Lake Manze is a genuinely fantastic yet simple safari camp.  It has a prime position on the edge of a beautiful lake and is within shouting distance of pods of bathing hippo.  No electricity in the lodge gives it a rustic edge, yet its comfort and charm give it an old world gravitas that other camps can’t touch.  The camp is not about five star luxury, but in terms of safari and value for money, there are none better.
 

Lake Manze - The Facts 


A short 20 minute drive from the Siwandu airstrip (although we can guarantee you will be asking to take a longer route!), Lake Manze Tented Camp is an authentic, rustic safari camp nestled amongst Doum palm and Terminalia trees.  Its location is perfect; sitting nicely on the edge of Lake Manze with a well used elephant track meandering alongside the entire camp.
 
It is an area that boasts fantastic resident game and offers a more authentic safari camp style rather than pushing for every luxury.  The 12 tents are small but very comfortable, with lovely views over the river.  They all have en-suite bathrooms with refreshing, private, outdoor showers.
 
Less is more is Manze’s motto. The main area is a huge thatched roof spread over a sandy floor. Sofas and armchairs are scattered around making it a very comfortable setting to sit and have a gin and tonic after a hard day on safari!  At night, the kerosene lanterns come out to give the lodge a warm, adventurous Selous Safari feel.  Tanzania safari holidays don't come much more down to earth than Manze.
 
Game drives, walking safaris, boat safaris are all part of Lake Manze’s well rehearsed repertoire. They also offer fishing trips for interested guests, with the chefs eagerly awaiting your ‘catch of the day’ to put back on your plate for supper. One of our favourite Selous Safaris to date.

1 night at Lake Manze camp. The most colonial of our places. Simple but nice tents, a lovely elephant joining us for breakfast and a fantastic communal dinner under the stars.
