Set in the Balule Nature Reserve, Sausage Tree Safari Camp
promises rich game viewing and spectacular views, as our boundary with Kruger National Park is open and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains form a majestic backdrop.
This family-owned and operated Safari Camp pride itself on the warm atmosphere offered, delicious food, beautiful views and African style safari tented accommodation. Our unassuming Camp promises an intimate nature experience in a relaxing environment where you can unwind, kick your shoes off and be yourself.
Enjoy lantern lit dinners in our boma or on our open deck under the star studded African sky. Breakfast and lunch is served on the open deck with views of the bush and waterholes frequented by a variety of resident animals. Sunrise and sunset safaris in open 4 x 4 vehicles are the highlights of the day. With our professional field guides, visitors can go in search of some of Africa’s famous variety of mammal and bird life, such as Giraffe, Zebra, African Fish Eagles, Vultures and the notorious Big 5 – Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo.
We also offer transfers to and from the Lodge / Airports as well as some very special days tours and private "add on overnight safaris".
Accommodation at Sausage Tree Safari Camp: The Safari Camp
Our African safari-styled tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains.
Each tent is spacious and built in an elevated position with it`s own special view. The tents are fully furnished and have their own private deck and en suite bathroom with a bath and outdoor shower. Inverted or Eco based Air-conditioners are fitted in each tent ensuring that you stay cool during those warm summer nights and can be set to warm during those colder nights in winter too. Insect gauze on all the windows and doors keep the insects outside where they belong.
In the main reception area, visitors will find a lounge for those lazy afternoons, and a dining area that keeps visitors dry when it rains. There is a cosy bar complete with a variety of first class South African wines. On the open deck outside, there is a sunken swimming pool and fireplace where visitors can enjoy those magical African nights. During the day, the deck has unrivaled views of the surrounding bush, dry river bed, waterhole and mountains in the background.
