Sausage Tree Safari Camp [ En-suite safari tented accommodation ] is situated in the vast Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park and sanctuary to Africa’s famous Big Five. With approximately 2500 ha of traversing, including 4kms along the Olifants River you can look forward to a true safari experience of wilderness and undisturbed biodiversity. Uniquely positioned in the bush between Marula, Acacia and Sausage trees with its own special view above and beyond the thorn trees, our waterhole and the majestic Drakensburg range on the horizon, Sausage Tree Safari Camp is a place not easily forgotten!
- Our luxury, African-styled safari tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn, Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the majestic Northern Drakensberg Mountains. They are built in an elevated position each with its own special view.
- The tents are comfortably furnished and feature an en-suite bathroom with a bath and an outdoor shower. They are fitted with eco air conditioners ensuring that you stay cool on hot summer nights… and can be used as a heater during the colder nights in winter.
- Each tent has its own private deck with wonderful views of the mountains and the African bush.
- Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong.
The Camp and Owners
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 intimate safari camp is owned and managed by James and Sonja together with their passionate, dedicated team and prides itself on a warm, welcoming atmosphere, personal service and an authentic safari experience.
Breakfast and Dining
Breakfast and lunch is a social affair and is served on an open deck with uninterrupted views of the bush and a water hole frequented by a variety of animals. Dinner is mostly served under the stars, around the fire in our traditional styled ‘BOMA’. The camp has an indoor and outdoor lounge and a cosy bar complete with a variety of first class South African wines and a selection of South African craft beer and gin. The refreshing pool set in our deck will cool you down on our hottest summer days – the perfect place to relax between game drives.
Our new private spa area allows you to enjoy a full range of massages and treatments while overlooking the bush. We offer WIFI as a free service at Sausage Tree. We do encourage you to keep your mobile phones on ‘silent’ during your stay
Each morning and late afternoon, an experienced, professional guide and tracker 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 a myriad of birds and game species such as giraffe, zebra, warthog, kudu and impala. Sundowners will be served with tasty snacks watching the sun set over the African bush. During the drives there is a lot of emphasis on giving information on everything that is encountered – whether your interest is birding, insects, plants or trees, your guide will happily share his knowledge with you. Our guides also focus on some of the less noticeable aspects of the bush.
