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.
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.
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.
The rains have set in, but there is plenty of action on the Conservancy. Elephants are around every corner and a large number of bull herds have been sighted. Excitingly, a recent walking safari was fortunate enough to encounter over 120 eland. The calls of the camp lions have been heard by staff nearly every night. The three lion clubs are looking big and strong, with one male cub developing a lot quicker then his siblings. Our own migration is also occurring on the Conservancy. Hundreds of wildebeest are calving and guests have sighted large numbers of newborn calves.
