We stayed at Sable Mountain Lodge for three nights as part of the VJV Secret Tanzania tour. We arrived after dark by train from Dar Es Salaam, which was an interesting experience. As we got off the train there seemed to be an army of people to help us with our bags and guide us to our vehicles. The walk...

We spent 3 nights at the Sable Mountain Lodge at the end of December '11. Flying out from Dar with the small plane touching ground in the middle of nowhere, already being a fantastic experience. Attentive staff waiting for us and our 40 mins. way to the lodge was already a small safari (elephants, monkeys, ...). We stayed in a...

A very different type of hotel set in the jungle on a hill. All rooms are quite widely spread out giving excellent privacy but a little walking involved to get there. We were lucky enough to be allocated one of the 2 honeymoon suites which was excellent but we heard from others in our party that one or two rooms...

Sable Mountain Lodge is greatly situated over the hill in the middle of the green forest. When we were there (beginning of July) it was just in the end of the rainy season and everything around was very green and cool.

From our booking and correspondence with Tents with a view via email, to the minute we were taken to the airstrip to leave Selous, the entire team, the venue, the people, the images, have been amazing to say the least.

This was the Safari phase of our 3 week honeymoon and the highlight of our trip. Located 20 mins away from the Selous NP Sable Mountain Lodge consists of a number of bandas (some stone, some canvas) scattered over a hillside. Interspersed amongst these are open plan dining/relaxing areas and a covered pool filled by springwater. The environmental impact is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The beautiful Sable Mountain lodge is set in the beho hills on the North Western boundary of Selous Game Reserve. The lodge is built over several hills giving a fantastic vantage point and, arguably the best view of the reserve. There is a combination of large and comfortable en suite tented rooms and stone cottages all private and all with great views. The freshwater pool provides a welcome on return from a safari. The nearby tree house and water hole attracts lots of game and a few hours can easily be spent there observing. Relax at the Land Rovers Return pub before dining in the restaurant or under the endless stars. The most special element about Sable Mountain is the team who are famous for their friendliness and will go the extra mile to ensure that you have a superb safari experience. ... more   less
