This unique experience will allow you the chance to take photos of the ostriches around you in this breeding camp. Other highlights of the tour include the chance to stand on ostrich eggs as well as the opportunity to feed them.
Safari Ostrich Show Farm is the first farm in South Africa where the Kenyan Red and Zimbabwe Blue Ostriches as well as the local South African breed can be viewed. We will also show you the second biggest bird in the world after the ostrich, namely the Emu from Australia and our rare White Ostriches.
