Lake Manze Camp is situated on the banks of Lake Manze. The area is one of the richest in terms of game in the entire Selous, both in the dry and the wet season.
The camp's Meru style tents are canvas with double zip locking and mesh windows.
The tents are furnished with twin or double beds (an extra bed can be added to make a triple tent) and each tent has its own stone veranda, where guests can sit in a comfortable director's chair, making the most of the great views of the lake, and the animals that come down there to drink. Large mosquito-gauze windows on all sides of the tent allow the breeze to pass through, whilst keeping insects out.
The tents are carefully placed around the extensive camp area, with the lodge and dining area in the central section along the shores of Lake Manze, and each tent has a view towards the lake.
Activities on offer include game drives, boating and walking safaris.
On boating safaris, guests can expect to see hippo, crocodile, and other animals coming to drink, and about 40 species of birds. Some birds, like osprey, are more likely to be seen on the lake; others, like white-fronted bee eaters, are more numerous on the channel. Boat safaris last just over 2 hours and can be arranged in either the morning or the afternoon.
Game safaris take place in 4x4 vehicles. The full day drive usually goes towards the Beho Beho area, with a packed lunch. The vegetation in this area is different from the Manze area, being more open plains. In the afternoon a stop can be made at the Maji Moto hot springs.
An early morning walk with an armed ranger is also available and a rewarding experience to bring one closer to the beauty of the Selous. Walking safaris can be arranged either in the morning or the afternoon.
