Sausage Tree Camp is situated in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia on the banks of the glorious Zambezi River. Sausage Tree Camp is perhaps the most romantic of all the Lower Zambezi camps and thus particularly recommended for honeymoons in Zambia. The main lodge is open plan under an extensive canvas with an expansive teak deck overlooking the Zambezi river – perfect for sundowners. The 25 metre lap pool is idyllically situated right on the edge of the riverbank, under shading Mahogany trees with outstanding views. Sun loungers are on hand for relaxing during the heat of the day.
Sausage Tree Camp has seven white Bedouin-style tents and the Kigelia Suite. All are spacious and uncluttered with solid Zambian teak furniture and four-poster beds decked in pure white linen. Sliding doors lead out onto a private deck with river views. Each has a charming open-air en suite bathroom. A Muchinda (private butler) is on hand to assist you. Nearly hidden from one another, and shaded by mature Sausage and Mahogany trees, the tents are cool, private sanctuaries to return to for an afternoon siesta. They are generously spaced along the Zambezi River bank allowing the elephants to amble in between. (You need to allow 5 minutes to walk from the furthest tent to the dining tent!)
The two luxurious tented honeymoon suites at Sausage Tree Camp each have an enormous four poster bed and both indoor & outdoor bathroom. Each has a private pool set into an expansive teak deck.
Kigelia House is a private villa with two bedrooms, perfect for two couples or a family. The en suite bedrooms are separated by an open plan living area which leads onto a private teak deck and pool.
Activities at Sausage Tree Camp
Activities are extremely flexible at Sausage Tree Camp. With a range of guides, vehicles and boats available, you can choose what game activity you want to take and when – you don’t have to fit in with other guests’ plans. Choose between game drives, night drives, bush walks, boat cruises, canoeing amongst the hippos in the Chifungulu channel or trying your luck at tiger fishing in the Zambezi River (on a catch and release basis). You can sometimes combine activities at Sausage Tree Camp taking a one hour canoe trip at sunset prior to a night drive for example.
Good food is also an important part of any stay at Sausage Tree Camp, with delicious lunches in a variety of settings. Sundowners are enjoyed watching the sun set over the Zambezi escarpment of Zambia from the deck. Dinner is served by candle light in the open air dining tent, by star light on the deck, by moonlight on an island in the Zambezi, by campfire light deep in the bush, or by lantern light in the privacy of your own deck. There is a silent generator available for 24 hour power.
