This past weekend, Craig Sholley and John Butler, both from the African Wildlife Foundation’s Washington offices, visited the Conservancy for 4 nights. They collected footage for AWF’s 50th anniversary which will include a piece on the importance of Manyara Ranch Conservancy and the cooperation with nearby National Parks. We also had guests in camp and so they obtained some good footage of our tented camp camp, the environment and wildlife in the area. One particularly good scene was a family herd of elephant crossing over the open plains from Tarangire just before sunset which I have included below as I think they are rather good.

During the stay, we had visits from the Tanzania AWF and TLCT management who were also interviewed for the film, not to mention the Park wardens of Tarangire and Manyara National Parks between which the Conservancy is situated and therefore positively impacts both areas.
We look forward to seeing the final film which should be released later this year.
