FAQ’s For Alpaca Experiences

Can children go on an alpaca walk?

If you’re looking for a unique and memorable alpaca experience, we’ve got just the thing. Our alpaca experiences are for children aged 5 and over. Whilst our Alpacas are always fascinated by little humans, sometimes little hands can be a little too much for them so whilst we welcome children over the age of 5 those 14 and under are able to help their accompanying adult to hold the lead. You can be sure that your child will have a truly one-of-a-kind experience. From interacting with the alpacas to learning about their care and feeding, your child will come away from the experience with a new appreciation for these amazing animals. So if you’re looking for an unforgettable alpaca experience for your child, look no further.

Do Alpacas Spit?

This is probably the most common question we get asked. Unlike their cousin the Llama, Alpacas do not generally spit at humans, they just got a bad rep from their Llama cousin.

Who are these experience suitable for?

Whilst our Alpacas are always fascinated by little humans, sometimes little hands can be a little too much for them so whilst we welcome children over the age of 5 those 14 and under are able to help their accompanying adult to hold the lead.

We don’t recommend our Alpaca experiences for expectant mothers. Whilst Alpacas are one of the calmest and gentlest animals, they are still animals with all the risks that this brings.

Can I join if I am pregnant?

Unfortunalty not, alpacas are increasingly popular as domesticated animals, and alpaca experiences – where people can interact with these gentle creatures – are becoming more common.

However, pregnant women are advised against participating in alpaca experiences, as there is a risk of contracting toxoplasmosis from contact with the alpacas’ feces.

Toxoplasmosis is a disease that can cause serious health problems for both the mother and the developing fetus, so it is best to err on the side of caution. While alpacas may be cute and cuddly, pregnant women should leave the alpaca experiences to others.

What time do the treks start?

We can be flexible around your requirements. Its worth bearing in mind the time of year, we want you to be able to see and experience the Alpaca in the day light. So, if your booking takes us into the hours of darkness we’ll contact you.

What should I wear

Whist we can guarantee a great time we can’t guarantee the weather; suitable walking shoes and water proofs are a good idea. If there has been a lot of rain we’ll try and keep you to as dry a ground as much as possible, but sometimes the mud can’t be avoided as our Alpacas will testify to that.

Is there anything else I should bring?

A smart phone or camera for those all-important selfies with the heard.

Believe it or not the sun does shine here in Wales, so make sure if the sun is due to be out to pack the sunscreen and a hat for while we are out in the open.

How do I walk an Alpaca

Don’t worry the boys will show you, but for those eager to know ahead of time, we’ll help you harness your Alpaca with their head collar. Each of our Alpacas have their own head collar and lead, to make sure it fits just right.
