Wildlife Photography

I’m a passionate photography and nothing gives me more joy then being out in the bush and photographing the wild. Many first-time safari goers invest in SLRs and zoom lenses before setting out on their travels. However many do not dedicate time to some trial and error photography. If its just getting out into your garden and photographing birdlife or your pet dog, such practice will help you in those precious moments on safari.

I’ve found a couple of website which I believe will assist you in your wildlife photography. Just taking away three or four pieces of their advice will see your technique change dramatically. Best of luck and happy snapping!

In a matter of months, Manyara Ranch Conservancy has gone from one strength to another. We are very excited today to announce that we are now at the number one position on TripAdvisor. This accomplishment would have not been achieved without the hard-working and dedicated MRC team and the clients that have supported us over the last year. Thank you to all who have contributed comments on TripAdvisor and we look forward to receiving more candid feedback in the near future.

Thank you.

A Horse Riders Delight at Manyara Ranch Conservancy

Horse riders are loving Manyara Ranch Conservancy  as we bring them the perfect location for a gallop among Africa’s finest wildlife.With 35,000 acres of exclusive wilderness to explore at leisure, its definitely a horse riders playground. Here at the Conservancy we have horses and crew permanently located at camp to cater for bookings at short notice. Our thoroughbreds are imported from Kenya and  have been trained over the last year in the bush environment.

Here are some images from our latest horse riding expeditions
