This place is exactly what we were looking for. Wild, intimate and stunning. The super friendly staff made sure that we felt more than at home. We saw some very exciting wild life. Most memorable was an encounter with a very active pride of lions. Can’t wait to go back!

Every aspect of our four-day stay was simply perfect. We had a brilliant time, from the friendly welcome on arrival, to the sad moment when we had to leave. The camp and surroundings are very beautiful, and it is a very peaceful place to just chill out during the day and watch the activity around the waterhole. The game drives... More

We had a wonderful family vacation at Sausage Tree that exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived we were warmly greeted and we felt comfortable immediately. The service was great! Jason continually remembered each of our preferences (even the ice for Mary's sore foot), setting an impossibly high bar for me for the rest of our trip! The food... More

We arrived at Sausage Tree to the warmest of welcomes. We were embraced by James and Sonia and the relaxed ambiance of Sausage Tree. The entire experience was focused on allowing the wilds to come to us and see how gently brutal and beautiful nature can be. Little else matters. James and Themba's clear respect for the animals and the... More

My two young adult daughters and I stayed at Sausage Tree for three nights in May and we were thrilled with our visit from beginning to end.

Sausage tree is a really spectacular place. I found our ranger and tracker extremely knowledgeable ( and I am a evolutionary biologist) and the game sightings were spectacular. The lodge was extremely hospitable. Sausage tree really delivers the traditional African bush experience. All in all I would highly recommend it.

Richard, Jason and Liam took tremendous care of us during our stay at Sausage Tree. The camp is a small one with capacity for 12 guests total, so the experience is almost assured to be an intimate one. However, the attention to your personal preferences and needs by the staff really takes the experience above and beyond. From paying close... More

We stayed at Sausage Tree for three nights and completely loved it! The food and service were top notch. The tents were very comfortable and luxurious, but still made you feel close to nature. The location was also lovely. Even from the dining table, we saw impalas, warthogs, and zebras. According to the staff, it's possible to even see elephants... More
