Description
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 More 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. Less

The owner should consider a new car for pickup

We stayed as part of an organised tour group, which may explain some of the minor niggles that we had with this venue.

But first, the good stuff! The location is incredibly scenic, and right on the doorstep of Selous game reserve, with wildlife literally (a baboon, in my case!)

Hi. Are all activities provided with the cost or do we pay extra for the actual outings? Also, we will be in arusha before and will fly to Dar and then how do we get down to selous? What airline or taxi do we take?
Hi Barbara, you can book either full board or game package at Sable Mountain Lodge. If you book full board, you can decide which safaris to do on the ground and pay directly at the lodge for safaris and park fees. Or you can book game package which includes full board accommodation (breakfast, lunch & dinner each day) + safaris each day - you then just need to pay park fees on top. As regards getting there. You can go by train but only on Tuesdays at 1550 or Fridays at 1350. The train takes 4.5 hours from Dar-Kisaki in Selous. On any other day you will fly from Dar-Selous (50 mins) on a schedule flight. Our office in Tanzania can advise further and book everything you need. Please send me your email address so that I can ask the office in Tanzania to contact you directly or call tjem on +255 713 323318 and they will give you their email. This tripadvisor portal does not allow me to give the email address. Many thanks.

Can you transfer us from Zanzibar and make a safari for one night
Its possible to get me from zanzibar and transfer me for safari
is the selous game reserve inclusive inthe hotel accomodation ? or the should i pay fees for the park?
How easy isit to charge up camera batteries at any of accommodation in Sable Mountain Lodge. I have 2 cameras, one camera the battery is charged on a normal separate charger plugged in to socket and my other camera battery is charged wthout taking the battery out ( the whole camera is on
Although I will be with a guide in my party, as a single traveler, how safe is it to wonder alone on beaches in Tanzania and Zanzibar during the day. However, I will try and team up with another single person if there is one.
