The Many Uses of Ostrich in South Africa
When touring the Garden Route along South Africa’s southern coast I stopped at Oudtshoorn and visited the Safari Ostrich Show Farm. It was an unforgettable experience.
The arid countryside resembles the Australian outback. Instead of sheep there are innumerable ostriches roaming far into the distance. What a perfect farm animal for such a climate! Every part of the bird is used – leather, meat, feathers and oil, and at the nearby backpacker’s hostel, I had scrambled ostrich egg for breakfast!
