Sausage Tree Camp

Sausage Tree Camp is a chic safari camp in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park. Lying on the banks of the Zambezi River, this tented camp overlooks an expanse of narrow channels and low set reed islands, with the magnificent Zambezi escarpment as a backdrop.

The epitome of bush chic, Sausage Tree Camp offers a civilized, luxury approach to a bush experience. The camp has eight slightly raised, generously spaced, reed, wood and white canvas safari tents. Five signature tents have open air bathrooms and a private deck with river views. Two honeymoon suites include a king size bed, inside and outside bathrooms, a dining area, private pool and expansive teak deck. Kigelia House is a two-bedroom house perfect for families or small groups. Every tent has a personal butler and 24 hour power. There is a central dining and bar area fronted by an enormous teak deck overlooking the Zambezi, and a generous shaded swimming pool. There are plush comfortable chairs and raised walkways.

Activities offered at Sausage Tree include day and night game drives, walking safaris, canoeing, scenic boat cruises and fishing.

Safari Experience

Sausage Tree Camp offers some of the finest game viewing in natural habitats anywhere in Africa.

Its location within the Lower Zambezi National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River means that game viewing activities take place both on the water, by boat and canoes, and on land by four-wheel drive game viewing vehicles or on foot (bush walks).

The camp is well equipped with game viewing vehicles, boats and canoes allowing us to easily cater to the personal and individual needs of all guests.

Sausage Tree camp offers a variety of activities led by our professionally trained, qualified and well experienced guides.

 

Wildlife & Birdlife

The Lower Zambezi National Park has a large variety of faunal species including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects, distributed in varying densities and in complex and diverse eco-systems.

During your stay in the Lower Zambezi, you will have a very good chance of seeing the following large mammals: elephant, hippo, buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, impala, bushbuck and kudu.

Of the carnivores, there are solid numbers of leopard, lion and hyena.  Other commonly seen animals are wild dog (african hunting dog), serval and the african wild cat.

Smaller animals include the side striped jackal, dwarf, slender & banded mongoose, large spotted genet, civet, tree squirrel, honey badger, porcupine and aardvark.

These animals are widely dispersed during the wet season because there is plenty of water and forage.

In the dry season they are largely concentrated along the valley floor, the banks of the river and islands in the Zambezi River.
