Incredible, but true: in order to see a farm with real African ostriches you don't need to travel to Africa at all. An hour's drive from Tashkent, not far from the Tuyabuguz reservoir (also known as Tashsea), there is an ostrich farm. The owners say: “Everything started as a hobby when the whole family decided to buy five ostriches.” Now the farm has more than 40 ostriches and a huge number of other animals. During the trip, you will see ostriches of various ages, chickens, goats and many breeds of rabbits (some giant rabbits weigh up to 12 kg!). You will see an amazing ostrich egg, which can hold the weight up to 60 kilograms. You will have the opportunity to taste an ostrich egg omelet and ostrich meat.
Children will love the trip to the farm, because here they can hold and pat funny rabbits, help to look after the chicken house, and if you are lucky, find eggs in the clutch. The ostriches are much closer here than in the zoo, and you can even touch them.
The whole class or a group can also come here and get an additional discount.
