Lots of fun and informative. Our guide CJ was great and answered all my (many) questions with a smile. The tractor ride was fun going through the camps. Got to feed the ostriches and stand on eggs. Would definitely recommend it.

We enjoyed the Safari Ostrich Farm a lot. While driving through the different groups of ostriches, the guide gives you information about these animals. The shop was also really nice.
