Ostriches have incredibly elastic necks so they can swallow stones. Ricardo is demonstrating this at Safari Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn by pulling forward the gullet of Sakkie, the kissable flightless wonder bird. Eating stones helps them digest their food which is mostly lucern pellets but can sometimes include interesting items like nuts, bolts and pieces of plastic.
Ostriches are truly fascinating creatures!
I am a tourist guide and tour operator in Cape Town, the most beautiful city in the world.
Cape Town is about more than the beauty. It is a lot about the people who have the biggest smiles and a genuine warm and inviting vibe. Cape Town also has a rich culture, an amalgam of the many settlers and inhabitants from Africa, Asia and Europe.
The story of our recent history, from apartheid to reconciliation and freedom is a moving story which I love to tell. I was lucky enough to be a journalist during the years of our transformation and witnessed the opening up of this country.
Join me on a tour and you will hear lots about this joyous and exciting place.
