Alpaca Walking Experience

Take one of our alpacas for a leisurely stroll around the Zoo before we open, with one of our experienced team. Learn all about these quirky characters and help feed them their breakfast before the end of your experience.

What to expect on the day of your alpaca walking experience

This experience begins at our main entrance where you'll be met by one of our friendly volunteers, who will run through the plan for the experience before escorting you down to the farm where you will meet one of our experienced keepers.

Our keeper will talk you through how to safely walk your alpaca before introducing you to your own alpaca. You will then head off on a stroll around the Zoo at the pace set by our alpacas. Make sure you look out around you as might see some of our other animals out and about before we open!
