Update from Manyara Ranch Conservancy

The rains have set in, but there is plenty of action on the Conservancy. Elephants are around every corner and a large number of bull herds have been sighted. Excitingly, a recent walking safari was fortunate enough to encounter over 120 eland. The calls of the camp lions have been heard by staff nearly every night. The three lion clubs are looking big and strong, with one male cub developing a lot quicker then his siblings. Our own migration is also occurring on the Conservancy. Hundreds of wildebeest are calving and guests have sighted large numbers of newborn calves.
