Selous Game Reserve camps - Lake Manze Tented Camp

Lake Manze Tented Camp

Lake Manze Camp is the sister camp to Selous Impala camp and Old Mdonya in Ruaha. The camp has 12 meru style tents all with lake views, slightly raised on earth mounds which are covered in bush vegetation.

Unlike many of the other camps and lodges in the Selous, Lake Manze has decided, to a degree, to go primitive, coping with no electricity and using simple candles and lamps, although this is rather contradicted by having flush loos and running water in your bathrooms. Still, you are allowed a few luxuries in the bush. It is a much more low key version of Impala Camp, with no frills but this is reflected in the low price.

Dining at the camp is a delightfully casual affair, which is great as there are often uninvited, but not unwelcome guests turning up to have a peek at your food. These inquisitive elephants are a poignant reminder of just how much wildlife there is around.

Game drives and boat tours are the highlight here, and you’re sure to get a good dose of viewing in as the lake is one of the most game rich parts of the Selous.

It is a fun camp to visit and more for the adventurous and do not be surprised if you are visited by the resident elephants and hippos of an evening.
