It's true. Highgate is the world's oldest ostrich show farm. But it is a working farm too. So we don't do things just for show.

At Highgate we give you the real African farm experience. You will see how in practice a leading ostrich farm is managed and learn more about the world's largest living species of bird that is native to Africa.

During your 75 minute tour an expert guide will show you our modern breeding methods that produce 15000 ostrich chicks a year, how the largest eggs of any living bird species are incubated, and see the hatching room.
You will visit the feather room and experience the beauty of feathers that were such an irresistible attraction for the high society ladies of a bygone era and which led to the feather boom.
Sit on an ostrich is you like and you can feed them too.
You then take your seats around our picturesque race course which is also the longest in the region. Hold on to your hats as you witness daring jockeys racing one another on the backs of ostriches that have the fastest land speed of any bird species - around 70km/h (43mph).
We are also proud of our local wines and hand crafted beers which you can enjoy while the children play on our manicured lawns, clamber over the jungle-gym playground and enjoy a unique donkey cart ride.
Our earth policy Our policy at Highgate is sustainability of the earth's precious resources. Conservation is our priority and the motivation for supporting the H.O.P.E (Helping Our People & Environment) Foundation
(visit www.hopefoundation.co.za).
