|About these ratings|
Did you know that ostriches lay the largest eggs of any bird species? Or that they only have two toes per foot? You can learn all kinds of fascinating -- and trivial -- facts of this sort during a day at the Aruba Ostrich Farm in Oranjestad.
In addition to trivia, the farm's tour guides will educate you on the survival instincts and mannerisms of the ostriches and emus that live at the farm, plus you'll get a chance to interact with them up close and personal. Recent vacationers especially enjoyed feeding the large birds. The farm has a tasty on-site eatery, Savannah Lodge Bar & Restaurant, which even serves a few ostrich delicacies (in case you were wondering, ostrich is a red meat).
The Aruba Ostrich Farm is open daily, with an admission fee that some found pricey considering the tour length. Check out the farm's official website for more information on guided tours and fees, and make the most of your time in the Oranjestad area by visiting the nearby Baby Beach.
