Sausage Tree Camp is a small tented camp in a stunning setting in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park.
The camp epitomises ‘bush chic” with six luxurious, white Bedouin-style tents discreetly positioned beside the Zambezi River. A minimalist style incorporates teak furniture, sumptuous four-poster beds and flowing white fabrics and nets. The tents are cool, private sanctuaries shaded by mahogany, acacia and sausage trees, and are famous for their private, open-air, en-suite bathrooms offering steaming hot water and wonderfully decadent secluded views!
With animals free to wander through the camp and your own personal butler to assist you, Sausage Tree prides itself on providing a civilized approach to a true bush experience. For dining, wine and socialising there is a central area high on the riverbank – it overlooks the water lilies and pods of hippo (who’s ‘snorts’ accompany the three-course candlelit dinners!) Alternatively, for those in the mood for romance, your butler will serve a star-lit dinner beside your tent. Game drives are conducted morning, afternoon and evening and there will be plenty of opportunity to get onto the river to enjoy some game-viewing, and birdwatching. The camp also offers canoeing, guided walks and picnic lunches. A visit to Sausage Tree Camp is perfectly complimented with a stay at its bush camp – Old Mondoro.
