on" experience. My daughter was able to ride an Ostrich which she throughly enjoyed. The guide was very informative their is absolutely nothing negative to say about this experience. Hope everyone has as good an experience as we had.
