Our guide was very slick and kept this tour on track and to the point. Full of facts with wonderful humour he led us around this great park for an hour. We fed the birds, rode on them if we wished, stood on the eggs, had a neck massage and just looked Excellent visit

We chose this ostrich Farm as its location fitted in well with our plans for the day. In retrospect, perhaps a bigger farm would have been better. That said, we had an informative guide and learnt quite a bit about how they are framed etc. When we moved outside to see the animals, the first ostrich seemed very contented and... More

The two of us arrived just when a bus load of tourists pulled in, so we were expecting the farm to group us with them within the same tour. However, they devoted one guide to bring us through the farm and we managed to feed and ride an ostrich! The guide explained that the ostriches there were for show, hence... More

We were met by a great guide who taught us all about ostriches. He was very knowledgeable and we all learned a lot. We all fed the ostrich and got pictures with her. We were all able to sit on the ostrich and my son and I were able to ride the ostrich since we were under their weight limit.... More

The talk and information before seeing the birds was interesting and well done, by the guide, but it all felt too commercialised once outside. You were given the opportunity to sit on one for a photo, but the bird had a sack over its head. You could also ride one, as jockeys demonstrated. It would have been nicer to see... More

Didn't really know what to expect but it was a very interesting visit. An introductory talk, seeing the eggs in incubator, visiting the ostrich with a chance to ride one. Nice restaurant which served a local type of bread. Shop had ostrich and other gifts. A good stop off.

We had a fun hour or so being taken round the ostriches. There were lots of opportunities to interact with the birds depending on your level of comfort - feeding, 'kisses', riding! The guide was funny and kept the group entertained throughout.

Who knew there was so much to learn about ostriches? The birds are quite interesting creatures. We visited this establishment and it was interesting and we had a great tour guide. You are permitted to feed the ostrich, visit the incubator, and ride an ostrich if you desire. Our son, 6 yrs old, desired to get on a bird, but... More

We stopped off here on a tour of the local area. The area is famed for it's ostrich farms, so we thought we should visit one. It was early when we arrived so it was just my partner and I with the tour guide, who was really informative. He showed us around the farm and introduced us to some of... More
