The Alpaca Place
Accommodation DetailsYES 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. Once we receive and accept your booking no-one outside of your “bubble” will have a booking accepted during that time-slot. The tours take place outside and physical distancing is easy. Handwashing is required and facilities are available. A Worksafe Covid-19 safety plan is available for inspection on arrival.
