Sausage Tree is certainly in the running for the most opulently luxurious lodge in the Lower Zambezi. Whether this is actually a good thing, we will let you decide! The activities and guiding are set as high as any of the camps in the park and the location is good. To be honest, when compared with other lodges in Africa, Sausage is pretty great. However after the office vote, we have come to agreement that we prefer the slightly less opulent Chiawa Camp and adventurous travellers would certainly prefer the stunning Old Mondoro. But be under no misconception, this is still a great camp.
Sausage Tree - The Details
Sausage Tree is situated in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park and is nestled among Sausage, Mopani and Winterthorn Trees on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. The dining and bar tent overlooks meandering channels which help form a wetland in front of the camp and is home to the huge herds of hippo, elephant and buffalo.
The small exclusive camp, which is owner-operated, holds 12 guests in six "bedouin style" tents. Open air en suite bathrooms with flush loo and running hot and cold water. Offering personalised guiding by professional safari guides to experience the pristine wildlife and track the lion, leopard and nocturnal species from both land and river.
Activities include game drives; day and night. Canoeing, walking, birding, boating and fishing. A unique camp in a unique location!
