Sausage Tree Safari Camp is a great place to get not only the Safari experience, but also a nice relaxing time. There is very good wifi access, but the environment is so nice, that you just feel like not using it. There are not so many guests and you can share with the other guests in a natural family way,...

Sausage Tree Safari Camp went above and beyond my expectations. It was the most perfect safari experience that I could have asked for. Firstly, the camp only sleeps 10 people. Therefore, you get a very intimate experience where you get to know the staff as well as the other guests. Secondly, the camp itself is very nice. You sleep in... More

This family operated safari camp pride itself on the warm atmosphere and African safari tented accommodation it offers. Enjoy lantern lit dinners in our boma or open deck under the star studded African sky. 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
