We stayed here in December, just after Christmas and had a fantastic time. Brilliant wildlife experiences, particularly lion and wild dog. The guides were excellent and great fun (Thanks Giovanni and Ally - we had a great time). If young get a chance take the all day safari option to the hot pools - it was just incredible and felt like we were in the garden of Eden when on the high plateau with wildlife as far as the eye could see. When on a drive by the river we saw a crocodile take a massive warthog which had fallen down the bank. The speed of it was awesome and a little reminder of what nature was all about!
Good tented accommodation and food. The camp is open to wildlife so you are escorted by the Masai warriors as Ellies tend to want to join you for meals! The boat trips are great for hippos, crocodiles and bird life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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! ... more less
