Sausage Tree Camp


All the game, all the luxury, without all the people

Sausage Tree Camp is located on the banks of the Zambezi River, at the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia. Sheltered by mature mahogany, acacia and sausage trees, the camp is a peaceful haven for guests as well as for a number of local animals. Watch out for elephants – and their droppings – on your way from the main dining and lounge area to your private secluded tent. Sometimes there are so many elephants about that you have to be driven back to your tent, which is a far better alternative to stepping in a steaming pile of fresh dung or surprising a grazing elephant!

Sausage Tree Camp prides itself on offering all the game and all the luxury, without all the people. It sleeps only 16 guests. Accommodation entails luxurious white Bedouin style tents, generously spaced along the Zambezi River bank. Style is minimalist and local materials were used in the decor, such as the teak furniture and four-poster beds, pure white fabrics and flowing mosquito nets. The tents are under the shade of mature Sausage and Mahogany trees, and practically out of sight of one another, creating private sanctuaries to return to for an afternoon siesta or good night’s sleep.  

Each of the five 'Signature Tents' have open-air en-suite bathrooms and sliding teak doors opening onto private decks with Zambezi River views. The two enormous 'Honeymoon Suites' have indoor and outdoor bathrooms, dining area, bar and a king size bed overlooking the private pool. 'Kigelia House' is great for small groups or families, with two en-suite bedrooms separated by an open plan living area leading onto the private deck and pool. Each tent has its own personal butler and there is 24 hour power and plenty, safe hot and cold water.

The central dining and bar area boasts an enormous teak deck overlooking the Zambezi River and low set reed islands teeming with game. The large swimming pool is idyllically situated under shading Mahogany trees.

The best way to see wildlife and birdlife in the park is from the water. Thus a canoeing safari is a popular choice or if your sea legs are not up to a fragile canoe you can navigate the same waterways by boat in search of elephant, hippo, crocodile and any number of other wild animals. Another popular pastime is to fish the deep waters in search of the best fighting fresh water fish of them all, the tigerfish! Scenic channels dotted with water lilies and hippos, combined with expansive views of the river and distant Zambezi escarpment, make for an idyllic way to experience the river, flood plains and riverine flora. Game Drives and bush walks are also a great way to encounter the Zambezi valley wildlife.
