"visit the first rate Highgate..." South Africa Favorite Tip by Krystynn

South Africa General: 284 reviews and 229 photos


Favorite thing: visit the first rate <u><b>Highgate Ostrich Farm</b></u>, just one of the many ostrich farms located here in <b>Oudtshoorn, Garden Route</b>.

<i>Do you know that there are over 400 ostrich farms here in Oudtshoorn??</i> Gee, I didn't know about it until NOW! <i>Sigh</i>... No wonder it is called the <i>Ostrich Capital of the World!</i>

Fondest memory: You MUST buy some of these lovely handpainted ostrich eggs to keep as souvenirs! I managed to buy a lovely ostrich egg with a map of the African continent painted on it. It was splendid and I BARGAINED it down to steal! I knew it was a good buy when my friends back home offered to pay me premium prices for that egg....

<i>Hm</i>...maybe I should start thinking of auctioning this rare egg off at ebay.com :-) <i>Just a thought</i>....
