News from Lake Manze

November 11, 2016

 Hearing the roar of a majestic male lion echo across the camp early in the morning enhances the fact that we are settled deep in the African bush. Seeing the lions from the dining room at Lake Manze Camp, you know that you are in the unspoilt area of the Selous Game Reserve.




What an amazing experience to see Manze pride on the move on the outskirts of camp close to the lake with guests that are gobbling their breakfast down just to get out there to get the shot that creates the memories.

Twice in one month. Fantastic! The two young males from the Manze pride that left last season came for a quick visit one evening to the delight of all our guests. Their roar was heard later that evening as they were calling each other.


 Hamerkop nest


The different types of bird nests that you find in the Selous are fascinating. We found the Hamerkop close to the water with his amazing nest close by.

 Warthog at Lake Manze


It seems that a warthog has moved into Lake Manze camp area as he has been hanging around camp for the last few weeks with not a care in the world, chomping away on his knees.

 Laygos attends a staff meeting


Laygos has been around a lot and can be seen having a staff meeting one morning. It is very special to have the big puppy around so frequently.
