A majestic Lower Zambezi lodge with a wealth of activities and a stunning location, Sausage Tree has been widely decorated with awards as one of Africa’s finest safari accommodations. In the heart of the national park in a game rich area on the banks of the Zambezi, the camp overlooks a series of channels and reed islands frequented by elephant, hippo, crocodile and birdlife. Eight large, Bedouin-style white canvas tents have open air bathrooms with bathtubs, and a private viewing deck that is regularly bypassed by wildlife. Inside there is a minimalist style supplemented by vintage teak furnishings, including comfortable four poster beds and sliding doors to permit great views of the river. The two honeymoon suites are luxurious and romantic, with indoor and outdoor bathrooms and a private pool set into the teak decking, while the two-bedroom Kigelia Suite is perfect for families.
Sausage Tree’s extensive communal areas include a swimming pool under the shade of mahogany trees and a teak deck over the river, where fine dining can be enjoyed. There is plenty of space between the rooms for elephants and other big game to pass through camp, creating an authentic, wild atmosphere. With day and night game drives, canoe safaris, guided walks and fishing offered by top-class guides to supplement all the luxury, Sausage Tree is a highly desirable slice of bush chic.
