About Rietfontein Ostrich Palace

Welcome to Rietfontein Ostrich Palace which is a working ostrich farm situated between Calitzdorp and Oudtshoorn on the Route 62 – the longest wine route in South Africa. It is the oldest working ostrich farm in the Cape Colony and was established by the Potgieter family in 1897. It boasts one of the most intriguing ostrich palaces dating back to the early 1900s.

Enjoy a scrumptious meal at our restaurant - we serve ostrich cuisine and local wine. Our accommodation comprises three units with six rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and equipped with all necessities. Experience a one-hour private ostrich farm tour daily, or the historical side of Rietfontein Ostrich Palace and the Feather Boom Era.

                              Rietfontein is a jewel of the Karoo. The dinners and breakfasts are prepared with care and imagination. Their ostrich fillet is a must - even if you are staying somewhere else and treat yourself to a dinner in the restaurant.

                              Rietfontein Ostrich Palace is just wonderful, Elmare and Kobus are friendly hosts, the meal in the restaurant great!We had Emmas Cottage, where Senta Berger lived while working on the movie. Beautiful and nice cottage.In the morning Kobus took us into the field with ostriches. Wow! They are big. Rietfontein Ostrich Palace is an experience!
