Experience the world’s largest bird, the ostrich, which lays the largest egg, has the most beautiful feathers and eyes that make you want to fall in love and hug them.
We offer a variety of ostrich tours. Each tour has 2 parts – the main yard and the farmlands.
In the main yard, you will be shown different ostrich feathers, the incubators and how they work, gizzard stones, and you can feed the ostriches yourself!
The farmlands are where you will be shown the anatomy of an ostrich, and , for the brave, you may even get the chance to ride one!
The highlight of our tours is when we end off with a traditional ostrich race performed by our professional jockeys. You can take part in our ostrich derby as a spectator along the longest Ostrich race track in the world !
Conclude your tour with a traditional ostrich meal. Meals are served in The Pepper Tree Restaurant located in our historic homestead, with magnificent views of the Klein Karoo valley and picturesque Swartberg Mountains. Our world famous Highgate Choir entertains visitors whilst they enjoy their meals accompanied by local wines.
We are open 364 days! We are only closed on Christmas Day, so you have 364 days to enjoy our hospitality and fine food.
