I can't thank Richard and Mandy enough for making our safari such a wonderful, fun trip! Right from the start, it was easy to see Richard was going to make sure we stayed safe, entertained, and amazed at every corner.

I cannot say enough good things about our extended family at The Sausage Tree. I would give 10 stars if I could. If you are lucky enough to get in take advantage and you will love every minute. We had the most amazing time and will always remember our new friends.

Great place for safari, only 10 visitors max in camp. Very accommodating for our food needs, excellent chef. They take you out in open jeep to see animals in natural habitat not a conservatory, twice a day for 3 hours each. Family run, they try their best to have you see all the animals. During dinner they heard a leopard...

Had such a great experience. The game runs were amazing, everyone is so in tune with nature! Clean rooms, wonderful polite service, outstanding food! I do wish that there was maybe an optional afternoon activity since there is some down time in between meals and drives. Other then that it was perfect!!! Very cute dogs and cats on the property!...
