Zanzibah Alpacas...... is based on the belief that our animals and customers' needs are of the utmost importance. We are committed to meeting those needs.
We believe that quality speaks for itself, all our animals are very social and are well handled. I dedicate alot of time to gain the confidence and trust of all my animals, knowing each one individually and by name.
I have sourced my animals from all over the UK. I have quality genetics from American Peruvian descent, Australian descent and I have also purchased animals from both large and small alpaca breeders to establish my quality multi-coloured herd. I am now focusing on breeding my own home-bred animals.

Both of these boys have fantastic fleeces that you only would expect to find on the best bloodlines. They have solid correct conformation which carries superfine amazing fleeces. Packed with elite bundling fleeces , consistent with superfine crimp and brightness these boys really set the standard for breeding quality alpacas for the future.

If you would like to come and see us and share in our passion to breed quality that is truly outstanding .....
Unfortunately due to the ever increasing risk. All our Stud males are 'In House Use' only. We do not offer any outside Stud Services at this moment in time.
We operate a closed herd, thus reducing any risk factor for infectious disease.
We are sorry of any inconvenience that this may cause.
However peace of mind is priceless.
