The camp is located in the Selous Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in Africa and is situated near Lake Manze. On the one hour transit to the camp from Siwandu airstrip, one is introduced to the beautiful plains of Selous and its assorted birds and wildlife. The Lake Manze area is very rich in game, both in the dry and wet season. Doum palms and Terminalia offer shade to the twelve tents which are well spread out and with good views of the lake. Each tent has an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and hot shower and is furnished with twin or double beds. There are solar operated fans. The tents are spacious with a comfortable veranda to watch the animals passing by. One extra single bed can be added to make a triple tent, and also two of the tents can be turned into a family tent with an extra room with twin beds added on the front of the tent in place of the verandah.
Children up to 6 years are not advised to come to Lake Manze because of the proximity of wild animals wandering freely through the camp.
Located on the banks of the lake, guests get a chance to observe families of hippos, sunbathing crocodiles, elephants, feeding herons and much more. Game safaris are carried out in 4WD vehicles which take max 4- 6 guests and the drives are not limited to a specific schedule but tailor made to clients’ wishes. Boat safaris are carried out in the calm waters of the lake. Fishing or an early morning walk with an armed ranger are also available and are a rewarding experience to bring one closer to the beauty of the Selous. Fishing is available and is charged at USD 10 per rod (3 fish max)
