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

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. 

 

Game viewing hides provide the latest wildlife action at the Conservancy

“Can we go back again? ”

It’s what all the guests are saying at the Manyara Ranch Conservancy this week. Our newest game viewing hide has been providing some of the best wildlife action on the Conservancy this season. Guests have witnessed many exciting events such as lions stalking zebra and elephants and their babies playing in the dam’s water. While watching such exciting shows guests have also enjoyed refreshing sundowners and delicious canapes, completing the overall game hide viewing experience.

News from Manyara Ranch Conservancy

Clients have enjoyed a brilliant start to the high season with a number of special sightings in and around camp. The Kadala lion pride (13 in total) has been seen everyday for the last 10 days, including some new additions, two-month old cubs. Guests were also fortunate to watch nature in its truest form witnessing mating scenes between the oldest male and one of the pride’s females. Game viewing from specially constructed hides continues. Rustic hides have been placed in certain idyllic locations on Manyara Ranch’s private and exclusive land. Many of these hides overlook a waterhole/ dam hidden among the bush, a favourite place for animals and birds to drink. Guests can enjoy a unique wildlife viewing experience while sipping on some refreshing sundowners.
