Right from the start we received a very warm welcome. The staff was very kind and professional. The food was excellent and varied. The game drives were informative and the guides themselves will answer any questions. They go out of their way to please your eyes and make your trip memorable. We would highly recommend this lodge to anyone who... More

This was our first safari. Unable to get into Kruger National Park due to school holidays, we booked a lodge in a private reserve adjoining the park. We have never made a better decision. At first, we thought we could not afford to do this, but once we realized that Sausage Tree included all meals and two 3-4 hour game... More

We really liked Sausage Tree because: it was small -- just 5 tents, max 10 pax; accommodation was very comfortable -- roomy tents that were more like canvas chalets than tents; game guides and trackers were very knowledgeable, persistent and enjoyable to spend time with. Food was OK, not great, but we were there when the main chef was on... More

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

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.
