A great season

We have had a super high-season this year with plenty of wildlife all around. While a trip to nearby Tarangire is always an experience to remember, many of our guests comment that they really look forward to returning to the exclusivity of Manyara Conservancy. There is nothing quite like the freedom to roam at will where and when the mood dictates.

With memorable elephant and lion activity in camp on a regular basis and draw of the dam behind camp, there has been plenty of activity to keep our guests busy. Large herds of zebra and wildebeest have decided that the Conservancy is just as attractive a location as the parks – just the way it should be.

This year, we have added a few more species to our animal list. These have been seen in the past, but we are pleased that they are once again back. These include a pack of African Wild Dog, a lone Hippo Bull and Gerenuk which appear amongst the impala from time to time – great camouflage. Click the picture to enlarge.

Elephant bull fight

As if the sight of an elephant wandering over the plains is not impressive enough, our guests stumbled upon two male elephants trying to prove to each other who was the strongest. Although somewhat nervous so see it up close, it was a spectacular sight and our guests sat and observed.. Loud trumpeting, lots of earflapping and dust flying up, it must have been some scene!

The elephants of course did not pose for the picture so many shots are taken from behind – as no one was keen to move closer or to the side, but I think you get the picture.. One of the two, at one stage, ran behind the car to escape the action for a while, needless to say our guests had the adrenalin pumping as well.

Honeymooners Delight

We all have different tastes in furniture, food, people, and the same applies when it comes to choosing a honeymoon location. Some newlyweds choose to seek a more adventurous and unique way of celebrating their marriage, than your typical beachside resort. Manyara Ranch Conservancy is a wonderful choice for honeymooners in Africa; offering the chance to get away from hordes of safari vehicles yet the ability to experience wilderness in complete privacy and adventure.

What our fabulous guests are saying about us

Here are some of our guests latest feedback.

After visiting several properties in the northern Tanzania, this place is just awesome, the game drive of close viewing of the elephants was mind blowing – nothing I have seen before. The tents were great and compliments to the chef for a great dinner. Staff were very hospitable and friendly. A definite return with my family! – Damon Cavello , June 2011

Super place! Very calm and enjoyable. Great combination of things that you can’t do in a National Park, which is wonderful. Neil B – 27th February 2011

Perfect is the only way to describe the Conservancy, the staff and Chris. Chris’s passion for wildlife played out in everything he creates. This was a true ‘Out of Africa’ experience. I will highly recommend this place to all who are interested in a safari and the purpose of the community. Thank you for everything. – Mick and Kelly.
