Very educational trips especially for school children and adults with little chance of visiting Africa. Situated close to the Desaru resorts and not too far from the Pengerang seafood restaurants

A short drive from Jb, worth the trip. The guide is very knowledgeable and passionate about ostrich, he also had many funny anecdotes to tell. Must try the ostrich steak and omelet, and get an ostrich egg light as souvenir.

Not too difficult to find after a 30minute drive from Lotus Desaru beach resort; take highway 91 which was a lot smoother, compared to highway 92 which had potholes and more traffic. The farm itself was quite small, but enough for an hour plus visit. The explanation was informative, but a little long. We were raring to go feed the... More

Farm: A lovely rustic farm holding the big birds in number of enclosures. Farm is well maintained by the friendly staffs. Farm entrance fee of MYR15 includes a short and brief educational tour. In less than 30 mins, you can complete the walk around in the farm. There are 2 big birds which roam freely in the visitor area. You... More

Since young, I have been taught ostriches are aggresive birds, and would peck and chase people. However the ostriches here are mostly tame, and a few of them are even left outside the pens to wander around. You can take pictures with the ostriches, and pet/touch them. Just don't go near the male ostriches. The guides are very knowledgeable and... More

The drive up to Ostrich Farm was about an extra 30-40 minutes from where the roundabout/resorts are. Watch for signages! We almost missed it thinking the place was close. Once you have located the place, drive in to the kampung area. We were greeted warmly by the family/staff at the Farm. We were briefed on the ostrich egg, and then... More

They will explain how the ostrich helps from its egg, feather, meat, skin and also the... More

Not a very big commercial farm, has about 50 ostriches, from tiny hatchings to huge birds. First welcomed by a little boy to view the hatchings, then an old uncle took us around and explained to us about the ostriches. You can take photos with the ostriches walking around, and even handfeed them. An eye opener as most people think... More
