Lake Manze Adventure Camp opened in 2007 on a prime location overlooking Lake Manze, which is one of the more northerly of a series of lakes and rivers within a rich alluvial floodplain of the Rufiji River. Set in a grove of borassus, doum and wild date palms, it lies at the heart of Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve, and was set up as a deliberately rustic camp to provide guests with fairly simple comforts and a strong sense of wilderness.

Our view of Lake Manze Camp

Lake Manze Camp is a great option for those wanting a slightly more rustic experience, that's a bit more like real camping, yet with all the basic comforts and good food. We found the staff and managers to be friendly and efficient, and – because Lake Manze is quite far from any other camps – you rarely see other vehicles while on a drive. Partly hosted, in that the managers often eat with guests, and with a great atmosphere, it’s also among the more affordable of the camps in the reserve, and we think it delivers great value for money.
