Travellers' Choice
Set in the Balule Nature Reserve, Sausage Tree Safari Camp promises rich game viewing and spectacular views, as our boundary with Kruger National Park is open and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains form a majestic back drop. This family operated safari camp pride itself on the warm atmosphere and African safari tented accommodation it offers. Enjoy lantern lit dinners in our boma or open deck under the star studded African sky. Sunrise and sunset safaris in open 4x4 vehicles are the highlights of the day.The Safari Camp:Our African safari-styled tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Each tent is spacious and built in an elevated position with it's own special view. The tents are fully furnished and have their own private deck and ensuite bathroom with a bath and outdoor shower. Inverter or Eco based Air-conditioners are fitted in each tent ensuring that you stay cool during those warm summer nights... and can even be set to warm during those colder nights in winter. Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong.

We stayed four nights at this fantastic Safari Camp. Property was well maintained with beautiful gardens. Main facilities had fantastic views. Lodging tents were very comfortable and also have great views of the watering hole for animal sightings. Property manager went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Property owners were also available on-sight each day to make sure our visit was enjoyable. Very surprised by the high quality of the food prepared by Chef Orlando. The daily Game Drives were a highlight of our trip thanks to Jimmy and Themba. There was no shortage of exciting, up close animal sightings including a pride of lions 15 members strong. We highly recommend this Camp to anyone looking for a great Kruger Safari Experience.

Lovely camp in the Bush, part of the greater Kruger National Park. We had some awesome sightings, largely due to an excellent game ranger, Thks Matthew. Perhaps they can improve on their breakfast spread.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a fantastic experience! The lodge was perfect for us and we felt right at home. The staff is fantastic. Chef Orlando does a fantastic job and the food is so good. He is so proud of the food he prepares! Jimmy and Themba did a fantastic job during our game drives. They told us stories, tracked the animals and showed us amazing places. We will never forget the beautiful sunset by the river, accompanied by the hippos. We would love to come back to The Sausage Tree :)

Where to start on this absolutely incredible camp! I had the most incredible 3 nights stay at Sausage Tree Safari Camp! Every aspect of my stay was above and beyond my expectations, from the world class game drives by Jimmy and Polite! I cannot commend them enough! We saw the Big 5 on the first day due to their incredible tracking skills and knowledge of the bush! This was definitely a highlight of my stay here. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel extra welcome and more like friends than guests. The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful and the luxury tents were top notch. The outdoor shower was especially great, and at night we could hear hyenas calling! Thank you to everyone at Sausage Tree Safari Camp for such an incredible stay! I hope one day to be back, as it was emotional leaving!
