We were lucky enough to stay in No 15 Lower. A long hard treck after dinner but well worth it and by the end of my stay I didn't need to take a rest halfway up. Overweight & nearly 70 I had a fit when we were first shown where we were to sleep but honestly the view and the cool breeze made it worthwhile and when I return I want that cottage again.
The food was amazing I only wish I'd got the recipe for the veggie cake that I had instead of a fish cake starter. 5 courses every night just wonderful. The staff were great nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was lovely with balcony overlooking treetops and a wonderful view of distant mountain range. We could even drink the tap water and not a mosquito in sight.
We thoroughly enjoyed the safari and got really up close to all the animals including lions. The trip on Lake Tagalala where we saw hundreds of hippo, crocs and birds was a really great experience. The biggest surprise was the fact that we only saw 2 other vehicles all day. Jules Verne were correct, this really is Secret Tanzania.
- 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
