Sausage Tree Camp is the epitome of euro chic in Africa. With incredible newly built modern tents all open to the river during the day (and closed at night) you will have excellent views of your surroundings. One of the best features here is the guarantee of a private vehicle and guide for your stay which allows you to control your activities and timings, from game drives and walks to canoeing and fishing there is plenty to do here if you want to leave the comfort of the camp!

The rooms have lavish attention to detail. Despite being a ‘tent’ you feel as though you are in the most modern of places with huge comfy beds, teak furnishings, leather armchairs, huge sunbeds, plunge pools and semi open-air bathrooms so you can shower under the stars. This is one of the few places you may choose to skip an activity to spend some time in your room-not that that will stop you seeing the wildlife. With river views, you can still get your binos out to see a huge array of animals and birds from your own bedroom.
The lodge has a nearby channel off the main river which is used for the canoe safaris – a ‘must’ activity for any guest -it is a thrilling experience. The bird life here is incredible; you can see everything from bucket-list species to up close views of magnificent fish eagles. You can also get up close and personal to the larger mammals such as the hippos and elephants! The guides know the channel and the particular animals like the back of their hands so you can get that all important picture of an elephant head-toss or wide angled hippo yawn! It is one of the most exciting activities you can experience – not to be missed!
The staff here are exceptionally friendly and welcoming, from the ever present bartender to the warm natured waiters. They go out of their way to make your experience a special one, setting up special locations for dinner, suggesting books from the library and bringing cold beers to you in the huge swimming pool. You have your own private butler who will see to your every need, from escorting you around camp to running you a hot bath for after your game drive – no detail is overlooked here.
