Norfolk Llamas offers visitors an opportunity to spend a couple of hours enjoying the Norfolk countryside in the company of a llama. You will meet the llamas, learn about these gentle, intelligent animals, take them for a walk, and finish with refreshments on our patio. We are based at Park Farm Nature Reserve, Great Witchingham, by kind permission of the owners of the park, Stephen and Sharon White. Park Farm Nature Reserve is the site of the former Norfolk Wildlife Park and consists of 25 acres of gently undulating parkland with many specimen trees and shrubs and an abundance of bird life, and is an attractive and peaceful setting in which to enjoy the company of the llamas.
In 2015 I fell in love …… with a llama called Lillie. Like most people I might have seen llamas in a zoo as a child but had never had any contact with them until one of our horses went on loan to a family with an extensive collection of animals, including a llama. Having the opportunity to spend time with Lillie I discovered an affinity with llamas and from that point on I read everything I could find about llamas, visited breeders, went on llama walks and experiences, and was determined that when the time was right, I would get myself a llama. In 2017 my husband, Phil, and I reduced our working hours as the first step towards retirement, and found ourselves in a position to be able to further our love of llamas. Rather than buy just one (llamas are herd animals and are not happy living alone) we decided to buy a group of four trekking llamas and start our own llama experience business to share our love of these fascinating and addictive animals. We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to locate our business at Park Farm Nature Reserve, and our group of four became five when we acquired Lillie, the llama who started it all! In April 2019 we bought three young llamas from Watertown Llamas in Devon so we now have a herd of eight.
