Shamarra Alpaca Farm Tours




“Heaven on Earth …….. Shamarra farm is breathtaking in every sense of the word ...” (Katrina – California)-Trip Advisor.

Shamarra Alpaca farm, and its herd of over 160 alpacas is set in a beautiful sheltered harbour overlooked by craggy volcanic hills. Only a 20 minute drive from the historic harbor village of Akaroa, The farm offers breathtaking panoramic views of Akaroa harbor and the rolling hills and peaks of the surrounding valleys.

Frank and Anya have farmed alpacas for over11 years, after moving to New Zealand from a small island in the Caribbean and will share their knowledge and history of the ancient and majestic alpaca with you. For thousands of years alpaca fleece was reserved only for Incan royalty so these beautiful, mysterious animals have their own story to tell!

 “Highlight of our New Zealand cruise”….. (Australia)- trip advisor

After a hands on fibre presentation you will have the opportunity to handle the alpacas and appreciate the unique characteristics and their ultra fine, soft, fleece. 

You will experience walking an alpaca on a lead and wander through our herd whilst enjoying these gentle animals grazing contentedly with their young by their side in their natural environment.  Each alpaca has a name, and Anya remembers them all!
