Lake Manza Camp is located in the Selous Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in Africa and is situated on the shores of Lake Manze - one of the richest areas for game in the entire Selous, both in the dry and wet seasons.
During the one hour transit to the camp which can be reached from Siwandu airstrip you will be introduced to the beautiful plains of Selous and its diverse birds and wildlife.
Lake Manze Camp has 12 "meru style" canvas tents with double zip locking and mesh windows. They 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.
Inside each large walk-in tent is a double or twin bed with a wrought-iron frame. There is also a lock-box for any valuables and a simple frame with canvas shelves designed as a wardrobe. Large mosquito-gauze windows on all sides of the tent allow the breeze to pass through, whilst keeping insects out.
There are two family tents at Lake Manze - they have a separate twin bedroom tent zipped on to the front of the main double bedroom,
in place of the Veranda. Both rooms share the bathroom at the back of the tent.
The main lodge is a cool and shady thatched buidling with a dining area and a sitting area overlooking the lake.
Masaai askaris will guide you between your tent and the lodge - especially at night time- as there is always game around.
The camp maintains a true simplicity. Whilst the camp is not luxurious it is certainly comfortable and you do feel like you are out in the wilderness. Elephants use the old, well-worn elephant trail which runs around the lake and right in front of the camp.
Dining at Lake Manze takes place in the thatched dining area in the daytime, and outside under the stars at night, with a campfire and Maasai to guard you. A private dinner can also be arranged for you on your tent veranda on request.
