We did the Tractor Tour with our experienced and friendly tour guide Jonty who shared interesting information about the ostriches. It was great fun to see the people that was brave enough to ride on the ostriches! Some people had a chance to sit on an ostrich for a photo.

We did the 1 hour tour. Very friendly guides with lots of information to share. Guides were quite knowledgable. Had so much fun with the tractor drive especially when ostriches wanted to get a piece of the action! Well worth it. Loved it!

You won't need more than a couple of hours here, but this is very much worth the trip. Very information and very fun, these giant birds are highly interesting to learn about and intrigued about you visiting them. Very good guide and worth the visit for sure.

If you have time enough, than go to Safari Ostrich Show Farm. But if you are in hurry, don't go there. It was really fun, but it's nothing spectacular. Really good for children.

It takes about an hour and comprises a brief tractor tour of the Zimbabwean 'blue' ostriches, Kenyan 'red' and more aggressive ostriches, and the tall South African ostriches. It also includes a walk through of the incubators, a chance to stand on an egg... More

Well organised and great fun. We were late arriving and the owners couldn't have been more helpful re-organising our lunch to fit around the tour.

Out your guide CJ was knowledgeable and we had an amazing visit at this ostrich farm. Appreciated how well looked after the ostriches are and that there is no mishandling of these beautiful creatures. We learnt a lot about the ostriches and were made to feel very comfortable with the animals as well. CJ you rock!

It was a huge experience for the children but the guide could move a little slower through all the different stages.

We broke up our journey with a stop here. We had a very enjoyable 2 hours being guided around the farm and getting an appreciation of this animal. Special mention of our guide - she was knowledgeable and impressively spoke at least 4 languages. Highly recommend this as short lunch stop. Do not miss the restaurant / BBQ. I had... More

Our guide Beverly spoke excellent German and explained everything very well. It was a very interesting tour. The farm is very well kept and the ostriches in great shape. You can tell they are being well taken care of.
