Why we recommend Sausage Tree

"Sausage Tree Camp is one of the most luxurious camps in the Lower Zambezi, overlooking the beautiful floodplains and rugged escarpment in the distance. With no boundaries, it’s in a perfect location where the animals are free to wander straight through and around the camp making the comfort of the tent the ideal wildlife viewing sanctuary. As an added bonus, each tent has its own personal ‘muchinda’ (butler) to ensure your every need is looked after.”
