It was all hands on deck last week when an injured bull elephant was discovered near camp. In need of urgent attention camp staff called for Dr Chuma from neighboring Tarangire National Park. With the support from camp staff and the Ranch’s anti-poaching team, the elephant was successfully darted. Dr Chuma identified the injury as an old snare wound that had worsened over time. The team worked quickly to administer long lasting antibiotics and cleaned the wound to prevent further infection. Thirteen minutes later, the elephant woke and was reunited with the rest of his herd. The Conservancy would like to thank Dr Chuma, the anti-poaching team and camp staff for all their help and team-work.
Time flies when you are having fun they say and time has certainly flown past since we went to INDABA. We have now opened our 12 bed luxury tented camp on Manyara Ranch and are very excited by the outcome. Rather than write about what we have developed, you can follow this link to pictures we have posted to Flickr. See the outcome for yourself.
At last we are online with our first website. Our site is a work in progress, so we look forward to developing the content as time goes by. Thanks to Mark for his time and patience in developing the 1st phase. We will be expanding our photo gallery, adding to the downloads available and introducing a direct access point for our agents that will include high-res images, fact files, sample itineraries and other useful information.
