We had a marvellous time at the Sausage Tree Safari camp. Excellent food, comfortable beds, kind staff and fantastic safaris. We were lucky to meet "The Big Five" in 24 hours. All of them close to the car.

Our family of four plus one grandmother spent two wonderful nights here. Kevin and Themba were very good, knowledgeable guides. Terrific elephant sightings...right near our tents! Solid game viewing all round. Orlando's cooking was delicious and we look forward to making his malva pudding when we get home. Tented accommodations were exactly as expected—very comfortable, even in the 40C heat....
