Sable Mountain Lodge is a small and intimate lodge, where the emphasis is on warm hospitality in the heart of the wilderness.

Situated on the Beho Beho hillside are 8 delightful cottages, each providing style, comfort and modern amenities.  Each cottage boasts en suite bathroom facilities, 24-hour solar lighting, spring water supply and private veranda.  Here, you can sit and relax, and enjoy the fabulous views over the forest and towards the distant Uluguru Mountains.

In addition, there are 3 tented bandas, situated on raised wooden platforms to maximise the views, and 2 honeymoon suites with extra luxurious touches.  Each suite is open-faced, so you can lie in bed and enjoy fantastic, uninterrupted views.  Views over the forest can also be enjoyed from the wooden decking balcony.

There are several dining and drinking options at Sable Mountain Lodge, depending on which kind of accommodation you are staying in. 

For those staying in the tented accommodation, the restaurant is situated at the top of the hill, near the swimming pool, and offers fantastic views of the surrounding hills and valleys. 

For those staying in the cottages, the restaurant is close to the tree house, which overlooks a watering hole.  This open-air restaurant serves international dishes and has a well-stocked bar (with solar-powered fridge to ensure your drinks are always cool!)

All guests can enjoy swimming in the natural swimming pool, located at the top of the hill.  There is no better way to cool off from the hot midday sun than with a quick dip here!

The tree house overlooking the watering hole is a great place to spend some time in the evening, looking out for the elephant, buffalo and zebra which can often be spotted drinking there. 

There is also a lovely star-gazing snug at Sable Mountain Lodge.  Here, you can gaze at the beautiful, light-pollution free sky, and listen to the sounds of the bush.

Reviews & Testimonials of Sable Mountain Lodge

"great service and experience"

we spent 5 days in their capable hands and did two nights of fly camping. Expectations were exceeded, our driver/ guide (Rama) was awesome. You have to appreciate some of their challenges and they truly do everything they can, Go for the honeymoon cabin!

"Fantastic hospitality -n- safari for the experienced seeking remoteness"

Together with a friend I stayed 6 nights at Sable Mountain Lodge, of which 2 were spent fly-camping in the bush. We came in from Dar with the train going to Kasaki, where we were met at the train and taken to the camp for a late evening meal.
Taking the train (6h) and experiencing life along the rail road was in itself a colorful experience, that I recommend - and then fly out.

Selous is a place you want to choose for your safari if you want away from the crowds of jeeps and do the 'hunting' for sightings yourself - aided of course by your very skilled safari guide. Don't expect to get as close to the animals - apart form the lions, who do not care about you at all - as in the northern parks, as the wild life is less accustomed to vehicles, but then again this is the amazing thing about this place.

You have the option of doing morning/evening or full day safaris, fly camping (sleeping in the bush under the southern skies - bed, mosquito net of course is part of the package) and walking safaries. We saw lots of elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, buffalos, a group of 15 wild dogs, plus a wide range of different antelopes.

We enjoyed our stay at Sable Mountain immensely, excellent service from the staff wether at the lodge or while fly-camping, very tasty, hearty food (meat and veggies cooked to perfection). All cottages are located in undisturbed surroundings, we had a 'basic' stoen cottages, and a fan would have been nice some nights, however, as everything is run as 'green' as possible, that is not part of the set-up. Besides that minor detail, the stone cottage we had was very charming in a rustique way and met all are needs and requirements. We were offered a peek into one of the tented honeymoon suites - just gorgeous, that's the only way to describe it - no. 10, I believe - excellent view onto a dried out riverbed.

Last but not least, Tara and David, the owners, are just fantastic people and their company strongly contributed to making the evenings over dinner joyful and memorable.
