Granja de Avestruces, Villa de Leyva

3.6
#6 of 9 in Parks in Boyaca Department
Visit Granja de Avestruces to see the largest ostrich farm in the country. Meet these leggy birds on this family-friendly free-range farm, where other residents include llamas, goats, and horses. Kids can enjoy feeding the animals and burning off some energy on the playground. The ostriches have an organic diet, and the onsite restaurant serves up their eggs as well as their meat (if the thought turns your stomach, just stick with the farm).

  • I think that they let them starve and give it the little meat remaining in fillet for visitors of the restaurant. The food to be his specialty ostrich and Buffalo don't know them prepare. The food has no seasoning or salt. The only thing salvageable is the restaurant.

  • We went with our 9-year-old son, and make the full trip. It was very rewarding to be able to share with ostriches and farm animals. They are very organized and there is guide that leads the tour. Very specially recommended for the most small.

  • Buen recorrido, experiencia interactiva con Avestruces
  • The experience on the farm with regard to learn about animals, ostriches and other species that is nice and didactic. Too bad restaurant service which are wasting its potential. They have a very poor service, lack of knowledge by people serving there on how to provide the meat of ostrich and Buffalo that are the dishes that represent the farm, no presentation of the dishes, in terms of cooking of the meat not even ask which. The restaurant is managed as a road crossing restaurant, which does not sympathize with the prices on the menu offering. Therefore after the joy and good impression of travel, is the sinsabor of your lousy restaurant

  • Since starting the entry to the site, is a little expensive separate charge parking lot. How second travel is very short and little profitable and at the end we invite you to the restaurant service is very poor... I had to wait a lot of time for the preparation of the dishes and became crude and poorly seasoned. Not recommended

  • It is cool to see the ostriches and the chance to interact with them, as well as seeing the other animals. However it seems a bit short travel to the value of the input (15000).
