The West Coast Ostrich Ranch


For many years the West Coast Ostrich Show Ranch has been offering a unique experience to visitors of the Western Cape. Situated only twenty minutes from Cape Town's Waterfront, the Kanigowski family have built up a very popular tourist destination encompassing informative tours with a high quality, great value leather and curio shops and an ostrich meat orientated restaurant. The business is family owned and run, with Gavin and his son, Pawel, on hand to greet visitors. The facilities we offer increase each year, allowing us to welcome more and more tourists, while still offering a friendly professional atmosphere. The farm nestles on the sea facing slopes of the Durbanville hills, which offer magnificent views of Table Mountain and the Hottentots Holland Mountains, an area steeped in local history.


History reveals that ostrich chicks were traded by the original Khoi inhabitants with the Dutch Settlers in 1652 and exported from Cape Town to Batavia (now Indonesia) in 1656. There were also exports to India and the Emperor of Japan in 1658.

The first documented ostrich farm was established in the centre of Cape Town in 1679. The Westcoast Ostrich Ranch has pioneered the revival of ostrich farming in the shadow of Table Mountain (Hoerikwagga)
