The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Sights

Cango Ostrich Farm

  • Farm/Ranch

Fodor's Review

Cango Ostrich Farm is probably the least commercialized of the ostrich show farms. Guides explain the bird's extraordinary social and physical characteristics, and there are lots of interactive opportunities, including feeding and petting the ostriches and posing on one for a photograph. People who weigh less than 75 kilograms (165 pounds) are permitted to ride the ostriches. Some people don't like this practice, but the farm complies with strict regulations, meaning that

you can ride for no longer than 30 seconds, although generally it's hard to stay on for longer than that in any event. The farm is conveniently located en route to the Cango Caves from town. From September to February, you may see babies hatching.
