Seeing and feeding giraffes upclose was a great experience, but very uninformative and only lasted two minutes. As the girl was not interested at all and did not give any information, she left after two minutes 'hope you enjoyed it'. I would rather pay more...More

Bottle fed a giraffe here, that was so amazing. Also great to see the ostriches and they gave us a lot of information about them! Great spot and not too expensive

We stopped by Chandelier on our way to the airport. It's a 'show farm' so doesn't have very many ostrich birds (I counted maybe 10 birds) although it did also have a young giraffe and a somewhat aggressive emu! The tours were flexible which worked...More

While there are many ostrich farms in this area, this one is special. Not very large, but also not so commercial. Good value too! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, but most of all, we got to interact with the ostriches rather than just drive...More
