We visited the ostrich farm in Feb 2017 after visiting a few years ago. Our children enjoyed it but we found it to be very commercialised and felt that we were not given the time to look around after the actual tour.

The staff are rude and dismissive. Tours groups treated well, individuals dismissed. VERY expensive. Bought the same item a shop in town for third of the price. Not recommended for South African tourism, unless in a group tour,

This was really value for money if you are an animal lover. Very hands on with animals and also very informative and you can also climb on the back of one.

The brochure makes it look so good. But ho what a letdown. Upon arrival you are directed into the shop to buy a ticket. No pricing or information was apparent you have to ask for information. 130R for the tractor tour of the farm. Taken first into a room you are shown an Ostrich skin, bones and a small incubator...

Our visit was absolutely worth it, and extreme good value for money. Jaun, our guide, was as competent a tour guide as we have had anywhere. Funny, eloquent and also painted a realistic picture of what the purpose and vision of the farm is. He was always open for questions and gave additional insights were applicable. We were pleasantly surprised... More

This ostrich farm is much like all the others in the Oudtshoorn area. But our guide, John, seemed to be particularly bored, just reeling off his scripts and hushing everyone along. Seemed more eager to sit in the shade with his pals than trying to engage us guests.

During our visit here we learned much about the life of the ostrich, as well as the interesting history of the ranch and its founding family.
