Accommodation Details

YES WE ARE OPEN for interactive alpaca farm tours to Wairarapa residents only during Covid 19 Alert Level 3.

Tours will be small (no more than 6 people who belong in the same bubble). BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. For Covid 19 contact tracing we ask that you provide your name, residential address and contact details in the Comments section of the booking.

  • A lot of things were explained nicely here to get the differences between the genders and how farming alpaca is handled as also the actual history of the alpaca and where they are coming from in first place. Aside being a farm, they have since few pets as well, you can take a walk with.

  • Great tour if you have family with young kids, big kids, teens or young adults. And especially if you have elderly parents who may not have the energy to do alot but want to experience something that made them happy! We are a family of 4 adults (with 2 elderly parents) and we all had a great time!
