Treking with Alpacas
Haguelands in Burmarsh is home to Romney Marsh's only herd of alapacas and you can go treking with them. This is a wonderful way to get the feel of the Marsh with its dykes and farmland and to learn more about the alpacas.
Alpacas are one of four members of the South American camelid species. They are hardy, intelligent and love company thus their strong herding instinct. Alpacas are generally alert and have very good eyesight and they are normally gentle with humans and other animals, making them good pets. Alpacas are docile animals with very individual personalities; they are funny, intelligent, social and affectionate.
Trekking with Alpacas
The alpacas used at Haguelands are halter trained, gentle, sensitive and inquisitive - which leads to fun and laughter and they get as much pleasure from the trek as you will.
Alpacas make ideal partners for trekking for all ages, groups, singles, special occasions and it is great for families. Children under 14 are very welcome but they must be closely supervised by a responsible adult at all times and will share an alpaca with an adult.
When you come to visit the alpacas please remember we are a farm, so please do dress accordingly, suitable shoes or wellies and warm clothing as appropriate.
Meet and Learn about the Alpacas
Want to meet and learn about these gorgeous creatures without the trek? Why not organise a Meet & Greet? Great for those too young to trek with the Alpaca’s or unable to walk long distances. You’ll get to meet and feed the Alpaca’s, (which is a perfect photo opportunity), all the while learning a little bit about these unique and gentle creatures.
