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.
In 2018 camp underwent a complete refurbishment and now boasts 7 new Luxury Suites that are double the footprint of the old Signature Tents constructed from canvas & eco man made “wood” and decorated with soft linens, natural wood and modern furniture. Kigelia House is a family unit with 2 ensuite bedrooms connected by an open plan lounge/dining area with private deck & plunge pool.
The general mess area was rebuilt in 2016 to mark camp’s 20th Anniversary and compromises a Dining/Bar/Lounge area with expansive deck overlooking the reed islands in front of camp with a breakfast bar set up overlooking the water and connects through to a 25m lap pool via raised timber walkways.
Each Luxury Suite has been built closer to the river’s edge allowing unrivalled views over the reed islands in front of camp teeming with wildlife. Each suite offers a lounge area, bedroom, indoor bathroom with open air shower, sliding doors leading out onto a large deck complete with outdoor lounge area and private plunge pool.

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), all led by professionally trained, qualified and well experienced guides.
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.
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.
