Sable Mountain Lodge Sable Mountain Lodge

Sable Mountain Lodge blends seamlessly with its surroundings and is almost invisible from the air.
It is located over two small hills right on the northwest boundary of the Selous Reserve affording stunning views of surrounding miombo woodland, the plains of Selous as well as the distant Uluguru Mountains.

Selous Game Reserve is a World Heritage Site. At 56,000 square kilometres it is the second largest protected area in the world. The landscape is a combination of miombo forests, savannahs and thickets. It is particularly pretty in January and February, after the short rains of late November and December. At this time, the reserve looks stunning, a mosaic of open grassland and lush green trees - quite a contrast with the dry and dusty plains of the northern parks. By February, the reserve is full of young animals - a wonderful time to visit. The Selous experience is very much an exclusive one. It is possible to cover vast distances over several days of wonderful game viewing without passing another human soul.

Facilities at Sable Mountain Lodge

Hilltop restaurant and a unique bar area. Cool down in the freshwater swimming pool (the lodge has its own natural spring) or relax on the stone sunbathing terrace. Swimming pool water is recycled to a nearby watering hole where animals can be observed coming to regularly drink. A new, very comfortable, tree house complete with bar and library encourages longer vigils watching Sable's newest and most productive waterhole. Guests are welcome at 'The Landrover's Return' for a pre-dinner drink in Sable's unique atmosphere. This solar-powered lodge has a warm, intimate and relaxed ambience.

Accommodation at Sable Mountain Lodge

There are 4 en suite stone cottages and 5 en suite open-fronted tented rooms (or 'bandas'). There is also a two storey hilltop villa with 2 bathrooms (can accommodate 6 but can also operate as 2 separate units with own private entrance) from whose terrace, one can marvel at arguably the best view in Selous.

Board Basis at Sable Mountain Lodge
