Sable Mountain Lodge is a fabulous base from which to explore the Selous Game Reserve. Its en-suite tented bandas and stone cottages are built on a hill with stunning views over the Uluguru Mountains.
It is just outside of the Selous Game Reserve and game viewing takes place inside or just outside the park. You can choose to take a picnic lunch and head off on a full day game drive in the park, perhaps to Lake Manze or maybe to Lake Tagalala to include a boat safari. Selous is the largest reserve in Africa and offers exciting wilderness and wildlife experiences yet it remains one of the least visited of the great game sanctuaries on the continent.
You can also go on walking safaris and, if you want to get to know a bit about the local people, you can be taken to a local Maasai village. This is really non-touristy and a delightful, as well as insightful, experience. If you want to experience the bush in depth, you can go fly-camping in Selous Reserve, where you stay deep in the bush and sleep on platforms under the stars.
Apart from the excellent safari experiences you can expect here, the lodge is a welcoming place offering good food and friendly service, a swimming pool, comfy beds and hot showers. We get really good feedback about Sable Mountain, which is why we recommend it.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews
The tented banda accomodation was great, with a good view across the treetops to the mountains in the distance. The bathroom is very basic, but perfectly adequate, the large double bed very comfy. We had one evening visitor - a bat, but he was easily persuaded to go back outside. We loved the 'Landrover's Return' - the bar area made from the first landrover the camp used. The food was very good - though mostly quite European. We would have liked to perhaps try something different (though if you weren't careful the mantis landed on your plate!) All the trips were well organised, everything seemed to run like clockwork, until we had a tremendous thunderstorm just as we were to sit down to dinner. The staff were amazingly efficient at moving all the things off the dining table whilst the wind and rain howled through the verandah, then it was replaced as if nothing had happened within minutes of the storm abating. Brilliant. The picnic on the boat surrounded by crocodiles and hippos is quite an experience too.
