Hold the phone, stop the press, desist in whatever you may be doing now and listen up! Sausage Tree – not going to deny that this is one of, if not our most favourite place in the Lower Zambezi – has become even more amazing than we ever thought it could be… Sausage Tree has undergone the most fantabulous refurb we have seen to date. It definitely did not really need it before, but boy are we glad with the results!
The rooms that once dotted the banks of the lower Zambezi have gone through an extremely chique up-do. The rooms now have a canvas topping, solid walls, spacious decking, your own private plunge pool looking out onto the vast expanse of the Lower Zambezi. The main idea of this new refurb is to make sure you do not miss a single moment, or have any blocked vision of the stunning scenery. Because, you could well be lying in your bed, out on the deck or taking a quick dip in the plunge pool and god forbid you miss any of the wildlife action that could be taking place just outside your room.
This area of the Lower Zambezi where Sausage Tree is situated is absolutely phenomenal. We can hands down confirm that the way this camp is run, is effortless and nothing is ever a problem. The rooms are all extremely private and curve effortlessly off the main path from the main decking area.
The food at Sausage Tree is beyond exquisite. Partnered with delicious wine you really can’t beat it. On your arrival, you will either be met off the plane by your safari guide and taken on a game drive back to the lodge where you will have a joyous welcome from the brilliant members of staff. Alternatively if you are arriving from another camp just up or down from the river you will hop off your boat, again with a huge warm welcome, make your way up onto the deck and just soak in the surrounding sounds, smells and of course views.
I would just like to add that the guides are absolutely fantastic. Their knowledge of the local flora and fauna is truly mind blowing. From morning and evening games drives to walking safaris and the peaceful canoe safaris down a picturesque spillway from the main river, and now with these fantastically refurbished and truly comfortable rooms, there really isn’t much more we can do to persuade you that Sausage Tree is THE place to stay in the Lower Zambezi.
So, what is stopping you? Now more than ever is the perfect time to visit this beautiful area of Zambia, a truly untouched and definitely unspoilt country, it would be a real shame to miss this opportunity. Botswana’s little sister – pah – Zambia stands on its own with wildlife viewing opportunities, stunning lodges and exceptional people, so please do give us a call and we will tell you tales you will want to embark on yourselves!0
