Right from the start we were treated like royalty-warm face cloth along with a drink greeted us from a very friendly staff. We were then shown to our accommodation which was amazing with an incredible unobstructed view of the jungle from your room or from an outdoor tub/shower. We had a great time conversing with the staff throughout our stay.

Belonging to Tent With a View Company in Tanzania, this is a great place to stay in Selous. Enormous value for your money with very personalized attention. Selous is also a very diverse lesser known Natural Park with much less tourists around. The rooms in the Sable Lodge are just great!

The food was very good, the staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. On our safari we saw a pride of lions, endless amounts of hippos, giraffes, zebras and wart hogs. There is no internet...

We arrived on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful Christmas here. The staff went out of their way to make it a special time and set up an early morning bird walk and festive evening buffet. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local wildlife. We saw some amazing animals on our game drive and would recommend this if...

Our flight from Dar ES Saalam with costal aviation was faultless. The flight has fantastic views and when we landed at Matawab grass airstrip we were met by friendly staff in a Land Rover waiting to take us to our accommodation.

The adventure began with a 12-seater plane flight from Dar es Salaam to an airstrip in Selous Game Reserve which took about 40 minutes. We were met by guides/rangers with Land Rovers and taken to Sable Mountain Lodge about 20-30 minutes drive away. Our rooms at the Lodge were brilliant! Great views during the day and at night you could...

This was my third stay at the sable mountain lodge with yet another part of my family (5 altogether this time). Again the genuine African environment, the perfect service and the delicious food made our visit an authentic and pleasant experience.

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
