Trek with your Llama Companion!
Llamas have been helping people carry their wares for thousands of years. Your llama will carry your things (water, binoculars, coat, snacks, etc.) as you trek through various ecotypes in a setting that feels right out of Africa on this llama trek adventure.
These members of the camel family are in the fossil record in Florida. They have been bred for gentleness and make excellent hiking companions. Llamas are alert, curious, and as excited to trek as you are. They walk at a comfortable pace and their keen senses help point out animals you might miss. Walking with a llama will capture your heart and make your Giraffe Ranch llama trek all the more memorable.
What kind of animals do you have?
Giraffe Ranch has hundreds of animals representing 70+ different species all housed under huge, ancient oaks and grass lands in this beautiful environment that is right out of an African safari. Because our property consists of about 50 acres of pristine wilderness, we’re able to house a variety of exotic species such as giraffe, zebra, bongo antelope, otters, lemurs, hippos, pere’ Davids deer, warthogs, monkeys, and more! You’ll also have a chance to see a variety of native wildlife.
I do not want to pay for a tour; can I just come and feed the animals?
No. The optional add-ons are only available with the purchase of one of our safaris.
Which tour time is best to view the animals?
All of our tour times are great! The animals that we house here are specifically chosen because they do well in central Florida’s climate.
Where do your animals come from?
Because we have so much space for our animals, babies are a very common thing! Most of our animals are born onsite. We buy, sell, and trade with other licensed facilities.
What should I wear?
Although not required, we recommend close-toed shoes. We go rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather.
Can I bring my pet?
We do not allow any unauthorized animals on the premises, which includes our driveway and parking lot. Please leave all dogs, cats, and other furry critters at home.
Will I see every animal during the tour?
Our guides make every effort to encourage our residents to greet our tour groups but the distance at which they are viewed can vary due to the large areas our animals inhabit.
Other things to know
We do not do special pricing for children, infants, seniors, etc.
