Hear From Others

The informative uncle is so friendly and humourous. As he tours us around, he shares with us how adorable these giant birds can be and keep saying they are actually not that scary (but please do not agitate them on purpose) but rather cutely “stupid”, as he rubs the head of one of the ostriches fondly- that time, they really seems appealing as a tame pet, I mean a hugeeeee………pet! Lolz

There are ostrich satay, ostrich burger, ostrich omelette, ostrich soup, ostrich bakuteh, ostrich teppanyaki at the restaurant in the farm. So much they offer.


There were two very tame ostriches whom the farmers have kept for a long time and they were therefore the only privileged ones who were allowed to roam freely. Our guide encouraged us to touch one of them and he obediently allowed us to. What a privilege!
