I'm not sure if words can express our gratitude to the Sausage Tree team for creating this once in a lifetime experience for us, this may be a long review! I'd had my eye on Sausage Tree Camp for a few years but my expectations were smashed through the roof. The rooms are just glorious, so beautifully designed with the highest quality furnishings and linen, and exquisite views from the deck and private plunge pool. The team here are beyond wonderful - effortlessly cheerful with fabulous topnotch service. Our guide Collins was professional, knowledgeable, respectful of the park and wildlife and his passion ran deep; he even managed to help me snag a 14lb tiger fish on day 2 🐯🐟. Barman Brian, always with a smile on his face kept us well watered with good wine and G&Ts. Our butler Arnold deserves a crown, the kindest gentleman whose attentiveness was impeccable but he made it seem effortless. If I looked up from my plate to ask for something, he'd already thought of it and it was there in front of me. They had the perfect balance of ensuring you have everything you need but without being in your face. We had the special treatment of a private dinner on our veranda and a candlelit bath drawn for us upon our return from our afternoon game drive; that and a decadent meal from the talented chefs topped off our day beautifully after having seen a leopard and her cub feeding just hours before. Thank you thank you thank you all for this exceptional and memorable time in our lives x

My adult son and I spent 4 nights at this extraordinary camp and it was amazing! Our cottage was beyond incredible with a living area, huge bedroom and bath. The patio was gorgeous with a large private pool and right on the river bank with awesome views! Phillip was our Butler and woke us each morning with coffee and tea, kept the rooms perfect and served us meals in the main camp lounge. It was our 3rd stop on this trip and this time another couple of ladies flew into camp with us. You can tell covid has really made it's mark on the traveler scene however all the camp personnel took the time to get to know you. We saw tons on the game drives, elephants popping out of the bush right in front of your truck, leopards, zebra and buffalo to say nothing of the hippos! Collins was our guide and did an amazing job! This camp also has lots of surprises with I will not spoil!

This was our first time in Zambia and at Sausage Tree, and it was wonderful. Charles, the Mgr., and his warm welcoming staff made our 50th Anniversary celebration a very exceptional experience, with their numerous surprise meal presentations. Being on the river was great for animal viewing and for nightly hippo serenades. The main lodge and "tent" chalets were very comfortable and exhibited African bush luxury at its finest. Our guide, Henry, was excellent in finding the wildlife that makes Africa so unique and special. After our 4 day sojourn, we felt we were part of the Sausage Tree family. Don't miss this camp and it's unique environs.

What a wonderful lodge. Again we were the only guests in camp and we were spoiled. One night after the game drive, I saw lights on in the middle of the bush and wondered what was going on, then I saw all the tables and chairs and realised that we were having dinner in the middle of the bush. Next morning, I was advised to wear flip flops or sandals and we were taken out on a boat and soon came across gazebos on a sandbank in the middle of the Zambezi river which is where breakfast was being served, thankfully, no crocs joined us for breakfast. Staff were marvellous, especially Arnold in the lodge and Patrick,our guide who was really handy with his machete to lop off overhanging branches as well as being a really good guide. The room was beautiful as well as being large with all of the facilities that we needed . We have been travelling in Africa for about 12 years now and can honestly sat that this camp is one of our all time favourites and the food and cups of tea were to die for. My other big passion is fishing and we were taken out on the river to fish for Tiger fish. This is where I had a problem. My wife who does not like fishing at all caught more Tiger fish than me but to make it worse, she also caught the largest. Beginners luck obviously. Very few Tsetses here but instead we had to put up with tiny little flies that came out in force at night and gave irritating bites but nothing could take away our enjoyment of this beautiful place.

I have just spent the most beautiful weekend here. The views from the rooms are incredible. We went self catering and we just gave our food to the staff and they prepared it all for us. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We went on a game drive and Collins, our guide, was extremely knowledgable and we saw many elephants, buffalo, all types of buck, baboons and our game drive was finished with a spectacular leopard sighting. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated. Would 100% recommend this lodge.
