We were so excited when the tramp carrying us were chased by Alpacas and sheeps. It was so cute. As if they were trained, they were not afraid to come to us for food pellets provided. Best.

There is public transport available from the City Centre to Agrodome. There is a link but I am not able to post links on TripAdvisor. But if you check out Baybus routes, Rotorua you can find what you need.
