Lake Manze Camp is in one of the richest areas for game in the whole of Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve. The camp has 12 tents, all well-spaced apart offering a degree of privacy and all with good views of the lake. The tents are 'meru style' canvas with double zip-locking and mesh windows. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and hot shower. The tents are spacious, with twin or double beds and a comfortable veranda from which to watch the animals passing by.

Frequent visitors to the lake include hippos, crocodiles, elephants, herons and many more. The simple thatched sand-floor sitting area overlooks the lake, so it is good for chilled out game viewing!

Meals are taken in the thatched lodge during the day and out under the stars in the evening weather-permitting. Private dinners on your own veranda can be arranged, as can bush meals.

Game safaris are taken in 4x4 vehicles which take no more than 4 guests at a time. The drives are not limited to a specific schedule but tailor made to your wishes. You can also take boat rides on the calm waters of the lake. They last for about 2 hours are a lovely alternative way to enjoy the wildlife and wilderness of the park. An early morning walk with an armed ranger is also possible, and it’s a rewarding way to experience the beauty of the Selous, taking time to see some of the smaller things you tend to miss when in jeeps.
