We had a great experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our guide on the tractor tour was charismatic and well spoken. Shop is well stocked with lots of high quality items. Feeding the ostriches was also a nice treat for all of us, kids and adults. We highly advice this farm to anyone.

A must do when in Oudtshoorn
Dec 2020
My son was over the moon when I told him we will be visiting the ostrich farm and adding that we will be doing the safari on a wagon behind a tractor very much added to his excitement. The farm is easy to find and the tours well organized. Everything is clean and explained in the confirmation booking which is great and avoids a load of further questions. The tour is reasonably priced and great value for money. The guide that took us around was friendly and had a great personality with a wealthy knowledge of all the aspects of the tours, the farm, and the history of the farm. She knew all the statistics of the industry and even when questioned she could answer quickly and efficiently. The tour was great and the duration was perfect. Feeding the ostriches can be a bit overwhelming for some but keep the young ones in place and they remain pretty much in place for the whole journey. Great shop as well where products can be purchased, with a big range available to pick from. All and all a great experience.

I always learn something new
Dec 2020 • Family
I was so shocked at how quiet it was. Usually there are so many people but I suppose that is what covid does. The tractor ride was fantastic. Our guide was informative, patient and enthusiastic. My kids loved it although they have done it many times before. We also had lunch there. The ostrich was good but not excellent. The highlight of lunch was the new goodies I got to try. Spekboom chutney and mustard with apricot sauce. The chutney was ok but we loved the mustard. It went so well with the ostrich. The tractor ride was free for the kids and they each got a little gift. Covid might be killing the tourism which this place needs. However, the real culprit of this dying industry, is the government. They have really given the farmers a rough deal.

I have visited the Safari Ostrich farm many times but every time I am in Oudtshoorn I always visit these beautiful and interesting birds. I love ostriches and their way of survival.
