I will be staying in Cape Town. Is there a guided tour from Cape Town to the Safari Ostrich Show Farm from Cape Town, perhaps a two day tour from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn? Do you have ostrich shows like a race or something?

Good day, for the daily tour, from what age do you charge for a child? Other places I have seen charge from 6 years. Are you guys the same?

Answer
Response from Billy E | Property representative |
Good Day , our definition of a child is : 4 years to 14 years of age. 3 years (toddlers) and younger are free of charge but we charge children's rate for the guided tour if the person is 4 to 14 years old.
