Alpaca Walks

 
Kensington Prairie Farm Alpaca Walks
Our Alpaca Walks are one of the only opportunities to feed the alpacas out of your hands at our farm.
 

 

PRE-BOOKED ALPACA WALKS:

We recommend that you arrive on farm by 9: 45 am for 10:00 am walk and 10:45 am for 11:00 am walk to check in and wash your hands 

(pre-payment is now required for 100% of the balance).

The walk will begin at scheduled start time of 10:00 am or 11:00 am so it is important to be on time.
 If you miss the initial safety talk, you will not be permitted on our tour. 
We encourage you to feed the alpacas out of the sanitized buckets provided during these walks. You are able to touch the animals if they allow it during these walks. 

The cost for tours are as follows:

Adults and Youth - $90/halter (Maximum 2 people per halter)
               Children - $90/halter (Maximum 2 people per halter)

Walks take 30 minutes and take place at 10:00 am - 10:30 am & 11:00 am - 11:30 am on Fridays and Sundays.

Walks must be booked in advance and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

We will require all visitors to thoroughly wash their hands before and  after the tours and we will be limiting our walk sizes to 4 individuals. We will be enforcing social distancing throughout the entire walk.
