Elephants are the fertilizers of Africa, distributing the seeds of many a flora around the savannahs and plains. Without these gentle giants and their distribution our landscapes could be so different.

ion activity and sightings have been prolific from Lake Manze camp lately, with three prides spotted in the area, totalling twenty-four lions spread about in different places during the full day safaris. It is great to see so many young lions learning their trade.

Beautiful shot of a leopard passing elephants near Lake Manze - by Rhys Thatcher


One of our guests was in the right place at the right time to capture this elusive leopard as it sauntered past some elephants. An awesome picture and a fantastic sighting by Rhys Thatcher.

One hyena on the prowl is fabulous to see but when you spot a whole clan lazing about you realize their unique beauty.



Guide Kalisti Paul caught this African wild dog on camera - the dogs are always popular and often present in the Manze area. The Selous holds the largest number of this species - Lycaeon pictus - in the world.
