Our stay at Sausage Tree was outstanding. The small size of the camp was perfect, resulting in a very comfortable, relaxed, like-home feeling.
The warmth and hospitality of Sonja, James, Liam, and Themba made our stay more like visiting friends. Orlando’s gourmet meals were spectacular – our whole family gained weight!
The daily schedule was great – both active and relaxing: an early morning drive on the reserve to track and view animals (with a coffee stop in the bush), a group breakfast at 10am, free time (for watching animals and appreciating the beauty of the land from the lodge deck – or for napping!), lunch at 2pm, an evening drive for more animal watching (including a sunset stop for drinks in the bush), and a super dinner served outdoors by the fire.
Themba’s ability to spot and track animals was impressive, as was his fearlessness. Liam excelled in his passion for and knowledge of the animals and environment (not to mention his riveting stories about previous animal encounters).
Staying at a small lodge made us feel like we lived there. We hardly saw other game-watching vehicles.
This experience ranks as one of the best family vacation we’ve ever taken around the world over the years. We recommend Sausage Tree most enthusiastically and without reservation.
