Moyo Hill Camp

The SFS Center for Wildlife Management Studies operates from Moyo Hill Camp (MHC) located in the Tarangire-Manyara ecosystem between Lake Manyara National Park and the famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This wonderfully scenic area is world-renowned for its beauty, geography, history, and wildlife. MHC is a fenced facility nestled among maize plantations and other crop fields. Students sleep among the native acacia and fig trees, and birdsong fills the air in the morning. The camp consists of multiple buildings including an administrative center, a chumba, which serves as an eating and social activity center, a classroom and library, a computer room, and student, faculty, and staff housing. MHC comprises part of a small community where students can enjoy daily interaction with neighbors. Walking, jogging, soccer, and socializing outside of the camp round out daily life at MHC.
