The Lower Zambezi National Park is one of Africa's famous wilderness areas. The park is in the south-eastern corner of Zambia, opposite Mana Pools. Huge herds of buffalo, elephant and plains game are found, along with the major predators - lion, leopard and cheetah. Elusive species such as porcupine and honey badger are also seen. Over four hundred species of bird have been recorded in the area and the fishing for tiger fish, bream and huge catfish is superb.
Sausage Tree Camp is nestled amongst mature mahogany, acacia and sausage trees - so called because their seed pods look like huge salamis. It is high on the riverbank overlooking scenic channels dotted with water lilies and pods of hippo. The camp sleeps fourteen guests and has a unique style - large, white, bedouin tents provide the accommodation. Spacious and cool, the open-sided tents have expansive views of the great Zambezi River. Stunningly simple, yet extremely stylish, they deliver blissful comfort and welcome breezes. Private bathrooms, open to the air, have reed half-walls and hot showers. A huge serpentine sofa in the main tent displays a mass of creamy cushions, whilst magazines and reference books are ranged ready for your perusal. Dinner may be laid for you on a small island close to camp. Candlelight, white linen and the special scent of the bush herbs on the evening air will make this a truly romantic interlude.
The camp prides itself on the charming and helpful staff who will arrange almost anything for you. Morning and evening game drives, walking safaris led by an armed scout, tiger fishing, picnics, canoeing and motor boating are all found here. This small personalised camp offers the outdoor life in real luxury and style.
