Set in the Balule Nature Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park, Sausage Tree Safari Camp is not only surrounded by the African wilderness, but also offers spectacular views of the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. This family-owned and operated safari camp prides itself on a warm atmosphere and African safari-styled tented accommodation.
Each morning and late afternoon, an experienced and professional guide will take you on a safari game drive through thick bush and along open plains in search of the Big Five (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) as well as general game species such as giraffe, zebra, warthog, kudu and impala. During the drives there is a lot of emphasis on giving information on everything that is encountered – whether your interest is birding, insects, plants and trees, your guide will happily share his knowledge with you!
Breakfast and lunch is served on an open deck with views of the bush and a water hole frequented by a variety of resident animals. Dinner is mostly served under the stars, in front of the fire in the boma. The camp has a lounge for those lazy siesta’s, and a cosy bar complete with a variety of first class South African wines. The deck pool becomes a remedy for those hot summer days. Should dinner be eaten on the deck on those calm, bright evenings, the fire place is lit adding some romance to those magical African nights.
Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
