Experience a local adventure like no other as you enter the haven of herbs and animals in Port Dickson and learn traditional botanical handicraft.
The day starts with us arriving at the gates of the Port Dickson Ostrich Show Farm. As the name suggests, ostriches are ever present on this compound. However, they also are home to other surprising critters like hedgehogs, rabbits and lizards. You are given the privilege of being up close and personal with these domesticated animals and feeding them their favourites. The park also arranges other activities for you to join in the fun such as outrunning an ostrich and riding horses.
Now, we bring you into the natural world of the Herbal Oasis, where they cultivate over 200 types of herbs and plants. The oasis contains two sections, the bred plants and the wild herbs. Guests are able to wander within the Herbal Oasis to explore the various strains of herbs and spices and observe the wild ones as opposed to those that have been fully domesticated. There are guides who can explain about the uses of these herbs and any unique properties that they exhibit.
Put your herbalism skills to the test as you and your family use the botanical resources around you to craft basic necessities. Visitors are shown the traditional methods of crafting the raw herbs and spices into soaps and mosquito repellents. You then have the chance to apply these skills and create some of your very own which is then gifted to you at the end of the day.
