Sausage Tree came recommended by a friend of a friend, and it really lived up to expectations! Sonja and her team welcomed us wholeheartedly, and we had a wonderful time. This is an amazing value for money safari experience, with very comfortable and nicely decorated tents and lodge, with the added bonus that the camp is quite exclusive in that it only caters to a maximum of 10 guests. The reserve is extremely good for the Big 5. We stayed 4 nights, and had an amazing 6 lion sightings, and close encounters with elephants on every game drive, We were also fortunate enough to see Rhino, Leopard and Cape Buffalo, therefore managing the Big 5, as well as Hippo, Crocs and Giraffe. Like the reviewer below (is that you Steph and Mike?), we were lucky to see the birth of a baby giraffe. Liam our guide, and Themba the tracker were experts at tracking game. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
