There are also predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, jackal and bat-eared foxes.
The game population is continually being increased by wildlife moving through the migratory corridors. There is a large variety of species of birds including many raptors. Manyara Ranch has a variety of habitats, which include open savannah, acacia woodland, bush and riverine forest.
