This was a fun hour with a knowledgeable guide.

The tractor pulled train was helpful especially given it had rained the day before.

Got very close to the birds

We came here to see the ostriches and had a lot of fun. Some of the birds were very curious and kept sticking their heads inside the safari trailer where we were sitting as it was being pulled by the tractor. I got to feed the birds, which was pretty cool. You have to hold on tight to the container and bring your sunglasses to protect your eyes not only from the sun, but also from the flying feed as they are very messy feeders. Some do like to peck as they get excited during feeding time. You may get a bruise or two, so feed at your own risk! Overall it was a lot of fun to see the birds and learn a bit about them, although telling tourists that ostriches run faster than cheetahs is simply not true. They run very fast, but cannot outrun a cheetah. Nothing can. In addition to the ostriches, there were a few emus to see as well. The gift shop was a nice stop for all things ostrich, and had a pretty good selection of decorated ostrich eggs. Please note that ostrich riding is no longer practiced.

We visited with a group as part of a tour with Rovos rail. It is interesting to see the various kinds of ostrich. There is a shop where many products derived from ostrich are sold. The products are quite expensive but very good quality.

Travelling with two clients from Germany who wanted the Ostrich experience, we had a nice tour with one of the guides who spoke German. His knowledge was very good and I am sure with more training his pronounciation will be fantastic in a few weeks

Food was great and the safari was awesome. The food was prepared in Indian cuisine for us by the family here and it was great. The ostrich farm was great to watch as it was my 1st time to see ostrich .

Wonderful ostrich farm with tours to see adult ostriches, and baby ostriches. You get to feed the ostriches too! Family has come here many times before it is always enjoyable!

We stopped to only look in the shop but decided to do the tour as well. Glad we did. Very informative and loved feeding the birds. Nice little cafe as well after your tour. Also treated myself to a bag. Staff helpful and explained I could claim tax back at the airport. Which made it even cheaper.

We arrive early and we we stopped were great very friendly and show us were to go, we order ice coffee, the best that we ever have. We enjoy the tractor and feeding the ostriches was fun just feel the tractor ride was very short. But enjoy and will recommend to anyone.

A great way to get up close to the ostriches. A simple easy tour that is really informative and friendly. The cafe at the end is very comprehensive so you can easily have a good lunch and enjoy the tour.
