This ostrich ranch was one of the most pleasantly surprising experiences of my 2 week trip to Cape Town. Our tour guide, Hermann, was extremely knowledgeable about everything that has to do with ostriches and relayed the information in an interesting and humorous way. We...More

I did not visit here, but passed it on our way and was able to stop and take pictures. Quite intresting, and just amazing to see all the ostrices in one place being taken care of. Africa really does care about their animals.
