Excitement at Lake Manze Camp

Unexpectedly a young Elephant walks straight through the dining area one afternoon. It’s one of those priceless moments when nobody has a camera ready. Luckily we could get some pictures after the fact. What happened to its trunk was a discussion point but without any evidence or knowledge we will never know.


Sitting down for lunch and a young male Lion walks past the dining room about 40 meters away next to the Lake. Wow. After giving a loud grunt he dashes off into the brush. Again nobody gets the shot. What an amazing unexpected experience that guests will cherish forever.

Winter sunsets are like the finger print of the bush. Everyday is extraordinarily different. You will never have two of the same.

Lion and Leopard sightings have been consistent over the month with very excited guests returning from game drives. The Manze pride of lions has been hunting on a regular basis which makes for some great memories and photo opportunities.


Safe travels

Thanks for an absolute wonderful time. Waking up to elephants and seeing a male Lion wander through at lunch will be memories I’ll never forget. Everything was fantastic top to bottom. I’ll be back.

Thank you Milli and Shaun for arranging a fantastic holiday. We can leave relaxed and well cared for. The game drives were excellent and met all our expectations. And a big thank you to the elephant who came down to say goodbye as we we were leaving on our final morning. We will certainly recommend Lake Manze Camp to our friends.

Love Helen and Charlie


Thanks to the whole team at Lake Manze, but particularly to Joseph and Ally, our fantastic guides. We are still flabbergasted at how good you guys are at spotting the smallest or furthest of animals. Thanks for making this the very best of honeymoons.

To the amazing team of staff, guides and managers at Lake Manze, What an incredible stay at the camp. Our safaris were stunning and allowed us to see spectacular animals in their natural habitat. Samwel and Zahor were the perfect team for our family and even taught us words and songs in Swahili-such fun. We are sad to leave but hope to be back soon to this special place in the Selous.

Sincerely Catherine Jonash
