I've always dreamed of riding an ostrich and seeing them up close! The Maasai OStrich Resort is a bit off the beaten path (about a 45 min drive from the city). But it is SO WORTH the visit!! For ~$5 USD, you can ride an ostrich or take a tour of the farms. I learned so much about the birds... More

It is around 1.00-1.5 hours drive from Nairobi. They only breed Ostriches- we were allowed to hold an egg and feed the young ones- up to 7 months old, as it is a mating/ breeding season for them, the older ones are quite aggressive. None the less, we were able to take really good pictures of the birds. The guide... More

We drive here from Karen on the outskirts of Nairobi. The Sat nav map was wrong. It took us over 2 hours and although it's ok there if you've seen ostrich on safari then this is nothing special. There is an option to ride an ostrich (and eat one) we did neither. There were no babies in July when we... More

Ignore the pin on the map that shows it close to Langata Road. It is on Namanga Road, off of Mombasa Road. We vainly went to the Langata Road area per the map - basically it's just wrong. Also, we couldn't connect with the resort by phone. Once we got there, it was great.

Be aware that the road leading to this place is very rough and bumpy. The place itself is a resort and very nicely kept. We did not try the food and were there just to see the ostriches. Our guide was very good and all the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our guide took us around the park and... More

Close to Nairobi. The food was okay, presentation and layout when we had the meal was not very good. Bathrooms need an extra eye. That said, the ostriches were very delightful, and my children loved the place. The play ground was adequate as was the swimming pool. It gets chilly at night, you might want to carry a sweater!!

We went as a family for a day out. The place is one hours drive from Nairobi, roads are generally good except the last 7km is graded murram but it is passable even with a small car. The place has a nice serene environment with a pool. The food is good especially the ostrich meat which is a delicacy and... More
