Sausage Tree Camp


Sausage Tree Camp sits on the Zambezi River overlooking an expanse of narrow channels and low reed islands. From its secluded location guests have a front-row view of busy wildlife activity along the riverbanks, as elephant, buffalo and hippo come to drink and browse on grasses. The camp has just six Bedouin-style white canvas tents, furnished with luxurious fabrics and Zambian teak, offer a highly civilized approach to a genuine bush experience. Each tent has en-suite open-air bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, and large teak decks surrounded by mature sausage and mahogany trees. An enormous deck that overlooks the Zambezi River’s reeded islands, teeming with wildlife, fronts the central dining and bar area.  The large swimming pool is idyllically situated under a canopy of Mahogany trees. Since the tents are generously spaced apart from one another, elephants often wander between them as they meander through the camp. Dining at Sausage Tree is a highlight of any stay here. Superb African fusion cuisine is served on white linen by atmospheric candlelight, and afterward, guests can relax by the river in the glow of a classic campfire.
