Ranch Visits

Llama Ranch Visits
(also known as Llama Llessons)

ShangriLlama opens its gates weekly for educational sessions that are jam-packed with llama llearning and llama llove! We call these visits Llama Llessons, because guests enjoy a 60-minute, interactive 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 climate-controlled barn and choose to sit near the llama you like the most. Then observe the llama pack while helping other guests answer intriguing questions posed by Mama Llama. Smiles, laughs and learning are guaranteed as you are presented with more than 150 fascinating facts about llamas. Afterward, feel free to take photos and selfies with our llamas. They love to pose for the camera!

Llama Llessons are offered by reservation only for ages four and up. Minors must be accompanied by an adult with an advance reservation. Llama Llessons take place on Saturdays and Sundays year-round and on Wednesdays during holidays and summers. Please see our up-to-the-minute, online calendar for exact times and ticket availability using the Book Now button at the top of this page. We can’t wait to meet you!


  • Couples will be laughing together about their visit with the llamas!
  • Families with children ages four and up will enjoy the shared, educational experience. (Our partnership agreements prevent us from admitting children three years old and younger, but we hope to meet them in the future!)
  • Grandparents will love being able to take their grandchildren on an educational, fun outing.
  • Friends can get together for a fun time or even celebrate a birthday by attending Llama Llessons.
  • Club members, scouts and corporate groups can bond over the hilarity of the llamas.

Casual clothes and closed-toed shoes are recommended for your visit to ShangriLlama.

Bring Your Classroom to ShangriLlama!

ShangriLlama combines education with entertainment through its private barn presentations for 50 students per session. Smiles, laughs and learning are guaranteed as children observe the hilarious llamas and answer age-appropriate questions posed to them by Mama Llama. During the session, all guests are seated on built-in benches around the periphery of ShangriLlama’s climate-controlled barn, while a pack of beautiful and friendly llamas are roaming around the room! After the session, students and teachers are invited to take llama photos and selfies. Our llamas are fully licensed, insured, and they don’t kick, bite or spit at people!

Tickets for school visits cost $6 per student, and up to five teachers attend free! Minimum age: four years old. All schools that visit will receive a complimentary copy of The Llamas of ShangriLlama, our educational, fully illustrated book, which teaches 30 interesting facts about llamas and features the actual llamas the children will have met at ShangriLlama! This book is also available for $10 in our gift shop after your session with the llamas (the online price is $16.99).
