Eswe, Annie, Kevin made this trip what it was. They were all incredibly friendly, knowledgable and hospitable. The facilities were amazing and so were the game drives but I can say that we made some friends for life there.

Our stay at the Sausage Tree Safari Camp was amazing, very enjoyable and highly recommended. The safari guides (Kevin and Themba) were wonderful! Thanks to them we were able to spot lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, colourful birds and even hipos and a crocodile. The food is amazing, they have a very good chef that made our meals just perfect. Staff...

Had an amazing time at Sausage Tree! We stayed three nights and saw the Big Five within our first few game drives. We even saw a pack of 16 wild dogs which I'm told are one of the rarest sights in Kruger. James who is co-owner of the lodge did the drives himself, and was a very enjoyable and highly...

This review is actually almost a year overdue, out of sheer procrastination. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in early February 2016, and frankly, I ache to return to it one day! The camp staff and safari guides are tremendously friendly, kind and informative. The food is delicious and luxurious, and the accommodation is the most wonderful 'glamping'...

All the people running the camp could not have been nicer. We were greeted upon arrival and every time we returned from a trip. Andrea and Kevin were especially warm and welcoming. Accommodation is in individual huts that are tented under a solid roof with an en-suite bathroom and an outside shower. The treks into the park were superbly run...

Sunrise and sunset safaris in open 4x4 vehicles are the highlights of the day.The Safari Camp:Our African safari-styled tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Each tent is spacious and built in an elevated position with it's own special view. The tents are fully furnished and have their own private deck and ensuite bathroom with a bath and outdoor shower. Inverter or Eco based Air-conditioners are fitted in each tent ensuring that you stay cool during those warm summer nights... and can even be set to warm during those colder nights in winter. Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong. ... more   less
