Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We went with a tour guide to the farm and then did the guided tour by the farms guides, we had an amazing short coloured lady do our tour, she was very cute and funny , we got to touch the ostriches , got hugs and massages from them ! Was amazing !!!! Some of us even got to ride. Them and the kids that where to young to ride got to sit on the ostrich for a photo ! Truly special !!!

“Not worth a visit.”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Very disappointing as we thought that this was a genuine ostrich farm, too late we realised that this was purely a tourist show facility and that very few birds were actually kept on the 'farm'. The guide in his introduction insisted that the male ostrich changed sex and laid the eggs, only later admitted that he had been joking! The birds in the riding pen were agitated and did not appreciate being blindfolded and pushed into a trap to allow someone to mount. The sight of one of the guides riding the bird was one I wish to forget. The tour was hurried as another group was following ours.

“Rode an ostrich!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had a great visit. The guide was very informative and also made allot of jokes. We rode the ostrich, got an ostrich hug and an ostrich neck massage all from ostriches :-) We also stood on ostrich eggs, we were warned if you brake a rotten ostrich egg your feet will stink for weeks. It was a great day.

“Try to ride an ostrich”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

I have been on the back of a horse, camel, elephant, turtle, and now ostrich.The farm is situated on the famous Garden Route and should not be overlooked. You will have a chance to learn about this giant birds, feed them, try an omelet, prepared in the farm's restaurant and f you dare - try to ride an ostrich. Unforgettable experience, highly recommended.
