Exciting news at Sausage Tree Camp – Cheetah sighting!
This photo was taken by one of our guests on board a game-driving vehicle on Saturday 22nd April at 18:54pm. It may not be the clearest picture but we think you will agree it’s definitely a Cheetah! The image was captured just south of an area known as Twin Baobab – immediately behind Sausage Tree Camp. Cheetah have not been sighted in the Lower Zambezi National Park since the late 1990’s, so we are very interested to discover more about this one and how it came to be here!
Sausage Tree Camp is the epitome of bush chic, set in a stunning location along the Zambezi River at the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park. The pristine location and Sausage Tree Camp offer all the game, all the luxury without all the people!
Sleeping only 16 guests, Sausage Tree Camp offers a civilized approach to a true bush experience with lavish attention to detail. 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 25m Lap-pool is idyllically situated right on the edge of the riverbank, under shading Mahogany trees with outstanding views.
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.
Potato Bush Camp lies adjacent to it’s sister camp, the world-renowned Sausage Tree Camp. With a stunning panoramic view overlooking the Zambezi River and escarpment, this site is nestled under Mahogany, Sausage, Winter Thorn and Acacia Tortillas Trees, which provide excellent shade. Potato Bush Camp is comprised of three well-appointed Canvas and Rosewood Safari Tents and also a 2-bedroom Family Tent (similar to the very popular Kigelia House at Sausage Tree Camp).
