There are no words to describe how wonderful our stay at Sausage Tree was but I'll try. We stayed for 4 nights in October 2016 for our honeymoon and from the second we arrived at the lodge we loved it. Our daily routine consisted of morning game drive, a break for coffee and rusk (delightful South African delicacy!), back to...

We loved our stay at Sausage Tree. Friendly attentive service and very nice accommodations. The food was incredible and served in a beautiful setting. Room was comfortable and you always feel safe since there is an electric fence surrounding the camp. Game drives were informative and fun. Our guide was passionate and able to locate elephants, giraffe, water buffalo, lions,antelope,...

Sausage Tree Safari Camp is a well situated lodge retied from the main road over a rough dirt road but suitable for most cars. Comfortable safari style tents with aircon and views over the reserve where wild animals frequent. When we visited game was in short supply probably due to the very dry conditions but the guys worked hard to...

To come straight to the point, my boyfriend and I can totally recommend this camp.

On top of it you meet great and interesting people and have time to relax! Additionally we were lucky to...

Everything here is more than great. A very nice staff, delicious food, wonderful view and so much more. We've also seen the big five and a lot more different animals in real life, sometimes even just next to you. Nice tents, very clean, a shower outside with an incredible view at the bush.

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.
