Welcome to Arizona’s Circle Z Ranch
Since 1926, the Circle Z Ranch has welcomed guests to the traditions and beauty of our pristine Arizona property. We create unique, all-inclusive horseback riding vacations for visitors of all ages and riding abilities.
Guided by expert wranglers, our guests ride through unspoiled landscapes rich in scenery, enjoying the grasslands, canyons, and mountain ranges that rise suddenly and dramatically out of the desert lowlands. Distinct to our ranch property is the protected and ever-flowing Sonoita Creek, creating a lush riparian oasis.
The main ranch property is home to our historic cottages, our main lodge, and a variety of amenities and activities for the enjoyment of our guests. Tennis, an outdoor pool, nature walks, guided astronomy nights, yoga stretching, and hiking are some of the activities available. We also have facilities for horse gymkhana games, weekly cookout rides, and calf roping demonstrations.
Delicious, mouthwatering meals are a hallmark of a stay at Circle Z Ranch. Prepared in our kitchens using fresh, local ingredients, our buffet offerings at all three daily meals leave guests more than satisfied.
At the end of the day, relax in one of our seven adobe cottages, meticulously detailed for each stay. We have accommodations for singles, couples, and families, all furnished in colourful southwestern decor.
Circle Z Ranch has been owned and operated by the Nash family since 1976, and our down-to-earth style is reflected in our friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Guests are also hosted by the Lorta family, who have been helping to care for the ranch for over 40 years. Whether traveling alone, with family, or with friends, our guests quickly become part of the Circle Z family.
