Great visit to Sausage Tree. Management and staff are generous, kind and professional hosts. All other guests - and management - were great company. On our first full day we saw the Big 5 including a stunning leopard. Very comfortable accommodation, great cuisine, wonderful game drives. If you're driving from the South we'd recommend you drive up via the Panoramic/Blyde...

My nephew and I had traveled in Africa for almost a month before coming to Sausage Tree for the last days of our vacation. We had an amazing trip and those few days at the Camp were a major highlight. When planning this I wanted to feel immersed in the African bush and yet have the comfort of good beds...

The bathroom has an inside bath and an outside shower. One night I had about 15 baboons wander past me whilst I was showering and my husband had a huge...

We stayed at the Sausage Tree last October and it exceeded our already high expectations. The camp was referred to us by a friend and I will now always take recs from that individual!

Also the game drives were spectacular. We got to see a lot of animals we hadn't seen in other game reserves yet f.e. wild dogs and lions. We were lucky...

The lodge were quite small, room for 10 persons and it made it a very cosy and intimate place to stay with wonderful and social personel. We had morning and evening safaris and relaxing during the mid day (was good to relax during the hottest hours at the pool).

This family operated safari camp pride itself on the warm atmosphere and African safari tented accommodation it offers. Enjoy lantern lit dinners in our boma or open deck under the star studded African sky. Sunrise and sunset safaris in open 4x4 vehicles are the highlights of the day.The Safari Camp:Our African safari-styled tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Each tent is spacious and built in an elevated position with it's own special view. The tents are fully furnished and have their own private deck and ensuite bathroom with a bath and outdoor shower. Inverter or Eco based Air-conditioners are fitted in each tent ensuring that you stay cool during those warm summer nights... and can even be set to warm during those colder nights in winter. Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong. ... more   less
