My husband and I spent the last bit of our honeymoon at Sausage Tree, and we could not have picked a better place to end the trip. Sonja, James, and Jason were the most amazing hosts while we were at the camp, as were Mildred, Josephine, and Mildred, the three pups :D Liam, James, and Themba took us out on... More

The hospitality, the warm welcome, we just feel like coming home, of Jason & Sonja, the beautiful place in the middle of the bush, delicious food, nice & cosy tents. Liam, who not only bring us to the animals, but also learns us a lot of them, Themba, the best spotter ever (I wish I had your eyes :-)) !... More

We had 4 nights here and could have done more. Safari drives twice a day, great food, friendly atmosphere, lovely rooms... there were so many positives and nothing to suggest they change. Oh, I suppose I should add numerous lions, rhinos, elephants, a leopard... everything we could have hoped for.

Liam and Temba were a great tracking team and got us awesome sightings of all of the Big 5 as promised! This included two leopard sightings which was... More

We stayed 3 nights at Sausage Tree and at the end we were sad to leave. We arrived a little bit early, but it was no problem at all. We were kindly greeted by Richard (co-owner) and their sweet dogs. The accommodation is fantastic, the tents are excellent, it was more a room than a tent. Due to the tent... More

Hearing the lions roar while sleeping makes you feel like you're camping; however, the beautiful, comfortable tent accomodations make you feel like you're at a resort! The food was particularly good; they made special meals for my daughter, who is vegan. Watching the wildlife from the deck of the lodge between safaris became addicting. We saw all of the big...
