Essential Destinations - Selous G.R. - Lake Manze Wild Dogs

Lake Manze Tented Camp December 2014 most exciting sighting: after a stormy night some of our guests woke up to the sight of a pack of 15 Wild Dogs taking down a big male impala in front of tent 4. Unfortunately the wild dogs got weary of the onlookers and ran off after having only eaten half of their impala but they were seen again later that morning on the game drives and the had killed another impala. Unfortunately they didn’t have much better luck with that kill as it was stolen from them by some hyenas. In the video some individual in greetings ritual and submission display.

July 2017, Selous G.R.: on every travelers mind and lips are the elusive Lions. We are quite fortunate at Lake Manze Camp that there are various prides scattered throughout the area that are spotted on regular occasions that give fantastic photo opportunities to all our guests. The variety of antics is what encapsulates them. Lazing on their backs, pedicure on a tree or the long treks to find food. Your camera is the one that captures these amazing animals into prosperity.

Selous G.R, September 2017: Elephants are the fertilizers of Africa, distributing the seeds of many a flora around the savannahs and plains. Without these gentle giants and their distribution our landscapes could be so different. We pay homage for their relentless work in keeping their part of the eco systems flourishing.

Essential Destinations - Lake Manze - Lioness calling by guide Zacharia Mligo

Selous, February 2017: the Manze pride was seen next to the main road after gorging themselves on a Kudu while on their trek back the Lake Manze. Special to see how the mother gives the young cubs the duty of preparing the meal before the feast. It seems they still have a lot to learn including the art of patience. In this video the mother lion calling.

Essential Destinations - Lake Manze - Hippo drinking from the bird bath

Selous, February 2017: Our large hippo friends are normally found in the Lake as they laze about in pods with their extended families. One late afternoon this hippo came to visit us in camp as it slowly ambled up to the bird bath for drink. One of those right place, right time moments.
