    Llama Trek
    What a wonderful experience! Very chilled relaxing walk , leading these wonderful gentle , inquisitive funny creatures. We had a group outing for our fitness club and wanted something active but different and this 100% fitted the bill. It was drizzling weather but it didn’t dampen our experience. An informative talk was given telling us a bit about Llamas etc and then we were taken to the barn to be shown how to lead them etc , I cannot recommend this enough , beautiful countryside too , perfect day out , if sunny there is plenty of space to picnic after your trek too in picturesque surroundings. 10/10

    Trekking with grandchildren
    We took our grand-daughters (11 & 7) to Catanger as a surprise during their summer holidays. It was a wonderful experience, thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The llamas were beautiful creatures, so calm, appealing and well behaved. At the start of the visit we were given a talk about the animals,which was very interesting. The arrangements and facilities at the site were excellent. We would thoroughly recommend.

    Lovely llamas!
    Absoutely fantastic day - highly recommended. Treked for a couple of hours with a llama each in the hot sunshine - they are lovely, gentle creatures. We had smiles on our faces all morning and for the rest of the day too! Our guide Abbie was friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back for another trek!

    Trek-riffic!
    Absolutely fabulous day out. Booked onto the half day trek at very short notice (less than a weeks notice) - and the team did everything they could to accommodate us and fit us in. The pace of the trek wasn't too taxing, though be warned that the ground can be quite rough so sensible shoes are recommended. We got to walk the Llamas through some stunning scenary - which they all tried to eat!! The Llamas in our group were Barnaby, Quinn and Waffle (who is a quarter Alpaca) and they were really friendly and gorgeous. Our guide was Sarah who was very chatty, welcoming and had an unbelievable passion for her job. We met a few of the other Llamas at the fences too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Fabulous morning of llama-related fun!
    We had an amazing morning at Catanger Llamas. Sarah, our guide, was incredibly passionate and knowledgable, and took time to answer all our questions. The llamas are gorgeous and so well-behaved (we had Quinn, Gino, Emoji, Pogo, Indigo and Barnaby!) The trek through the farm was beautiful (although wear solid shoes!), and we loved getting to meet the babies and the dogs at the end. Highly recommend!

    Kids loved it (and adults too!)
    I have visited Catanger three times now, once as part of a hen weekend, and twice with my 8yo son and his friend. All visits have been immensely enjoyable. Sarah is so knowledgeable and an excellent host. The trekking was such good fun and my son absolutely fell in love with his llama (so much so we had to trek with him again the next time). It is such a beautiful location and the walk around the farm was the perfect pace. It is clear that the animals are very well carrd for. Communication in advance of arriving was very clear and Sarah went out of her way to provide extra information to help us. Would definitely recommend Catanger as unique experience.

    It's like walking with family and old friends. Highly recommend.
    This is our 5th (we think) visit to the farm and Llama Trekking. We booked by sending an email and got a speedy reply from Sarah with some dates. We opted for a half day trek with Chrostmas theme. We requested that we were able to walk with 2 specific Llamas that we have had before (I paid to trek and we had 3 Llamas between the 3 of us, I'm not great with animals). After the introduction and safety talk we were off. The walk was extremely muddy and in places challenging, which really added to the adventure. Sarah had judged the group well and panned the route that would best suit us all. After a fun walk in the beautiful fields and countryside we ended up back on the farm where we met the other Llamas and baby Llamas. We got to wash off our boots a bit and then went into the visitors centre for warm mulled wine and mince pies. It was, as always, a lot of fun and is more like a festive walk with friends and family than a paid experience. I cannot reccomend Catanger Llamas enough for anyone who loves animals and a nice walk with lovely people. 5 star doesn't seem enough!

    Llama Trek
    This was the most wonderful experience. Sarah was amazing and her knowledge was incredible. I smiled all weekend, It’s Wednesday and we’re still talking about it. It was like therapy with fur. I would highly recommend, if you don’t go you’re really missing out.

