Sable Alley is a very pleasant camp, and we enjoyed our time here. Kind staff, great baked goods, breakfast, and nice dinners - and truly fantastic game drives; we saw everything from African wild dogs, to a lion guarding his fresh kill from vultures, to a leopard dragging a bay antelope into the brush. And because this is a private reserve, we could get much closer (conditions permitting) than one can in a national park where driving is restricted to the existing roadways. I would give 4.5 stars if I could - the camp was really very good overall, and the staff worked hard to make everyone happy.

Beautiful camp. We were in the Honeymoon Tent, furthest down the boardwalk. A beautiful location with great views of the lagoon and animals. The main lodge has great seating for dining and watching the wildlife at the same time. Wide variety of food; excellent. The guides were very knowledgable and taught us a lot about the small details of the delta; water, geology, animals, and plants. They worked very hard to find us interesting animals and then we spent plenty of time just watching and photographing them.

We stayed at Sable Alley during early November and absolutely loved it! The staff was so incredibly welcoming and helped make our honeymoon special. They also went above and beyond to make sure my food allergy was carefully paid attention to.

The lodge itself is quite nice, with a spacious room and a nice central area for meals and lounging, including a pool. It lover looks a waterhole with quite a few resident hippos and was a busy area for game view- we saw elephants, zebras, baboons, and many more without even leaving the lodge!

The game viewing overall was spectacular- we saw tons of buffalo, hippos, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and different types of antelope. We also got to see lions, a leopard, and a pack of wild dogs (very special!). Our guide was great and helped make sure we saw tons of game. We would definitely recommend this lodge!

The location of the camp is fantastic. Opposite the water hole, you can watch hippos and elephants more less all day long.
I wouldn’t call it a very luxurious camp but certainly a very nice camp with absolutely impeccable service.
The friendliness of staff is outstanding and make this - together with the quality of the guides - the key highlight.
The guides, in particular Tony who was so patient and knowledgeable, but also Max and Zazou, are absolutely outstanding. They know what they are doing and will make your stay a unique experience.
The food is ok but we didn’t come with high expectations either. The high tea on the other is really nice and you will enjoy it.

Well equiped camp with good sized tents. Amazing location with direct view on a hippo-pool.

The food is good, the service too and most important, the private game reserve amazing with lots of animals. We had MD as our guide who did his job very well!

Be aware that this camp allows children which can be anoying in terms of noise. We had around 10 (very young) kids in one group and felt disturbed during lunch and dinner. Even in the tent we heard them good as we were neighbours. And the worst of worst was when they played soccer in the middle of the bush during a very nice sundowner aperitiv, offerd by the camp! Thats a shame and shouldnt be allowed.
