We were very pleased with our recent tour of Safari Ostrich Farm. The staff there was friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to see a variety of ostriches, learn about their characteristics, and touch them. Our daughter was even able to ride one. The best part is the price of admission made it affordable for families.

I have visited Safari Ostrich Show Farm a few times in order to gather so material and footage for a project. Not only did I find the tours interesting and got to see many different kinds of ostriches, but I was also astound by the way the staff and management treated me.

The staff in general was very helpful and friendly at all times. But it was the management who obviously took the time to greet & chat to guests that that amazed me. They were tentative and accommodating every single time.

They serve a lunch every day that will suit anyone as they cater very widely. There was some Indian people having a curry dish but most people seemed to have the ostrich steak. I think they call this the "farmers lunch". The meat tasted amazing. It was soft and tasty and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Thumbs up for a great informative tour and an amazing meal afterwards! I will be back to visit them again!

You first get to learn about ostriches and farming them then you get to walk around the farm and see them. You then get to race them around and the day ends with a professional race. I was too heavy (over 165 pounds) but my wife did it and I was wonderful. Highly reccomended.
