We loved staying at the Sausage Tree safari camp. The accomodation was comfortable with all luxury you need for a nice stay. We for example loved the outdoor shower. The staff is very friendly and can cook extremely well. The game drives are good and the rangers know literally the area, the animals and the vegitation by heart. Thank you... More

This was the first place I booked when planning our trip to South Africa, based on the reviews here on tripadvisor. We stayed at two other lodges in South Africa and Sausage Tree was by far our favorite. Very laid back atmosphere. We had a great time hanging out with the staff and other guests. All the meals were amazing.... More

During our South Africa round trip we chose several lodges, but the experience at Sausage Tree Camp we rate best of all. Nice tent accomodation, very good food, friendly staff and the best game drives with well informed ranger and tracker. Thank you Liam and Themba.

The extensive knowledge of the guides was impressive. My husband, daughter and I were treated as personal guests in this intimate... More

Our first stay at Sausage Tree was beyond our wildest dreams. From the moment we arrived for our 4 day stay, we were treated like family. James, Sonja and their staff are extremely professional, generous, and knowledgable. The food was spectacular. The safari tents, very beautiful. The animal sightings were endless and kept getting better each day. The Big 5....AMAZING!... More
