Situated on a pristine tropical dry forest surrounded by La Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta (A Snowy Mountain Range), lies Mamancana Private Game Reserve. A conservation project dedicated to wildlife rehabilitation, awareness and preservation of bio-diversity. With over 1,482 acres of land, we share our space with a host of wild animals and different plants species and through careful management of the environment have encouraged the return of many endemic species. Over the past 25 years we have been working hard to preserve our land to be able to offer our guests the opportunity to experience the varied, yet specialized eco-systems that call Mamancana Mountain home.
Deep within the Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta lies the heart of the world, a link to Mother Earth. Where your spiritual and ecological sense is needed to truly understand why this magnificent place is so closely tied to the tribes that inhabit the place.
Mamankana is an indigenous Arhuaco word that defines the Sacred Land. A place in the highest peaks of the snowy mountain range, where four lakes dwell: Blue, Red, Black and Green where the indigenous Mamos (spiritual leaders of the village) pay tribute and perform spiritual rituals.
