Eco Farmhouse: Ostrich House
As you guys may remember, I took some time off in April and it was to take a short trip. I hadn’t traveled much recently and thought we could take a trip for my birthday. I have wanted to go to Eco Farmhouse for quite a while so we decided to go there. They offer multiple places to stay but we went to Eco Farmhouse: Ostrich House Kenya. And since we were going there anyway I decided to share my Eco Farmhouse: Ostrich House Kenya review both on here and as my first travel vlog. I hope you enjoy!
The road there was beautiful and when we first arrived we just checked in and had lunch. Next, we did something we had been excited for. We did the ostrich feeding. Well, technically I did because the ostriches didn’t like my sister and refused to eat from her or my dad, lol. It was such a crazy experience because I have never done this before and have always been a little scared of ostriches since they are sort of random. To be this close to the ostriches was nerve-racking at first but they were both quite friendly and cute. I think Eco Farmhouse: Ostrich House is one of the only places that offers ostrich feeding in Kenya. So, that was quite an experience and so exciting. And obviously we took a million pictures and these ten made the cut.
The ostriches did not appreciate my standup comedy:
Next we decided to take a walk on the farm and see some plants. This was also very exciting for us. Both my sister and I have grown up in Nairobi so we’re city girls and my dad mostly grew up in Nairobi too although he traveled more to smaller cities in Kenya. Either way. we were excited because we don’t see such stuff in the city. This sort of fresh air, green as far as the eye can see, fresh fruits and sun are somewhat foreign to us. We thought it would be a short walk but the manager, Sanjay, was so lovely he went out of his way to show us everything. We had such a fun time learning about everything they grow there!
Do you guys know what plant this is?
I’m sure my Indian readers will have guessed. Those are fresh curry leaves. You can’t make really delicious Indian food without these, they’re usually the basis of curries and many other foods. They aren’t just delicious but also very healthy. They help with digestion, hair growth, nail growth, IBS, acne and more.
End Of Day One
That was pretty much it for day one of my Eco Farmhouse: Ostrich House Kenya review. After over 2 hours of exploring, we were pretty tired and wanted to spend the night just relaxing which is exactly what we did. We had dinner, talked and went to bed early so we can get up early the next day and do some more exploring and some fruit picking. Most of our experiences were great but a couple of things didn’t sit right with me. I’ll share more on that on the day two post. Hope you enjoyed this review so far and do let me know if you did in the comments below!
Special shoutout to my sister, by the way. She’s the one who took all these amazing pictures!
As I mentioned, I also made a travel vlog about the two days and you can see the vlog about day one below. I would recommend it since you can see the ostrich feeding instead of just looking at the pictures.

Loved your vlog Pooja. I think you aced it.
Those rooms were great, plus a kitchen and personal cooking place! I’ll have to add that to my to-visit list.
Great pictures from your sis too.
I dig lizards as well, and the house ones especially because they keep the insects away.
Thank you, so glad you enjoyed the vlog! 💖😊
Ostriches are cool! When I was a kid, an ostrich bit me, even though I was careful around them, so I learned to be even more careful around them!
Yup ostriches are quite hard to control and very aggressive. One almost bit me but luckily it was behind a fence.
The one bit me was behind a fence. It doesn’t help
Oh no, yeah you can’t be close enough for them to bite you no matter what.
What spectacular photos. Loved them all. Ostriches are that tall! 😯 and loved your narrative. Thanks for sharing these. Spectacular post. Xoxo blessings. Happy June.
Thanks so much. Yes, the ostriches were huge but also very cute! Happy June 😊
