Let the stark beauty and rugged remoteness of the Lower Zambezi National Park take your breath away as you arrive to the Sausage Tree Camp. Though the wildlife is not as diverse, the opportunity to get close to the game is thrilling, particularly when resident hippos and elephants roam through the camp to snack on the new leaves and young fruits.

Each morning wake up feeling like royalty in your spacious Bedouin-style tent designed for privacy and tranquil living. Set out on a scenic boat cruise to view the large hippo pods and the lions sunning themselves on the banks above you. For the keen fisherman the Zambezi offers the challenge of fishing for tiger fish. Sit out by the boma enjoying an evening cocktail watching a stunning African sunset.

Sausage Tree Camp is one of the most extravagant in the Lower Zambezi: think a lap pool with river views, private plunge pools, double outdoor showers, expansive decks, very large tents and upscale décor. It is a favourite of honeymooners and couples, and has an enviable view of the water and mountains beyond.

Perched on the shaded river bank this luxury camp offers some wonderful experiences from guided walks to canoe trails, lunches with your toes in the water to romantic dining under the stars. After an extended walk (the region is known for its walking safaris) relax at the rim flow pool and unwind before heading out on sunset game drive or boat cruise. Romantic, intimate and luxurious this camp would be ideal for honeymooners or families with teens.

Kigelia House

Kigelia House is a perfect option for families of up to five or two couples travelling together. The two en suite bedrooms provide privacy while the lounge, spacious deck, and private pool offer plenty of sociable space to congregate, with a butler to take care of any other needs. Children under eight accommodated by special arrangement.

Luxury Suite

Experience the tranquillity in one of only seven tents relaxing on your private deck complete with stunning views of the Zambezi River. Fall asleep in your 4-poster canopy bed listening to the sounds of hippos huffing in the distance.
Wake up in the morning to a hot beverage served by your muchinda (butler) who will take care of your every need. Strolling through the camp to breakfast, enjoy the thrill of encountering elephants munching on sausage tree pods.


Listen to the rustling of the leaves in the mahogany trees as you cool off with a dip in the lap pool during the heat of the day. Sit out on the large deck and marvel at the elephants that wander by... If you want to see what is happening on the opposite shore of the Zambezi River, simply look through the camp's high-powered scope: you may see male impala rutting, elephants on their hind legs reaching for berries or even a massive crocodile basking in the sun.


Each meal at Sausage Tree Camp features locally inspired dishes made with the freshest ingredients. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style on the dck overlooking the water and occasionally organised in the shallows of the river. Dinner comprises a 3-course meal and may be served in a surprise location – under the stars on the deck. Exchange stories of the day’s adventures with your fellow guests at the camp’s great communal dining table, or opt out for a private romantic dinner.
