Discover the wonderful world of the ostrich family, a tourist attraction like no other!
SAFARI TOUR: In this interpretation center of the ostrich, adventurers will discover the chicks in the nursery, meet beak to beak with a flock of ostriches and maybe have the opportunity to touch one.
Presentation of 3 ostrich species: black, blue and red. Through the dirt trails and enchanted woods, explorers can meet ”Jonquille”, the ostrich who thinks she is a person, ”Rouge-Gorge”, the red ostrich and even the sweet ”Clémentine”.
Nid’Otruche is a mixture of African land and Jurassic Park, right here in the Laurentians. Children can see the similarity between the ostrich and its ancestor the Gallimimus. This bird may seem sweet, but he knows how to defend himself when he is felled by a lion: he can kill him with one kick!
