The mini on farm trek entails one llama for every three children and must be accompanied by one adult.
We can also cater for preschool children (3-5 years), itinerary is still the same but instead of mini trek they do a woodland walk.
Visitors centre includes 3 toilets with hot water hand washing areas, indoor and outdoor eating facilities where you are welcome to have a picnic after your visit, car parking next to centre with full disabled access.
For an afternoon activity we can offer an expedition of a woodland safari, identifying native woodland trees, wild flowers, pond life and looking for signs of wildlife.
Duration of expedition is approx 1 hour
For groups of 25 -50 people would need to be split into two groups to do the full day with both activities.
“Thank you for a fantastic day at Catanger Llama Farm. The children have been so excited and have not stopped talking about the visit. There are lots of jealous staff in school, now I have come back soooooo chilledddddddd.
Thank you again for a fantastic day – a day I hope the children will remember for the rest of their lives.”

“Catanger Llamas recently paid a visit to a Scout Camp in Oxfordshire, spending the day
taking short walks around the campsite with our Scouts. The Scouts had a whale
of a time – everyone was desperate to have a go, and the activity was the
highlight of the weekend for many of them!
We were incredibly grateful to Catanger Llamas for providing us with such a
fantastic activity; they were very reasonably priced, and incredibly friendly
and professional throughout. They were a joy to have at the event, and we will
definitely be using them again in the future.”
