Ranch & School Visits

Llama Ranch Visits
(also known as Llama Llessons)

ShangriLlama receives many requests for ranch visits, so we open our gates every week through an arrangement with Groupon and LivingSocial. We call these visits Llama Llessons, because guests enjoy a 60-minute, interactive, educational visit with our pack of llamas. Meet these fascinating animals and learn about them from head to toe!

Mama Llama

When you arrive for Llama Llessons, you will enter our air-conditioned barn and choose to sit by the llama you like the most. Then observe the animals while helping our other guests answer intriguing questions posed by Mama Llama. Smiles, laughs and learning are guaranteed!

Llama Llessons are currently offered by reservation only on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and I:00 p.m., plus Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. Starting August 30, we’ll shift our Wednesday Llama Llessons to 4pm. Each session lasts one hour and is jam-packed with llama llearning and llama llove!

Our Llamas Visit Schools!

ShangriLlama’s educational sessions are based on its children’s book, The Llamas of ShangriLlama, which teaches 30 interesting facts about llamas to encourage children to read, to appreciate rhyme, and to increase their reading comprehension in a fun way. Your school library will receive a complimentary copy of The Llamas of ShangriLlama.

Llama Book

At no charge, ShangriLlama brings its llamas to elementary schools solely in conjunction with a PTA book fundraiser. For each book sold before or during the visit, ShangriLlama will donate 20% of the proceeds to your school’s PTA! Additionally, each book sold before the llama visit will be signed by the author, Mama Llama!

To schedule your school’s llama visit, please e-mail Mama Llama with your proposed date and time via llama@ShangriLlama.com. Our llamas are fully licensed, insured, and they don’t kick, bite or spit at people!

The Llamas of ShangriLlama is also available for purchase in the Llama Gifts section of this website (free shipping!) and on www.amazon.com.
