We recently drove, yes drove up to Selous from Dar for a long weekend. Staying at Sable Mountain was a great find. They put us in the Family cabin, which I would highly recommend, and had one of the more beautiful views I have ever seen. The camp is rustic, but very well done. The cabin was atop a massive hill and amazing. It was incredibly quiet. Also they are an ecofriendly lodge, which was very cool. Solar power and drinkable water, so no generator. The quiet was really lovely. The chef is amazing, and they were very accomodating to our vegetarian in the group. There was only one other guest staying at the lodge, and the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. On the safari, Rama, also the manager guided us. Having lived a number of years in Africa, I have never seen animals as upclose as we did, and with as few tourists as there were. Fantastic safari, and the boat ride is essential. The only complaint I would have is the driving directions, which were given by the office in Dar were entirely incorrect and missing essential turns, making our drive much more frustrating than it needed to be. Otherwise, amazing trip!
- 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
