Manyara Ranch

Located north of Tarangire National Park within the Kwakuchinja wildlife migration corridor, Manyara Ranch is quite different from Honeyguide’s other projects. After struggling to achieve financial viability as a single-use cattle ranch, Manyara Ranch was bought by the Africa Wildlife Foundation in order to transfer the ownership of this land back to the local communities. Manyara Ranch is now the only community-owned land trust in Tanzania. Like Randilen, which neighbors Manyara Ranch, the Ranch’s revenues are the result of high-end tourism. Having been sought out as a partner by the African Wildlife Foundation, Honeyguide provides wildlife protection services on the ranch and surrounding areas.
