What Can I Expect

Go alpaca trekking in the wetlands of Romney Marsh in Kent! Visit 'Alpaca Annie' to meet and learn about her merry troupe of gorgeous alpacas, then have the total pleasure of taking one of them out for a walk through the fields of this working arable farm.

Putting it simply, you will fall in love with these alpacas during your experience. When handled correctly and with understanding, an alpaca can actually make a fantastic pet. They're full of character, intelligent, affectionate and docile. They're also very sociable too, as they have a strong herd instinct.

Having built up her own alpaca herd and realising that we all love alpacas as much as she does, Annie created her alpaca trekking experiences, which have proved hugely popular. And we have to say, the staff are lovely, knowledgeable and approachable. But it really is the alpacas who utterly steal the show. They are just so gorgeous and funny at the same time, as you'll find out when you take them walking.

You'll be partnered up with your very own alpaca for the walk. You'll find some like to lead, others prefer to be in the middle of the pack, whilst certain alpaca will only ever tag along behind on the treks. So who will you be walking with? It might be Stupot, Jeremy Fisher, Allan, Bertie Boy or Tony? We are so into the fact that these alpacas all have such human names!

And if you're worried about the trekking bit, don't be, it's more ambling with the alpacas than a leg-burning trek across tricky terrain in Machu Picchu. The walk goes something like this: walk a bit. stop. graze on some nice juicy grass. walk a bit. stop. graze on some other nice juicy grass... and repeat. Our favourite bit of the trek is the half-time break. This is when you can take brilliant selfies with your alpaca and then spoil them with a very special culinary treat…carrots.

After roaming the fields of the farm, you'll head back to base. Having thanked your new best buddy for the walk, there's still time left on your alpaca trekking experience to visit the rest of the herd to hand-feed carrots. Such charming and characterful creatures, we reckon this is a great activity for all!
