I spent 2 days on a weekend escape from Dar es Salaam and thoroughly enjoyed myself at Lake Manze Tented Camp. Bakari and Mgoma, the guide and driver assigned to me were professional, friendly, and skilled in finding wildlife and sharing expertise on what I was looking at. I appreciated their attentiveness to not only my photography and viewing, but... More

We had a great time, highly recommend! I wasn't sure what to expect with the tent but it was great, lovely big bed and flushing toilet and shower. Loved being able to look up at the sky whilst having a shower! We were very well looked after and it was nice having dinner with other guests so you could all... More

We just returned from a 3 week Tanzania safari where we visited 6 parks and camps. Lake Manze had great food, but our guide left a lot to be desired. Maybe it was the time of year (we had gone previously to the Selous later in the season previously many years ago in October and while we didn't see a... More

We booked this trip very last minute and towards the end of the season. I had been to the Serengeti and many other safari destinations in Africa and, aside from the Okavango delta, I think this was the most unpopulated trip that we took. We had several game drives and would see another truck about once a day. Of course... More

Booked this very late as we only decided to go to Selous about 10 days before we left for Dar es Salaam and wanted something nearby. What an amazing 3 days we had. The scenery was unparalleled and despite being apprehensive about being right in the thick of it with no electricity and only a couple of zips and a... More

Lake Manze was a lovely place to stay, very relaxing with a great variety of things to do. The tents are fitted out well and nicely situated, it’s certainly spine tingling to lie in bed and hear the unearthly sounds of hyenas calling just outside the tent. The game drives were really enjoyable. Great game viewing, particularly in view of... More

We stayed three days at the Manze Lake Tented Camp and had a wonderful time. We liked the accomodation in a really confortable tent without electricity which is really romantic. Triscia and Phil are really good organizers, they explain everything, are always at your disposal, bring people together for the safaris and the dinners which take place at a big... More

It is all true what the other reviews say: this lodge is unique and will make your trip to Selous an unforgettable experience. Weather does not really matter, we saw amazing wild life in both rain and sunshine. Staff are super friendly and knowledgable. The food was very nice and all trips set up with a keen eye for detail... More

We came expecting a rainy few days in February, but the weather held off and we were treated to an amazing experience. All of the staff were incredibly nice and provided incredible service. The diversity of activities meant that we were never bored. The guides on the walks, on the game drives, and in the boat tours were all well-informed,... More

Wow, Surreal, to be there with all the wildlife. I was in awe everyday. Great hosts and staff, very well organized and informative. Highly recommended. The guides were amazing, Peter and Ai (sorry Ali I know that is your last name) very knowledgeable.
