Your journey begins nestled in the foothills at east edge of the Gallatin Valley in Bozeman, Montana where Montana Llama Guides calls home. Come visit our little slice of heaven as we explore our Pack Llama operations. We have two different pastures available.
Home Llama Pasture
This is our breeding operations with the mama llamas and their babies. Each year in June our production females give birth to one “cria” also known as a baby llama after 11.5 months of being pregnant. That’s a super long time! And we take really good care of the mamas and their babies.
A cria will be with its mom for about 6 months before its weaned and moved to a pasture with all the other weanlings. This gives mom some piece and quiet while putting energy into the growing the baby llama inside her. That’s right…once a llama gives birth they are receptive and want to be bred again 17-21 days later. These mamas work hard all year caring for young and developing new ones.
The full maturity of a pack llama comes at 4-5 years of age. Its during its first several years that we begin the training process getting the males ready for the trail. At 3 years of age, the females are mature enough to be bred. We average 4-6 cria each year.
Llamas on Lincoln Pasture
Llamas on Lincoln is where the true trail kings live. This pastures houses are male pack llamas. Once male llamas reach 8-10 months, it’s time to separate them from the females. As the mature, they can get a little fiesty. It’s best they go play with other boys.
Each visit you’ll get a bag of treats to feed plus help feed them hay if they need it. You’ll also have plenty of time to take some real good photos. So don’t forget your camera. Your social media is about to explode. You know…..llamas are the new unicorn.
$150/group – up to 4 people. $20 each additional person. Under 3 free. Includes souvenir.
