Every meal has a surprise, something new and something you probably have never enjoyed before. You can tell the ownership and staff truly care... More

We decided to try a Dude Ranch last minute and couldn't have been happier. This Ranch is the Real Deal...They have amazing horses that are well cared for. The Guides (Wranglers) were excellent. The food just kept coming...and all meals were amazing. We are already talking about when we can fit in another stay. My only real piece of advice... More

We had an outstanding, fabulous, fun, delicious and relaxing time at the Circle Z. The owners were so open and welcoming. The Wranglers were terrific and easy going. We loved the views riding through the mountains and on the open plains. It was just spectacular. I would totally do this again.

The Circle Z Ranch is an amazing place to stay for any occasion. If you want to ride horses, take nature hikes, birding trips, do day trips around beautiful Southern Arizona, meet fun and interesting people, eat some of the best food around, sit around a bonfire and sing songs, or sit near the fireplace and talk with other guests...

We have been coming to circleZ for 20 years because the riding is awesome, the scenery is spectacular, there is good food and lots of it (maybe too much!) and we always meet nice people there. Plus the family that manages the horses and riding are wonderful.
