Very nice place to visit. We did the guide tour when they should us the howl farm and let us hold and pick up the baby ostrich ,and let us feed the big Ostrich out of your hand. Ostrich is very well looked after and well fed. They also have a big shop you can buy feathers dusters and ostrich skin from and even ostrich eggs. I will visit the farm again.
Wasn't sure about visiting this place as l thought it would be boring, but one of our party was very keen so l went along. lt was excellent the guide very informative we handled the three week old Ostriches fed the adults, and I rode on the back of one.
