We had a memorable stay with Carmen and Dario. Their hospitality and friendliness make them wonderful hosts and Dario's pride in his farm, the meals and the accommodation are obvious.

We only stayed one night, but we got to see a working ostrich farm, eat some great ostrich steaks and drink a few Windhoeks with a beautiful view of the Klein Karoo as backdrop.

I would definitely recommend the Straussen Nest to anyone wanting an authentic experience.

Their website is a bit hard to find, so I thought I'd add a link to it here: http://www.straussennest.net/

Thanks, Dario and Carmen, we had a great time.

We had a wonderful night with Carmen and Dario. Their farm is in the middle of nowhere. Some 15km down country lanes. The rooms are clean but quite basic/ordinary. However, Carmen and Dario are great. We had such a laugh travelling around the farm seeing the ostriches. And the breakfast was terrific in such a great setting. It's certainly different but was one of the highlights of our trip. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dario and Carmen Urbanski, your hosts. We have been living on an ostrich farm in South Africa since 1995. It all started during our first holiday in South Africa in 1993. We immediately fell in love with this beautiful country. We particularly fancied the surroundings of Oudtshoorn. ... more   less