    Delightful experience
    Came with my adult children for my birthday treat as love anything animal! Such a wonderful experience in beautiful surroundings. Sarah’s passion and knowledge of the llamas definitely added to the enjoyment. The llamas are just adorable with their own quirky personalities 🦙 Would love to visit again, maybe even staying overnight in the gypsy caravan or shepherd’s hut ☺️

This is the fourth time my family have been llama trekking at Catanga llama farm. It’s a lovely way to spend time with your family and friends. The trek is interesting and informative, giving you the opportunity to learn about and interact with the llamas. Sarah who takes you on the trek is friendly, engaging and makes you feel very welcome. I’d highly recommend this experience.

My wife always wanted to llama trek so it was a 50th birthday treat. I was reticent and when it was absolutely persisting down when we arrived I was even less enthusiastic. Enter stage left Sarah, our llama leader for the day. A tour de force of enthusiasm, and a love for llamas and her job exuded from every pore.

By the time we started the trek the rain had stopped, the sun came out and we had a wonderful 2 hours travelling the countryside. Afterwards we were taken to see the new babies that had just been born and take photographs before we were led to a picnic area to have a sandwich and a drink. This grumpy old git fully enjoyed it as did my wife. The llamas make the day but Sarah makes it even more special

We had the most wonderful day out at Catanger Llamas! The trek itself was wonderful even in some rather heavy rain at times, with the llamas behaving beautifully. They're incredible animals and it was great fun to walk along with them, asking lots of questions! Sarah was fantastic - very knowledgeable and a great host. After the trek they took us down to meet the mothers and babies, where we were lucky enough to actually witness one of the llamas giving birth! Watching a newborn wobble its way to standing just a few minutes later was a wonderful experience that I'll never forget.

As an extra treat we stayed in the Shepherds Hut for a night too. The facilities were just what was needed for a relaxing evening BBQing dinner and then relaxing round the fire with the occasional visit from some gentle friendly dogs. Very close to the visitors centre and car park so we didn't have to carry the coolbox/ overnight bag far. Only wish we'd stayed for longer!

I bought a llama trek ticket for my husband and the two of us headed off to Weedon Lois near Towcester in Northants and met the charming Sarah Brown and informative farm owner Mary who introduced a group of us (about 8 people) to our llamas. We learnt a lot and had great fun getting to know our respective animals - they all have different personalities. The walk flew by and we left grinning from ear to ear. Highly recommend to anyone - kids need to be 7 years + and you need to be able to walk across farmland at a reasonably brisk pace for 2 hours but ask Sarah if you have particular needs. She is super-helpful and friendly.

Nice trek through the countryside accompanied by a (relatively) well behaved Llama.

Sarah the guide was super knowledgeable about all things Llama and is clearly incredibly passionate about what she does!

Not sure if I'd do it again as it is a bit on the pricier side of things and I think the novelty of being able to pet a llama played a big part in it. But as a new experience myself and partner both thoroughly enjoyed it.

The trek was gifted to my wife as a birthday gift voucher. Once the C19 restrictions were over we booked a trek for my wife. Sarah is very well organised, her introduction to the llamas was very informative, and the llamas are lovely well looked animals. Totally recommend this to anyone.

We spent an amazing day at the farm, getting to know llamas and taking them for a walk. It was my first llama trekking experience and I absolutely loved it.
Catanger llamas are very friendly and well trained, it's such a pleasure walking with them through the woods, enjoying beautiful nature and fresh air. I had a walk with Emoji and he definitely did everything to keep a smile on my face :)
Sarah is a perfect guide, knowlegable and full of interesting stories.
Farm dogs are very friendly too, especially little Lenny.
Thank you, Catanger Llamas, we'll definitely be back.

A fabulous farm in Northamptonshire, a few windy today to get to but easy to find, a friendly greeting awaited us on arrival. We then visited the tiny shop and indoor area whilst awaiting all other pre-booked people.
A quick talk and then out to meet our llamas, which were big but very lovely.
Thoroughly enjoyed our walk which lasted around an hour, even though the weather was not nice to us. Wellies were an absolute necessity!
We also enjoyed tea and cake at the farm as an added extra for Mother’s Day.

Would definitely come again.

We loved every minute of the trek. It was so informative, friendly and the llamas were cheeky and gorgeous. We sat in a field with the llamas after the walk through countryside and woods just chilling with them and finding out about them all. It was a beautiful day and we will be going again.
