In the heart of the Klein Karoo on the border of the Garden Route, lies the town Oudtshoorn that is best known for the spectacular Cango Caves that stretches deep into the Swartberg Mountains. Oudtshoorn is also known for its ostrich feather industry and often referred to as the Ostrich Capital of the world. Safari Ostrich Farm is a working ostrich farm and is the home to the beautiful and rare White Ostrich. It is also the first tourist farm in South Africa where the Kenyan Red & Zimbabwe Blue Ostriches as well as the local South African breed can be seen.
Safari Ostrich Farm offers an unforgettable experience with Ostrich Farm Tractor Tours that departs on the hour from 08:00 – 16:00.
