The guided tour includes a fun ride on one of our tractors through a huge ostrich breeding camp with 18 adult breeding birds around you - a truly unique experience in itself.

If you have time enough, than go to Safari Ostrich Show Farm. But if you are in hurry, don't go there. It was really fun, but it's nothing spectacular. Really good for children.
