Lake Manze - Experience adventure! Keep it natural! Feel the thrills of having an elephant eating Doum palm seeds right outside your tent. Hear the sound of its rumbling stomach and see how tender a mother is to her calf. We have so much to learn from our animal friends, teachings that can help us create a better world. We keep everything as it was before we arrived and this is why animals use the camp as much as our guests. Experience this magical, romantic camp on the shore of the Lake Manze with stunning lake views from your own veranda. Experience the sunrise on a walking safari. Enjoy a delicious picnic bush breakfast or lunch during your game drive as you spot lions and wild dogs. Take a fishing trip on the lake. Get close and personal with hippos and crocodiles and thousands of exotic birds on a sunset boat safari. Delight in a sumptuous candlelight dinner on the lake shore to the symphony of the surrounding. You'll never want to leave!

I have lost count of the number of times I have visited Selous (I think it is at least five times) and Lake Manze Camp is far and away the best all round camp - for position, comfort, activities, food, safari experience and last but not least, value for money. Position - the

We visited Lake Manze with my friend on early January 2019 and stayed at the camp for 2 nights. Everything from Coastal Aviation airline company to the transportation to the camp site through the stay went so great. The flight was on time, people were professionals and very

This safari camp is amazing! Our hosts Sean and Millie are exceptional at making guests feel welcome and secure. We loved that when night fell, the camp was lit with lanterns and dinner was a magical experience under the stars. Be warned: if you are addicted to your cell

Hi again Thank you for your awesome review of the camp and your stay with us. Your many compliments will be carried over to the staff which will spurn them on to give even more. Veranda safaris give you the opportunity to feel the camp and it's surrounding with the daily visits from various animals passing through to enjoy the plentiful food around. Dinner under the stars and that get together feeling to discuss the days sightings over a cold one, is special as you meet new friends from all walks of life. We hope to see you again one day. Safe travels. Shaun, Milli and the Lake Manze Camp team.

If you want to genuinely experience the African bush, Lake Manze is the place to be. The location is perfect, situated next to a lake that ensures all types of animals wander through the camp in search of water-there's a chance some of your best sightings will come to you!

I have the privilege of bringing a group of 8 women to Lake Manze camp in November 2018. Our safari started immediately on our drive from the airstrip to camp, with sightings of elephant and giraffe, impala and numerous beautiful birds. At camp, we were lucky enough to be met

Hi John and Linda We do have Skype in the office that you could use which obviously depends on signal. If your phone has roaming it should be able to work or alternatively to get an Airtel sim card in Dar es Salaam as that is the network that works here in certain spots. Hope this helps. See you soon. Shaun and Milli

Hi There is always a chance to hear the Lions but it obviously depends where the Lions are at that time and if they are calling. They can move many kilometers in a day or night and could be very far from camp. Unfortunately no guarantees. It really depends on the amount of guests in camp. We have eight four seater and two six seater vehicles. Hope this helps Safe travels. Shaun and Milli .

"All the tents seem well situated, but some people will be more thrilled than others to see animals by their tents."
"The tents are super nice and they have real beds there, so don't worry about sleeping in the grown feeling cold and unconfortable."
"All the tents are similar, but some have large trees, offering some shade in the afternoon."
"All the tents are situated in excellent positions. We stayed in Tent 2 which had a view of the Lake."
"Le tende sono tutte uguali e posizionate benissimo fronte lago"
