Wow, one of the best lodges I have had the privilege of staying at! The ranger and the tracker (Themba and Jimmy) were amazing, went out of their way to find us the elusive Pels fishing owl (without success this time , but we will be back). The game viewing was phenomenal, saw leopard on 5 out of the 6 drives. The chef made the most delicious meals and the lodge made my birthday very memorable. A big thank you to the entire Sausage Tree family.
Sausage Tree does it again! Covid precautions in place with guest comfort and safety in mind. A beautiful welcome from Eswe and Nommy. Stunning, spotless tents are so lovely and private. Thank you Linky. Themba and Polite provide enthusiastic, fun, and adventurous game drives with awesome sightings. And the food...Orlando and Sebastian....AMAZING! James and Sonja....Thank you for another incredible experience. We love you, Sausage Tree!❤️🦓🦒
My husband and I spent several amazing days at Sausage Tree during our honeymoon and it was an incredible experience!!! The staff, especially our guide and tracker, were amazing and really made sure we were up in all of the action at all times! We highly recommend staying at this camp and this experience was better than we could have ever imagined!!
What a wonderful 5 days I’ve just had at Sausage Tree and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves nature, comfortable tents right in the middle of nature, great food and fresh air. This place is truly special and I could not fault a thing. We had 8 wonderful game drives where we saw everything and more. The staff are so knowledgable, warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. I’m already planning how and when we can come again!
We enjoyed our stay, comfortable, relaxed and we left heavier because of all the good food and a beautiful local beer they keep that I cant pronounc , we got to see some special fortunate sightings like a Pel's fishing owl, Jimmy and Themba our guides top class.
The Sausage Tree Safari Camp exceeded our expectations. The quality of the food was excellent. If you’re lucky to be there when Pitso makes chicken pie for lunch don’t skip this! Every effort was made by the staff to make our experience the best ever. Themba and Jimmy really delivered during the game drives. We saw almost all the big five - just missing a leopard. These guys shared their knowledge of the bush and we all learned a lot and had great time. Special shout-out to Polite who was serving at the time. He was the best and gave us extra special attention to making sure we were happy. Polite is also a guide (he rotates between serving and guiding I think) and I’m sure he’s great at that too. The owners, Sonja and James, were very attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking for a convenient get away. It’s only a 20 minute drive from Hoedspruit airport which is a big plus.…
We were met at the entrance by Julia (who became our go to for the well-stocked bar) and Thandi, who showed us to our Tents ( glamping with aircon). The view as you get to the deck is stunning, here you eat Breakfast and Lunch. The evening meal wa in the Boma. Our Guide Themba and Tracker Polite were very knowlegible about the Bush, including Flora and Fauna, Birds, and Mammals. They also have profound sense of humour. The food was wonderfully prepared by Pitso, I could not fault the food, Portions were great. One afternoon tea a cake came out and all the guests said it was the best Cake they had ever had (Caramel & Buttercream) The owners James and Sonia chatted loving of their lodge and keen to share experiences and their love of the Bush. There would have been 5 stars, but I don’t like to track for the entire morning to find nothing, understandably, overseas visitors have paid an enormous amount of money to see the Big 5, but it is not always possible, as we found out after 2 days of tracking and not finding the elusive animal. We always find just driving they will come to you eventually. The truck was also cramped, nowhere to put camera bags/jackets etc. Overall, it was great, we had great sightings and the entire staff were so lovely, we will return.…
The owners were gracious, the staff helpful and efficient, our guide Jimmy and tracker Timba were dedicated to making sure we had an exceptional, safe safari experience, the chef, Peter, was talented, and the setting exciting. The accommodations were very nice. It was amazing to hear hyenas at night from our tent [inside an electrified fence]. Evening meals in the boma were convivial and our guide and tracker were there to answer our questions and tell us engaging stories of the bush. We had a great time!
The best lodge we have been to during our recent family trip to South Africa and the best safaris we have ever done with two super knowledgeable guides (Jimmy and Temba) who take you very close to all kind of animals including the big 5 ! The host James is very attentive to everything to make your stay memorable, staffs are all excellent including a super chef who’s food is delicious. We had a wonderful time and we will not hesitate to go back to this lodge for a future trip to SA. We highly recommend this place ! Sabrina & Family
What a wonderful stay! Beautiful place to stay, very nice people, delicious food, great safari experiences and luxury tents. Jimmy, the safari guide, was there to give us fantastic safari experiences. James, the owner, always in to share his knowledge and bush experience with us. Short: don’t hesitate, just book! You will love it!
