Although I now live in Vancouver, Canada, I grew up in South Africa and Namibia... and what I've missed most (apart from family and friends) has been the bush -- its animals and birds, the aroma of braaivleis and smoke from a crackling hardwood fire, the chorus of frogs and insects beneath a deep black-velvet night canopy with diamond-stars shining impossibly bright; the frenzied chatter of monkeys after a deep-throated lion's roar, and the Woop-whoop! of a zebra in the night .
Sausage Tree had all that -- and so much more.
I recently had the privilege of spending a few days there, including attending my son's wedding. What more can I say than 'incredible'? Sonja and her staff took care of everything, with warmth and friendliness and an ease born of meticulous planning and professionalism. The decor was beautiful, with excellent attention to detail, and the gourmet meal was beautifully presented.
My grateful thanks go to each member of the staff who not only exceeded my expectations in terms of service delivery, but also made us all truly feel like family.
If you want an incredible South African bush experience, be it a corporate getaway, a romantic rendezvous or a unique wedding, look no further than Sausage Tree.
