Wild Dog Sightings

Once an area where wildlife feared to venture, Manyara Ranch Conservancy is now a haven, with many species taking up permanent residency. Surveys conducted in 2004 revealed a number of wild dogs denning in the conservancy, and today we continue to sight this rare and vanishing species of East Africa.

Recently, six dogs were sited in an area deep inside the conservancy. With the help of AWF, game scouts continually protect and monitor the Manyara Ranch Conservancy allowing the conservation of endangered wildlife and their habitat.
