This small safari lodge goes the extra mile to provide exactly what its clients want. The food is fantastic & the location amazing, but it is the attention to the clients' needs which is particularly noteworthy.

This lodge has probably the most dedicated and the most qualified guides of the entire region : James, Mike and Timber !
You wish to discover the bush on a walk ? they will arrange it ! This walk in the hostile wilderness has been the most beautiful of my life : you feel truly alive! The senses are awakened : sight, smell, hearing, touch ... all those things which have no more utility today recover their vital functions here between lions, hyenas, buffaloes, jackals, rhinos, etc..
After two exciting game drive, the delicious meal and a comfortable bedding will remind you of comfort of modern civilization.

The intimate camp with beautiful vista and delicious home cooked meals is what you can look forward to at Sausage Tree! Game drives with an experienced driver and superb tracker ensure you get to meet the big five at close range! Comfortable and private accomodation in safari tents completes the picture. What a superb experience!

My husband and I wrapped up our trip to South Africa with a two-day visit to Sausage Tree Safari Camp. By the end of our stay, we didn't want to leave. The place is just so wonderful.

There were two drives each day. One in the morning around 5:30/6 a.m. and one in the late afternoon around 4 p.m. The drives lasted around 3 hours with a small break during each drive for a snack. The guides and tracker did a great job of not only showing us a variety of animals, but helping us learn more about the animals. They were incredibly knowledgeable. The guides from Sausage Tree communicate via radio with guides from other lodges to alert one another of certain animal sightings. Thanks to this radio exchange, we were able to see the elusive leopard.

I think the real magic of Sausage Tree (aside from its beautiful setting) is its proprietors/staff and its small size. First, the staff -- Sonja, James, Richard and company make you feel at home in the bush. They just love the bush and it shows. The meals we had were absolutely delicious and quite filling (thanks, Orlando!).

Second, the size -- With just four tents, the number of guests who can stay each night is limited. This allowed us to get know the other guests since we shared meals and drives with the same 6 people each day. The proprietors also joined in on the meals so we got to know them as well. Each night after dinner we'd all sit around the campfire chatting about anything and everything.

The tents were fun to stay in. They made our safari experience seem even more legit (without having to rough it). The tents were spacious with a nice front porch that had a couple chairs and a hammock. Our tent had a great view of the watering hole where we saw a little dakkar come back several times for a drink. The inside of the tent was well appointed with a cozy bed, air conditioning, and a semi-outdoor shower (awesome.).

We booked our stay via their website. Just a word of note to others -- they don't take credit cards, but instead offer a fee-free bank transfer option. We were nervous about this at first, but it turned out to be completely fine. After staying there, it's even more apparent we had nothing to worry about.

We loved it here. Now, the question is, when can we go back?

We enjoyed a relaxed two days at Sausage Tree Safari Camp: Good company, excellent food, friendly hosts, comfortable accommodation and the best game viewing with James & Richard. Who can complain when you see Elephant, Lion (male, female & cubs) and Leopard in only two days!
