Unlike many other park-based lodges, Manyara Ranch is located on a private ranch allowing guests exclusive access to the land and wildlife.
Situated in a grove of shady acacia trees, eight spacious en-suite tents all have their own viewing deck with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. Dining is a simple affair, with food eaten al fresco and altogether, either at the camp or even on the shores of Lake Manyara. There is also a bar and selection of books in the central mess tent.
A no-frills camp, Manyara Ranch is all about the activities. Those on offer include riding and walking safaris, game drives and hide visits. The hides at Manyara Ranch are placed for optimum, up-close wildlife viewing. Working closely with the local Masai community guests can also visit the local school and market and immerse themselves in Masai life.
