Sausage Tree Camp is set in the most stunning location on the banks of the Zambezi River in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Parks best game viewing area. The camp overlooks an expanse of narrow channels and low set reed islands teeming with game, with the magnificent Zambezi escarpment as the backdrop.

If you are visiting Zambia, then the Lower Zambezi National Park is a must and only Sausage Tree Camp will show you the very best of what the park has to offer.

This Lower Zambezi Camp is the epitome of bush chic offering a civilized approach to a true bush experience with lavish attention to detail. This exclusive safari camp, voted number one on the BBC Holiday Programme's 'Ten Best Luxury Destinations', specializes in the very best game viewing with the highest international standards in luxury and service.

Rooms & Suites:

Accommodation is in luxurious white Bedouin style tents, completely rebuilt in 2008 to the highest of standards. Tents are generously spaced along the Zambezi River bank allowing the elephants to amble in between. Local materials create a minimalist style in which the teak furniture, including sumptuous four-poster beds, contrasts with pure white fabrics and flowing mosquito nets. Nearly hidden from one another, and shaded by mature Sausage and Mahogany trees, the tents are cool, private sanctuaries to return to for an afternoon siesta or good nights rest.

Each of the five 'Signature Tents' has a unique open-air en-suite bathroom, a distinct Sausage Tree trademark, and sliding teak doors opening onto private decks with Zambezi River views.

The two enormous 'Honeymoon Suites' each boast indoor and outdoor bathrooms, dining area, bar and a king size bed overlooking the private pool set into the expansive teak deck.

Food & Wine:

African inspired fusion cuisine will certainly be a highlight of your stay. Made from the freshest ingredients, the tastes and presentation will astound you.

But the experience of dining at Sausage Tree goes far beyond the food itself. Dinners to the sounds of the African evening by candle light in the open air dining tent, by star light on the deck, by moonlight on an island in the Zambezi, by campfire light deep in the bush, or by lantern light in the privacy of your own deck; Lunches on a sandbank in the Zambezi River, the water lapping at your feet; Sundowners watching the sun set over the Zambezi escarpment from the deck or overlooking the river or open plains.

Each meal will bring surprises and memories to cherish.


The central dining and bar area is fronted by an enormous teak deck overlooking the Zambezi River and low set reed islands teeming with game. The large swimming pool is idyllically situated under shading Mahogany trees.


Sausage Tree Camp offers some of the finest game viewing in natural habitats anywhere in Africa.

It's location within the Lower Zambezi National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River means that game viewing activities take place both on the water, by boat and canoes, and on the land by four-wheel drive game viewing vehicles or on foot (bush walks).

The camp is well equipped with game viewing vehicles, boats and canoes allowing us to easily cater to the personal and individual needs of all our guests.

  • The Lower Zambezi is Zambia's newest Park and is still relatively undeveloped, a absolute state of wilderness. The Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the river is a massive wildlife sanctuary.
