Accommodation near Westcoast Ostrich Show Ranch

This fascinating and novel attraction is not an especially well-known one, and being situated just outside Cape Town, often gets overlooked for flashier sights like Table Mountain and the Winelands, however, it is a very worthy day trip in its own right, combining the best tourism ingredients: shopping, stunning views and the opportunity to learn something new, which come together in a lovely experience.

The ranch is a working ostrich farm located in Philadelphia, a farming region up the West Coast, a few kilometres outside of Cape Town. It lies just off the N7 highway, making it simple to find and easily accessible.

There are various aspects which make up the West Coast Ostrich Show Ranch, namely the leather and egg factories, the breeding programme, the curio shop, the leather and egg factory shop, a restaurant and a delightful tea garden. The star of the show for many though, is the tours which are offered on a regular basis.

These tours take you through the factory, allowing visitors to see how the leather is treated and the steps required to assemble the various items which are made from it. You will also visit the egg factory and the incubation area where the eggs are kept warm before they hatch, a visit to the chick nursery is also on the itinerary and finally the tour takes guests out to check out the adult ostriches and even provides the chance to sit on one, with the view of the iconic Table Mountain in the background.

After you complete your tour and have your shopping done, you can settle into the restaurant, which is housed in a lovely Cape Dutch-style building, for a leisurely meal.

Durbanville Reviews

Durbanville was a lovely area of Cape Town. It was very close and provided easy access to the airport and city centre. There were lots of restaurants and shops in the area. We would definitely stay in the area again.
- Eloise Howe

Durbanville, peaceful, lovely village environment. Centrally located to the Durbanville Wine route.
- Trevor Dudley

Love the area, we visited for a conference.
- Andrew Willington

Clean well maintained and nice
- Bridget Rawlins

The area is lovely and relaxing. You need own transport to go around as it is about 22km away from Waterfront and Cape town Cbd. Lovely area to enjoy vacation
