We are locals who have a bach in Wainui and so have driven past it for many years - but had never been to Shamarra So we decided to be tourists in our own back yard and arranged a visit after a lovely lunch at French Farm Winery. We had such a wonderful time - much more laid back and much more contact with the beautiful animals than we had expected. Cuddles, feeding the alpacas, watching their amazing faces and learning about their care. Lydia is so kind and nice. The views were stunning - breathtaking even for us who live here. The shop is marvelous. So as locals we highly recommend visiting Shamarra - a very memorable and relaxing experience.

We are locals living in Akaroa harbour basin for 30 years - but had never been to Shamarra until our relatives in London told us they follow Shamarra on Instagram. So we decided to be tourists in our own back yard and arranged a family trip. We had such a wonderful time - much more laid back and much more contact with the beautiful animals than we had expected. Cuddles, feeding the alpacas, watching their amazing faces and learning about their care. Lydia and her colleague "I" who guided us were so kind and nice. The views were stunning - breathtaking even for us who live here. The shop is marvelous. So as locals we highly recommend visiting Shamarra - a very memorable and relaxing experience.

This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip, so much that we went twice on our two day visit to Akaroa. Lydia our guide was brilliant and we learnt so much about these adorable alpacas that are extremely well cared for and loved. As soon as we arrived, we knew we wouldn’t want to leave. We will always treasure the special time we spent cuddling , feeding and patting the beautiful alpacas and learning about their funny personalities. They are truly amazing and the babies so gorgeous, the fantastic views are an added bonus. If we could have taken a couple of alpacas home we would have but managed to take home some beautiful knitwear from the well stocked shop instead. We will be back and already planning our next trip just to visit you, this time bringing more family. Big thank you Lydia, for welcoming us and making this memorable visit an experience we’ll never forget :-)
