Overall Rating
Educational and interactive ostrich farms give you a unique opportunity to feed the largest bird in the world. Experience the magnificent ostrich and so much more in Curacao.

The tour ended at an ostrich farm that was pretty much a let-down. They had a handful of rough-looking ostriches, a tapir-looking animal, and some really mean geese. One bit me, but I’ve fought with geese before, so I won that round.

Visiting the ostrich farm was the highlight of our cruise! Its unique and interesting and we enjoyed our time with these unique animals. After we had some time to cross the famous floating bridge and walk around the downtown area.

General stop where you see a couple different types of Ostriches, and see them at different stages of their life...the little ones are so cute. You are given a jeep ride around and one stop you can feed them and take pictures. The last stop you can stand on an ostrich egg. Also check out some of the other animals on the farm, pigs, minature horses, iguanas, ducks, birds, and a few others too.

However, the highlight of Curacao was the Ostrich Farm excursion we booked through Princess. It was $50 per person for a 3-hour tour of the Ostrich Farm and some "art gallery" that makes cast statues of a "chichi" woman (total waste of time, IMO). BUT - the Ostrich Farm, oh it was glorious! They took us on a guided truck tour of the grounds and we learned a lot about ostriches, then got to feed some (photo op!) and stand on an ostrich egg. The baby ostriches were amazingly cute and they had some other animals on the land as well. They have a restaurant on the grounds, but we didn't have time to eat there, plus would feel bad about eating an ostrich after having fed them and seen their babies. The ride to the art gallery took maybe 25 minutes, during which the guide narrated the history of Curacao and some of the buildings, and we spent about 20 minutes at the art gallery and then drove to the Ostrich Farm, where we spent about an hour. The drive back took at least 45 minutes as we hit heavy traffic, but the guide gave us more interesting info on the island.
