1.Lake Manze Camp
Lake Manze Camp a Mid-range Accommodation Nyerere NP is what a “roughing it” camp is all about. They originally chose the location of the camp, on the shores of Lake Manze. This is for the prolific game that is resident in the area. In the camp itself, they regularly have bull elephants wandering through, munching on the palm nuts that fall in-between the tents.
The tents themselves are simple with running water, showers, and comfy double/twin beds in each. They also have a veranda area out at the front from which to watch the elephants and the world go by. There are no real frills to talk of. However, they have just what you need to make the most of this stunning area. This is a Mid-range Accommodation Nyerere NP
Again, the communal areas are fairly simple and the food, likewise, is wholesome rather than gourmet….but this all just adds to the charm of the place. The focus in Lake Manze Camp, a Mid-range Accommodation Nyerere NP is on the experience of the game and the service. All of the staff are really welcoming and friendly and, at the end of the hard day out in the bush, it is great to be able to relax with a G&T around the campfire….this is what being out in the bush is all about!
Rufiji River Camp
The camp is Mid-range Accommodation Nyerere NP set on the eastern side of the Selous. As it is up on the elevated banks of the Rufiji River, the camp benefit from beautiful and exclusive views. This is out to the mighty river which dominates the Selous.
They redesign the camp to complement its location on a promontory in the river bank. With 14 en-suite tents (11 standard tents and 3 suites), although Rufiji River Camp is larger than most of the intimate tented camps in the Selous, the rooms are spaced out well across the banks of the river and the communal areas – the dining area, lounge and swimming pool, are all very spacious.
The canvassed tents themselves are sat on a raised platform of hardwood flooring and pitched under a Makuti palm roof. This gives the room a little more of a structure than just the canvassed tents, which appeals to some people! Each room has an appointed en-suite bathroom with solar-powered showers and running water, as well as a huge private veranda that overlooks the Rufiji. The camp has 3 suites which are perfect for families as a shared walkway and private plunge pool connect two rooms.
Boating safaris are done in flat bottomed boats and are the perfect way to relax in the serenity of the river, even as you pass pods of hippos and giant crocodiles on the banks. Open-sided vehicles take guests out on half or full-day game drives and are a great way to see the big animals. Game walks are for those looking for the smaller things… the footprints, the sounds, and the bug life… although never rule out seeing the bigger game on foot which is a memorable experience.
3. Siwandu Impala Camp
It is a Mid-range Accommodation Nyerere NP set to the east of the famed Siwandu region of the park. Impala is located on the outer edge of a bend in the Rufiji River which affords it sweeping views up and down the river. On the whole, the game viewing in this area is very reliable and, is set slightly away from the main game-viewing area. It allows it to feel a little more secluded than properties like Siwandu and Manze.
As with all of the properties in the Selous, Selous Impala Camp has made the most of its location along the banks of the Rufiji River with all of the 8 tents featuring views out across the river and seclusion from those around. With a good-sized swimming pool and a great dining area and bar looking out over the river, it is a good way to spend a few nights in the bush!
The large tents that they use for the property have plenty of room inside. They are set on their own decking, each with a verandah and views out over the Rufiji River. While these are standard canvas tents, they are well ventilated and have ensuite facilities that keep them cool and comfortable.
Selous Impala Camp is definitely one of the better properties for those that want to concentrate on their safari experience with very experienced guides for walking, boating and game driving activities…The guest can choose any.
