Manyara Ranch Conservancy
Reviewed 25 July 2011

I've just returned from Manyara Ranch, we weren't there nearly long enough but it was amazing and I'll definitely be back very soon. The tents were luxurious but private and in keeping with the natural surroundings, the food was amazing and the staff, particularly Chris and Jo, were wonderful and so knowledgable about the reserve. They made sure every minute was special and went out of their way to ensure we had a relaxed and wonderful time. i'll 100% be bringing people back!

This place is magical! It has the BEST of everything- Super luxe accommodations, amazing food, and the best game viewing in Tanzania- without the park fees!!! Jo and Chris are so passionate about the animals and share their love with you! They have created some unique experiences, such as a walking safari, a night time game drive, a horseback safari and an amazing viewing hut right on the waterhole!

Everything about Manyara Ranch was wonderful. The accommodations were lovely, the staff friendly and very helpful, and the food delicious. The two very accomplished people running the ranch, Chris and Joanna, were tireless in providing opportunities for animal viewing (and each outing was rewarding), were extremely knowledgeable, and clearly love their work. We stayed there three days and nights and would have liked to stay longer.

I've been on safari in Tanzania several times, but I've never stayed anywhere like Manyara Ranch! It was a real treat to be warmly and genuinely welcomed by the camp staff and shown to my tent -- what luxury! The range of activities is unusual and includes many things you can't do in national parks, like walking and horseback safaris, night drives with a spotlight, and genuine non-touristy visits to Maasai communities. I only wish I didn't fall into such a deep sleep, so that I could have stayed awake listening to the elephants, wildebeest, zebra and lions calling all night long.

If the activities, setting, and food weren't enough already, the hospitality and knowledge of the camp managers/guides put this trip into a whole new category of Superb Safari. Chris and Jo are gracious hosts, knowledgeable guides just full of interesting stories, and have a real passion for their work. We saw big game on our walking safari but it was also very special to take notice of the smaller things happening on the ground that so often go unnoticed, things like dung beetle and honey badger activity, ostrich eggs, snake skins, porcupines, and the like.

What a special place. Stay for a night, stay for a week -- you won't regret it. I can't recommend this enough!

We visited Manyara Ranch Conservancy on our honeymoon, and haven't stopped talking about it yet! We stayed at several other tented camps in Tanzania, but none compared. To be able to view the animals without 10 other vehicles looking too, was special. We had a great experience on our off road game drives, night game drive, and walking safari. The staff was welcoming and the service was great. I can't say enough about how good the food was. Our tent was cozy and met all of our needs. Would love to come back.
