    Visit to ostrich farm with tour group
    Went to visit with my tour group. It is a good experience to get closer to ostrich, some of them roam around, can also buy food to feed them. It is not easy to own a business like that. Should give the owner some support. Hopefully it can have some renovation to make the place more attractive.

    Come close to the big bird!
    You will get a short briefing before the start of the tour. Jovial guy - enjoyed chatting with him. You can get close to the ostriches and feed them. Can try the Ostrich Omelette. The place needs a bit of upgrading.

    Help Sustain the Ostrich Farm
    The farm was not as big as I expected, but for a RM25 fee, it was adequate (I consider the fees worth it to keep the farm operating). I sensed that the farm is still trying to get back on its feet after suffering from loss due to COVID-19. The birds were separated according to age groups, and we were able to go around feeding and petting the birds. I would say that with more visitors coming, the farm would be able to sustain its operation.

Very enjoyable and educational trip to the ostrich farm! Some well trained ostriches are roaming freely in the farm so we could all take pictures and feed them with corn and vegetables! However, please DO NOT wear any jewellery like earrings, necklace and bracelet as they are attracted to the shiny items and then they will peck! The trainer told us that one ostrich pecked at one visitor’s earring! The ostrich also pecked at my hand because I was wearing a bracelet but luckily no injury! Ouch! Overall very fun and good experience!

13/4/2021 public holiday for Malaysia in weekday. Brought my kids and wife came to Desaru for day trip. Due to CMCO public beach is closed and we change plan to visit this ostrich farm instead. After 20mins drive, reached here and found out it's closed. Truly disappointed that this farm was closed in public holiday

Went there last weekend for a visit, but got to understand that this farm is now closed. Such a disappointment for the kids as it does not seem to be updated anywhere online that it is currently closed. Hope it reopens soon, please do be aware that this farm is currently closed i guess till further notice.

Visited with my family and we had a great time. You can feed the ostriches by purchasing some vegetables.

There are a couple of free range ostrich that walked about freely. It was pretty awesome to be able to get up close with them.

Had the ostrich egg omelette which was yummy! We tried the plain one and the one with cheese. Just go for the plain ones. The cheese one wasn't that great.

the entrance ticket is RM20 for adults. the RM20 price was labelled over the RM12 pricing on the ticket.

we went during a rainy season, so it was raining when we visited. you can still explore the place with an umbrella. Some area is sheltered and you can get up close with the ostriches. You can also buy some plants at the entrance to feed the ostriches.

the visit will start with a little lecture about ostriches etc and it will be free and easy.

however, most of the ostriches seem to look like they are in bad shape. not too sure if it is because of the rain or otherwise. I will just let the photos speak for itself.

We were a group of 7 (2 families), and after having read the reviews about the farm, we decided to go as we had children with and it was too short a weekend vacation to do anything big.

If you go during the monsoon season, like we did, then perhaps it is better to wear footwear which you don't mind getting dirty in, as the place was very wet and muddy and as with all places where many animals are kept, it does smell like a zoo. So, if you do not like wet, muddy and smell, then you can strike this off your to-visit list.

The place is situated off a small turn by the roadside. Entry ticket prices are ok. Once you've bought the tickets you will sit down for a short briefing about the farm and some trivia about ostriches and animals in particular, which I feel any 10 year-old with an inquiring mind would already know. Don't be fussy about cleanliness of the place because this is basically a roadside farm. During the briefing itself you'll be asked if you want a once-in-a-lifetime experience of eating ostrich omelette, original or with cheese. If you do choose to try, payment is made on the spot and you'll be given a token later to claim your by-then cooked egg (not the whole egg though, come on, it's an ostrich egg!).

The ostrich feed costs 2 ringgit, so I guess you can feed as many ostriches as you like as much as you want. On that note, there are also live chickens for sale on the premises.After feeding the ostriches, we were given a demo on how the egg is broken. I guess you could really go for that if your'e into it but it's not a big deal. The egg that was broken that day when we visited was the same egg that they cooked for us.

They would also try to sell you some facial stuff made from.....ostrich stuff, with the same gimmicks that come with trying to sell facial stuff. You know what I mean. Fall for that if you want.

Overall, I guess you could go to the ostrich farm if you have kids with you, or if you're really dying to feed or have a photo op with an ostrich. Otherwise, giving this farm a miss is not a big deal. At all.
