Nowhere else has the ostrich been more important than in the Klein Karoo. Starting from a fledgling industry in the 1870's, Oudtshoorn soon became the ostrich capital of the world.

It is understandable that Chandelier, the closest ostrich show farm to Oudtshoorn (7 km) and George (48km), played an important role in the development of the ostrich industry more than 130 years ago.

The history of Chandelier, closely linked to the history of the Klein Karoo and the development of the ostrich industry in South Africa, lies enclosed in the old graveyard on the farm. No wonder that guests demanded that the ostrich tour on Chandelier should start right at the graveyard.

Chandelier Game Lodge & Ostrich Show Farm is the only ostrich show farm in South Africa where guests can stay in luxury en suite tented chalets within walking distance from these amazing birds. Guests are invited to participate in the daily activities on the working ostrich show farm, like feather clipping etc. Ostrich riding is also available for the brave, while the professional jockeys at Chandelier compete in the famous Chandelier ostrich race.

Guides are multi-lingual and tours are conducted in five languages, if arranged in advance.
