The tour takes about 90 minutes. There's plenty to see and do, from feeding ostriches by hand, viewing the incubators, standing on an egg at the nest (they're hardly ever bad), seeing how they make feather boas and other feather products, sitting, riding an ostrich (your own risk), to watching the ostrich races.
Be aware that ostriches are dangerous birds, especially their kick. Their beaks are of course also dangerous, so keep a hold on your children.
You may want to contact them ahead of time if you want to arrange lunch featuring ostrich steaks. There is also a curio shop selling a number of ostrich by-products from leather, feathers, and eggs.
