Our alpacas always seem to be full of amazement. With a slight frown and a cheerful look, they are waiting for you in our zoo. A fresh haircut and warm fur, which not only provides warmth but is also used to make clothes, for example. Originally they come from the Andes mountains in South America, but as you can see from the photos, they also love it in the zoo at Hof van Eckberge!
