Sausage Tree Camp



Sausage Tree Camp is the pinnacle of bush chic.

It was established in 1996 as Zambia’s most luxurious bush camp.

With expert private guides and “Muchinda’s” (butlers) to see to your every need, you can be assured of world-class service. This exclusive safari camp was voted number one on the BBC Holiday Programme’s ‘Ten Best Luxury Destinations’, and specialises in the very best game viewing in one of the wildest destinations in the world.

The camp boasts panoramic views of the Zambezi River, which attracts an abundance of wildlife wandering along the riverbanks and even through the camp. Most importantly, guests are guaranteed private guided experiences, whether they are by land or water.

All accommodation is ensuite with a private plunge pool, private deck, indoor baths, plus
indoor and outdoor showers. All have access to a stunning 25m lap pool that overlooks the Zambezi River.
Sausage Tree Camp is unfenced, allowing the wildlife of the Lower Zambezi to roam freely, often stopping to graze right on your doorstep.

  • How do I get to the properties?

    Check out our interactive map on this website, or get in touch with our reservations team for a helpful itinerary specific to your needs.

    The main international airports you are likely to find useful when connecting to our properties are in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Lusaka, and Lilongwe.

  • Should I be taking a malaria preventative?

    Some of our properties are in Malaria areas. Please consult your health care professional regarding prophylactics for malaria at least 6 weeks before your trip or as early as possible.

    We take every precaution to ensure guests are not bitten by mosquitoes. We employ regularly maintained, amply sized and custom-made mosquito nets, fans, and supply repellent. However, we also suggest that guests cover up in the evenings.

  • How much luggage can I bring?

    Your luggage allowance will most likely be determined by the smallest carrier on your route. Please be aware that many charter flights (small planes) will only allow 12 kg per person. Luggage allowance on International flights (from Johannesburg for instance) will be anything between 20 and 30 kg on Economy tickets.

  • What if I get sick?

    Many of our staff members are 1st Aid trained. Please ensure your medical insurance is up to date – should serious medical attention be required Speciality Emergency Services will attend to guests. For Covid-19 specific information please head to our Covid-19 information page.

  • What if I’m travelling with children?

    A luxury safari in Africa is an unforgettable experience for the whole family, and our teams are experts in keeping you all safe and entertained. We have special rates for children and family rooms at most properties. Our age limit ranges from 9 to no limit, depending on which property you visit.

  • What is the best time to go on safari?

    The most popular months are between May and September when the weather in Southern Africa is cool and dry, and the wildlife is easily visible in the thinner vegetation. Depending on the floods, Chisa Busanga is only open from June to November. However, the Green Season is an incredible time to spot baby wildlife, unforgettable sunsets, and Africa’s scenery in a burst of colour you don’t get for the rest of the year. We also have special Green Season rates.
