  • Very nice place to visit. We did the guide tour when they should us the howl farm and let us hold and pick up the baby ostrich ,and let us feed the big Ostrich out of your hand.

  • Had a great experience on the guided tour of the working farm. The guide was well informed and friendly. The restaurant on site serves a great variety of food and the outside coffee bar is a welcome oasis. Do visit and experience the oldest working ostrich farm in oudshoorn.
