The Cango Ostrich Farm does a good job of getting people through an informative, and entertaining tour efficiently. We learned a lot about ostriches in 45 min and we got a good laugh at trying to feed them, hug them and also the 'Ostrich massage' was pretty funny as well.

This was our first visit to South Africa and a Ostrich Farm. We found our tour guide to be knowledgeable and interesting. Some people in our group did ride the ostrich's which was hilarious to watch as was the ostrich massage! The whole visit was less that an hour.

Nice, small farm, with NO riding on the animals. Good explanation. We were with a group of 4 people. Duration: 40 minutes. Not too commercial, just a nice place to go to.

Our guide incorporated humour into the information and gave a very interesting overview; he also enabled our group to have highly entertaining contact with the ostriches. Hopefully my photos will be great. I’d highly recommend a visit and the circa 45 minute guided tour is suitable for all ages. Other folks we’ve met since, visited a different ostrich farm and...

As it was my daughter's first visit to an ostrich farm I really was hoping for it to be a special one. Unfortunately the guide was less than engaging (I don't think he even told us his name). Having said that, the ostrich hugs were very cute.
