Explore the Natural Beauty

Of our Pristine Property

The beauty of Southern Arizona is astounding, and here at the Circle Z Ranch you have the opportunity to experience unspoiled, native landscapes. Whether birding, riding, or taking in one of our many guided educational tours, you will leave the ranch with a deeper appreciation and understanding of desert life. We have preserved over 2 miles of the ever-flowing Sonoita Creek, where the riparian zone intersects with adjoining canyons and desert scrub, supporting an array of plants, mammals, and reptiles. Experience nature as the natives did, where you can almost hear the footsteps of the Sobaipuri tribes and the Spanish missionaries. Truly a national treasure!
