In South Africa You Can Ride On An Ostrich
Six kilometers from the South African town of Oudshoorn is one of the largest ostrich farms in the world under the name of Safari Ostrich Show Farm. It offers tourists an unusual activity - ostrich Rodeo.
On a farm with an area of 1,500 hectares is home to around 150 birds of different ages in conditions as close to natural. During the hour tour, visitors will talk about the origins, anatomy and habits of ostriches and show an incubator to raise Chicks. Everyone will be able to feed the birds from your hands and to practice hatching eggs.
The highlight of the excursion, of course, a trip to the ostrich, to which tourists are only allowed weight not exceeding 70 kg. After a short briefing, visitors are provided with uniforms and offer to ride the bird. The ostrich didn't resist, his head throw a piece of cloth and then withdraw, and he starts to run. It is very important to hold fast to him by the wings and not by the neck - it only scares him and makes him trotting faster. The most agile rider manages to stay on the ostrich 5-10 minutes, and then the farm workers to help them stop the bird.
After the Rodeo you can rest, drinking coffee in a local restaurant, and visit the gift shop, which sells a painted ostrich eggs and, unfortunately, products made from ostrich leather.
Farm tours are held daily from 8:00 to 16:00. The cost is 80 South African Rand ($8) for adults and 40 South African Rand ($4) for children up to 16 years.
