Sausage Tree Camp

This camp has earned itself a strong reputation over recent years and for good reason, Jason Mott has owned and managed the camp for a number of years but he now spends more time in Lusaka with his wife and young family and is dependent upon his camp manager to keep things ticking over for him. Jason is lucky to have found a very professional couple in John and Nicky who are committed to their jobs and also to Sausage Tree and the Lower Zambezi.

The camp comprises 4 luxury, modern styled rooms with high canvas roofs, they are a novel design and one that has become synonymous with this camp, the bathrooms again are open-air and have views to the river. Sausage Tree recently underwent renovations, and since then, each tent has its' own plunge pool and deck. In addition to these ‘signature tents’ there are 2 suites that are of similar design but are considerably larger with baths, more furniture and their own plunge pools. In my opinion these suites challenge the suites at Chongwe for best accommodation units in the Lower Zambezi.

There is also the ‘Kigelia House’, designed along similar lines to the suites but this house has 2 rooms so is ideal for families, there is a living area in between with a small pool in front.

Activites include the usual game-drives and walks as well as all the river activities, the camp is very close to the Chifungulu channel which provides some excellent canoeing, although in my own experience this route can be a little “exciting” at times. This camp is priced the same as Chiawa and really the differences pretty much come down to personal preference.
