Near Oudtshoorn at the Garden Route nr 62 we stayed in Chandelier luxury safari tent. There is a big 3500 acre wild life park worth seeing. Very professional owner. Customer oriented staff. Good breakfast. Tents are super. Even wifi. This is a must to stay when you travel on route 62. Game drive can be arranged. Value for money. Safe... More

I recently brought a Family of Four Americans to this venue. The Reception lady was vague however the guide intervened and pointed out how to handle my query. The Giraffe Feeding was mild. Riding of the Ostriches was a really funny and great experience. There was no offer of an interpretive Ostrich farm workings.

The experience was more of being used and ripped off than experiencing a true working Ostrich farm experience. We thought one ostrich farm must be pretty much like another. There was a marked lack of ostriches (we probably saw about 25 odd birds - so not a large working farm) - and the guide was not particularly professional. We did... More

Of course this farm is not very authentic, but for a "show farm" it's really well done. The first animal we met was the Great Dane puppy Lo at the parking lot, really cute and friendly. At the reception you can choose between three different options, with or without a guide, with ostrich riding or without. We picked the tour... More

This was the first place we saw and luckily we stopped.

We found this by accident and how lucky we were. Mark made the tour so interesting by explaining all about Ostriches in a way that was informative but also hilarious. We even rode an Ostrich which is not as crazy as it sounds as they were originally used as transport when introduced. There were also two very tame giraffes that... More

Another care center for animals. The almost tame animals are so used to human touch that they almost pose for photographs. We were lucky to sight a Secretary bird and the Martian eagle

It deserves a stop and a couple of Hours spent here, with Mark and his team introducing you to the life in a Real farm. Your kids will enjoy a lot!
