Morani River Ranch

Uvalde, Texas

The Morani River Ranch is a private 3,500-acre exotic game ranch located on the Nueces River in the south Texas Hill Country. The compound consists of the Main Lodge, a three-suite bunkhouse, a gazebo with pool and a private residence for the owner. An enclosed courtyard containing a water fountain and lush native landscaping provides a serene outdoor setting between the two structures. The Main Lodge is designed around the Great Room which houses most of the owner’s hunting trophies. It contains a bar, movie theatre, diorama loft for the display of game, a formal dining room, and a commercial kitchen. All spaces overlook the lake to the south. All ranch buildings are designed in a contemporary Texas vernacular utilizing indigenous materials. The Pavilion, designed for outdoor entertaining, includes a full exterior kitchen setup adjacent to the swimming pool and hot tub.
