“Great Ostrich experience and education”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was a graet learning experience. Good for a bad weather day as alternative when the mountain is closed.

“Great start to Cape Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

This ostrich ranch was one of the most pleasantly surprising experiences of my 2 week trip to Cape Town. Our tour guide, Hermann, was extremely knowledgeable about everything that has to do with ostriches and relayed the information in an interesting and humorous way. We saw the skeleton of an ostrich as well as many of the inside body parts. When I first saw these parts, I was worried I’d be too squeamish but our guide was just so interesting and offered great information about them so all I felt was fascination. After a tour of the museum, we were taken outside to see and feed a bunch of ostriches. We fed some that were behind a fence, but also one that was just roaming around freely. Some ranches may let you ride an ostrich but those ones tend to be extremely expensive. Here, we were able to sit on one and pet it which was already included in the very low entrance fee. Overall we had an exceptional time and a large part of it was because of our tour guide. Thank you so much! You guys started my trip off in the best way possible.

“Good fun and educational”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

R65pp (March 2012) gets you a tour of the facility with a friendly guide including ostriches in various stages of growth from chicks to adult, a small museum to ostrichness, a croc enclosure, the world's smallest full-grown ostrich. You can even sit on one if you like, and inevitably stand on some eggs. There's a shop with an extensive range of ex-ostrich products, and a restaurant/bar (which we didn't sample). All good value and very much worth a visit.
