Shy llamas watch from a distance, bold llamas step right up and say ‘Hello!’  All of the llamas were shy at one time.  Will you be the first one a shy llama speaks to?

Visiting The Llama Sanctuary is an exciting and yet peaceful experience.  The paddocks at the new Ecopark location are gently sloping and have not yet been groomed, so they are not ideal for wheelchairs and strollers.  If you have a wheelchair or have difficulty moving over rough ground, let us know beforehand and we will make sure the llamas are accessible to you.

Llamas playig games on the hillside

On cool days the llamas can be found mooching around the park or playing games.

Tours may be possible at other times.  We always do our best to accommodate individual needs

The days are long at The Llama Sanctuary.  When we are not guiding visitors, a myriad of other tasks demand our attention: feeding & tending to the elderly, the sick, the injured, the disabled; cleaning paddocks & barns, building, shearing, nail-trimming, fence repairs, grass-cutting, driving around the country catching, re-homing or otherwise helping llamas in need, counting llamas,  as well as trail-clearing, noxious plant removal and of course, answering emails, telephone calls, website building and fulfilling orders from The Llama Sanctuary online shop.  The list is endless.
