Absolutely loved it. The ranger who showed us round was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to feed the ostriches by hand and he was happy to answer our questions etc. We met Tom Thumb who is the worlds smallest Ostrich and we then had the opportunity to sit on the adult ostriches for photos. They also have a... More

An enjoyable visit with a good guide taking you through some interesting exhibits about ostriches. You can feed some ostriches, touch them and finally sit on the back of one for picture taking.

Invited for lunch by a friend we first did the tour which was very interesting and educational. Look out also for the crocodiles and chetahs! Ostrich fillet was cooked to perfection and served with simple vegetables. Tried the "craft" gin & tonic from the micro brewery on site, very good. The shop has a good selection of quality ostrich and... More

Very touristy place but has potential if they offered a " locals are lekker " special on the menu like some tourist spots do elsewhere ... good food ... average prices ... guided tour a little expensive for a local person

The Ostrich Ranch is about 40 minutes from Cape Town on good roads. Amongst the hills with a good view of the distant Table Mountain one is truly in the country. Our interest was to have a lunchtime outing with friends. We started with beer samples from the local artisinal brewery. For lunch we settled on the 3 course menu... More
