Animal list

Animals Found on Manyara Conservancy

Visitors can expect to see a wide range of wild animals and birds. Following is an animal list for Manyara Ranch Conservancy to which we continue to add as we encounter new species in the area. Apart from mammals, around 350 species of birds have so far been identified and is expected to exceed 400 given more time.

The beauty of the Conservancy is that here you can approach birds and animals on foot to get a better look and of course – other visitors are unlikely to disturb you.
