At the Circle Z Ranch, we cherish what we have offered to our guests since 1926. Our herd of horses, many bred and raised right here on the ranch, are carefully selected for every level of rider. Whether you are a child who has never ridden, or an accomplished equestrian, we have the right horse for you. And you keep this horse throughout your stay.
We cherish that we are a family owned operation, and our family has been coming to this ranch since 1936. Our vision runs deep here. We value our ranch’s story, and the atmosphere of simplicity that has always been here for our guests. That will never change.
We cherish the distinct importance of this property on a global level; its’ rich biodiversity supports literally hundreds of species of birds, mammals and plants. We have strong beliefs in land conservation and preserving this unique space for future generations to appreciate and to learn from. Teaming up with the Arizona Land and Water Trust, more than half of our property is preserved under a conservation easement.
We cherish that we are recognized worldwide for bird watching throughout the ranch and on the adjacent Patagonia Nature Preserve. The ever-flowing Sonoita Creek provides a lush riparian habitat for migratory birds as well as for birds coming north from Mexico to nest. Whether or not you are a birder, you also cherish the red cardinals that stand out so vibrantly in the desert.
